MBS FileMaker Plugin 10.1 - More than 6100 Functions In One Plugin
Nickenich, Germany - (March 10th, 2020) -- MonkeyBread Software today is pleased to announce MBS FileMaker Plugin 10.1 for macOS, iOS, Linux and Windows, the latest update to their product that is easily the most powerful plugin currently available for FileMaker Pro. As the leading database management solution for Windows, macOS, iOS and the web, the FileMaker Pro Integrated Development Environment supports a plugin architecture that can easily extend the feature set of the application. MBS FileMaker Plugin 10.1 has been updated and now includes over 6100 different functions, and the versatile plugin has gained more new functions:

Optimized syntax highlighting for MacOS to be faster on scrolling. You can now pick a font via preferences dialog or via SyntaxColoring functions to use a custom font for script workspace and calculation dialogs. The MBS Plugin now remembers column widths for themes, custom menus, data sources, security and privileges and value lists dialogs in FileMaker. We added new context menu entries for several lists in FileMaker to sort entries, e.g. to sort layouts or fields by name.

For Windows check the new WebView.PostURL function. Use it to load a website with GET or POST method and include POST data, e.g. to send a form directly and show resulting webpage. Pass additional headers with the request including a different user-agent, e.g. to pass a browser check which do not like Internet Explorer. Our preferences dialog for Windows can take your license key directly.

With SharedMemory functions you can store named values in memory shared with other applications on the computer. The content persists till a reboot or when you delete it and can be read even when FileMaker is quit in-between.

For Contacts we got CNContact.DeleteValue to delete a value and CNContact.Show to show a contact on screen. Please use CNContactPicker.Show to show a picker to pick a contact from your address book on MacOS and iOS.

In GraphicsMagick functions we can now extract thumbnail from EXIF data in a JPEG image. And you can check the font map used for annotating with text using GMImage.FontMap.

The CLGeocoder functions can now return result as JSON block. For Windows Media Foundation Player, you can now take screenshots and play the video/audio as loop. With DynaPDF you can now use the Windows certificate store to pick a certificate using a standard dialog when signing a PDF document. Using FM.SetDisableContextualMenus you can now disable context menus for FileMaker.

Our JavaScript functions got new functions to convert time to/from JavaScript. We got an automatic type detection mode for FileMaker XML on the clipboard. Our styled text handling on MacOS can now handle strikethrough attribute. Using ScriptWorkspace.StyledScriptText and ScriptWorkspace.CopyScriptText you can automate to save scripts.

Finally we updated to newer Plugin SDK, CURL version 7.69.0, DynaPDF to, SQLAPI to 5.0.5 and SQLite to 3.31.0.
