MBS FileMaker Plugin 7.3 - More than 4800 Functions In One Plugin
Nickenich, Germany - (July 18th, 2017) -- MonkeyBread Software today is pleased
to announce MBS FileMaker Plugin 7.3 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, Mac, 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 7.3 has been updated
and now includes over 4800 different functions, and the versatile plugin has
gained more new functions:
This plugin got a couple of features for use with iOS SDK. You can offer the
user a configurable email or message composer. Your script configures the
message and provides recipients, content and attachments. The user can edit
the email or text message and send it. Similar is our social composer which
allows you to post on Facebook, Twitter, SinaWeibo and TencentWeibo. Again
your solution can provide content including text, URL and image and the user
can edit and post. For iOS you can now use DynaPDF functions to process PDFs
on iOS devices.
Our BinaryFile function allows to read and write any file type. Raw file
reading and writing can be very useful to handle import or export in
application specific file formats.
For the script workspace our zoom controls can now be triggered with command +
and - keys. Script lines which are set to gray color by FileMaker now keep the
gray color so you can identify incompatible script steps easier. Our variable
check can now detect declarations via comments.
When handling big XML documents, you can now parse them once using XML.Parse
and than query the object in memory often. As parsing is done only once, the
performance is much better.
When playing a movie inside an interactive containers on Mac and iOS, you can
now identify the AVPlayer used by FileMaker and control it from our plugin.
For example you can get pictures for the current playing frame.
For FileMaker 16 we updated the WebView functions for website passwords (HTTP
Authentication), so you can set the passwords and avoid login dialogs. For the
new card window type, we can watch for mouse clicks on the side and trigger a
script to close the card window.
We got SSE2 enabled PNG reading, Audit with UUIDs, Dialog positioning,
Metafile conversion (EMF/WMF) for DynaPDF, lower memory usage for queued email
sending and speak commands for iOS.
Finally we updated OpenSSL to 1.1.0f and 1.0.2l, libPNG to version 1.6.30,
discount library to 2.2.2, SQLite to 3.19.3, DynaPDF to 22.214.171.124 and we use
the FileMaker 16.0.2 Plugin SDK now.
