Troi Automatisering releases Troi File Plug-in 3.0.7 for FileMaker Pro 8


Updated plug-in for FileMaker Pro 8, for Mac and Windows, lets you manipulate your files and folders directly from your databases.


Alphen aan den Rijn, The Netherlands, April 26th, 2006--Troi Automatisering today announced the availability of a new version of Troi File Plug-in for FileMaker Pro 8.



What is Troi File Plug-in?


Troi File Plug-in is a very powerful tool for getting access to information outside the FileMaker Pro database. Any files or folders stored on the computer can be accessed through the functions of the plug-in. All from within FileMaker Pro you can:

- get data from files that are on the disk of the computer into FileMaker Pro

- create files anywhere on the hard disk and put data from FileMaker fields into them

- manipulate files and folders on the disk: this includes creating, deleting, copying, moving and modifying files and folders

- query detailed information of files: the size on disk, creation and modification dates and much more

- launch files with their appropriate application directly from FileMaker Pro



What is new in version 3.0.7?


This release has these changes:

- Added new example file RecursiveFolder.fp7. This powerful example lists all folders inside a folder and optionally performs an action on all the files in the folders.

- Improved handling of EXIF data (of corrupt images) in the TrFile_MetaData function.

- (Mac OS X) Improved handling of SMB network disks. Fixed problems in several functions: TrFile_CopyFile, TrFile_LaunchFile, TrFile_SelectFileDialog, and TrFile_SaveFileDialog.

- (Windows) Improved the TrFile_SelectFileDialog and TrFile_SaveFileDialog functions to work better with longer file paths of up to 1000 characters.

- (Mac OS X) Improved TrFile_SetFileAttribute, TrFile_GetFileCreator and TrFile_GetFileType: when a file has no Creator or FileType associated with it, the functions will now use the visible text: "0000", that is 4 zero characters (Unicode 30) instead of 4 invisible Unicode 0 characters.

-Cleaned up code in several places and prepared for universal binary.

- Plus several other minor fixes and improvements.



Suggested Uses


- Batch import of any text file, anywhere

- Let the user select a folder and process the contents of this folder

- Create a web site by exporting multiple HTML files

- Update solutions, by moving database files into place

- Read and write custom formatted files, for example from legacy systems

- Catalog complete projects, including pictures, and the meta data like EXIF and IPTC
