Troi Automatisering releases Troi Activator Plug-in 2.7 for FileMaker Pro 9


Updated universal and cross platform plug-in runs natively in FileMaker Pro 9 and lets you trigger scripts on the same or other computers.


October 9th, 2008, Alphen aan den Rijn, The Netherlands--Troi Automatisering today announced the availability of Troi Activator Plug-in 2.7 for FileMaker Pro 9.



What is the Activator Plug-in?


The Activator Plug-in is a very powerful tool for triggering scripts across the network, even over the Internet. All from within FileMaker you can:

-trigger a FileMaker script on a different client computer

-trigger a FileMaker script over the Internet

-run a script and send data to a different FileMaker application, all in the background

-use the built-in security to prevent unauthorized triggering

-send a number (e.g. a record ID) and a long text with the trigger

-start and stop listening for remote trigger messages with one script step


Apart from remote triggering you can also trigger scripts on the same computer:

-run a script from any FileMaker calculation, for example a tooltip calculation

-trigger a script on a specified date and time

-schedule events which trigger any script you want

-trigger a script after exiting a field

-validate fields with a custom script suited to your specific validation needs



New Features


Troi Activator Plug-in 2.7 adds these new functions and features:

-Added a new switch "-GetAllEventsList" to the Actr_GetEventInfo function. This will return a tab separated list of all the events that the plug-in knows about, including future and triggered events.

-Added a new switch "-GetAllEventIDs" to the Actr_GetEventInfo function. This will return a list of all the eventIDs that the plug-in knows about, including future and triggered events.

-Added new Actr_VersionAutoUpdate function. The Actr_VersionAutoUpdate function is part of an emerging standard for FileMaker plug-ins of third party vendors of plug-ins. The version number is returned in the format aabbccdd where every letter represents a digit of the level, so versions can be easily compared.

-Improved the display and handling of registration codes.



Suggested Uses


The Activator allows you to:

-create a real-time appointment solution, where you can notify a colleague (on a different computer) of changes in his/her appointments

-notify a user that a shared document can be used

-process data in the background in a different FileMaker application

-get someone out of a record, so that it is no longer locked


All these features also work in a runtime solution and between different versions of FileMaker Pro. So for example you can send data from a FileMaker 7 runtime to a FileMaker Pro 9 database. We invite you to test drive the new functions and see what you can do with it!
