Troi Automatisering releases Troi Dialog Plug-in 5.5.3 for FileMaker Pro 11


Updated dialog plug-in for FileMaker Pro 11 improves on bigger icon support.


Alphen aan den Rijn, The Netherlands, June 29th, 2010--Troi Automatisering today announced the immediate availability of Troi Dialog Plug-in 5.5.3 for FileMaker Pro 11.



What is Troi Dialog Plug-in?


Troi Dialog Plug-in is a very powerful tool for displaying all sorts of dialogs in FileMaker Pro 11. The text of the dialog and of the buttons can be created dynamically by using a calculation. All from within FileMaker you can:

- show an input dialog to let a user input data in up to 15 fields and up to 4 buttons

- choose these input fields to be any of the following: simple text, password field, popup list or check box

- show a list dialog or very big text dialog

- show temporary flash screens

- show a progress bar for lengthy operations

- add a standard icon or your own custom icons, now also with transparent PNGs

- present a slideshow of images and movies fullscreen



What is new in version 5.5.3?


Troi Dialog Plug-in 5.5.3 is a maintenance release, but also adds a few enhancements:

- Added a switch to the Dial_IconControl function: -DefaultIconSize=48. This will make it the default to show all subsequent icons at 48x48, without the need to set it for each dialog function call.

- Added new switch to Dial_Version: -UnregisterPlugin. This will remove the registration data. The plug-in will be in a unregistered state after this.

- (Windows) Improved a problem in the scaling of custom icons: if the width differs from the height the icon will now be scaled proportionally.

- Fixed a problem where in some cases a spinning beachball cursor would be shown instead of the arrow cursor.

- Made small tweaks to example files.



Suggested uses

- give your users better and flexible feedback

- show quick instructions without the user having to dismiss the dialog

- build multi-language systems more easily

- make your solutions look more professional by using your own icons and title bars in dialogs

- control the way users type in data: you can, for example, let them type more than 10 and less than 40 characters

- show a slideshow of images selected from a found set, for example all images with water as a keyword

- measure time like for a race or the efficiency of 2 differently implemented scripts.


All these features also work in a runtime solution. We invite you to test drive the new functions and see what you can do with it!
