Troi Automatisering releases Troi Dialog Plug-in 5.5.7 for FileMaker Pro 12


Alphen aan den Rijn, The Netherlands, January 14th, 2013--Troi Automatisering today announced the immediate availability of Troi Dialog Plug-in 5.5.7 for FileMaker Pro 12.



What is Troi Dialog Plug-in?


Troi Dialog Plug-in is a very powerful tool for displaying all sorts of dialogs in FileMaker Pro 12. 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, including transparent PNGs

- present a slideshow of images and movies fullscreen



What is new in version 5.5.7?


Troi Dialog Plug-in 5.5.7 is a maintenance release, it has these changes:


- Tested and made compatible with FileMaker Pro 12. The example files are now also available in the new .fmp12 format.

- Tested and made compatible with Windows 8.

- (Mac OS X) Rewrote the plug-in to prevent a crashing bug, which occurred when Troi Dialog Plug-in was installed in 2 separate places.

- (Mac OS X) Fixed a bug in FileMaker Pro 12 where the standard icons could look grayed out.

- (Mac OS X) Fixed a problem with the Dial_ProgressBar function: the progress dialog will now reappear if you do a 'incr' command after the dialog is automatically removed by the plug-in (after the defunct timeout has passed). This is the same behavior as on Windows.

- Added new switch "-GetPluginInstallPath" to the Dial_Version function: this switch will return the path where a plug-in is installed, for example "/Mac HD/Users/User Name/Library/Application Support/FileMaker/Extensions/Troi_Dialog.fmplugin".



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!
