Troi Dialog Plug-in 6.1.1: improves the FlashDialog function on Windows

new June 23rd, 2015 Today we released Troi Dialog Plug-in 6.1.1, which improves the FlashDialog function on Windows where the dialog would stay considerably longer on screen than specified with the ticks parameter. We also updated the user guide.

On the version history page you can find the complete list of changes of this and previous versions.

Troi Dialog Plug-in 6.1: 64-bit compatible

Troi Plug-ins for FileMaker Pro 14 May 12th, 2015 Today we released Troi Dialog Plug-in 6.1, the new version of our flexible dialog showing plug-in. Version 6.1 adds 64-bit compatibility and will run with FileMaker 14. And we improved the Dial_Dialog function: the result can now also be the text of the button that was clicked.

Troi Dialog Plug-in 6.1 runs with FileMaker Pro 14 and FileMaker Pro Advanced 14, but also with FileMaker Pro 12 and 13.

IMPORTANT The 6.x version drops support for Windows XP (the plug-in will no longer load on XP). On Mac OS X the minimum supported system is now OS X 10.6.8 (the plug-in will not load on 10.5 and earlier).

New features introduced in version 6.0

In version 6.0 we introduced the following new features:

  • Improved the Dial_InputDialog function: popups can now display values from a second value list. The selected value from the first value list is returned. You can use this for example with a list of ItemIDs and a list of ItemDescriptions. The descriptions are shown to the user, while the ID is returned. To allow for this we updated the Dial_SetPopup function: there is now an optional last parameter secondPopupValues, which sets the second value list. When set for a popup, the plug-in automatically displays the second value list, but returns the corresponding value from the first popup list.
  • Updated the Dial_GetPopup function: when you add the switch "-SecondValueList" the plug-in returns the second value list for that popup.
  • Added the switch -AllowMultipleSelection to the Dial_ListDialog function: this allows the user to select multiple items from the list. Command-a (Mac OS X) or control-a (Windows) can be used to select all items. The selected items are returned separated by the pipe character. You can also preselect multiple items.
  • (Mac OS X) Improved the Dial_InputDialog and Dial_BigInputDialog functions: added support for undo (command-z), redo (command-shift-z), copy (command-c), paste (command-v), cut (command-x) and select all (command-a) keyboard shortcuts in the edit fields.
