Troi Text Plug-in is a very powerful tool for dealing efficiently with text in your FileMaker Pro database. It adds spell checking, set creation, lines and word functions, XML parsing and more!

Ready for FileMaker Cloud!

Troi Plug-ins for FileMaker Cloudnew October 27, 2016 Today we released Troi Text Plug-in 4.1 for FileMaker Pro 15, 14, 13 and 12. In this version we added a new platform: you can now use Troi Text Plug-in with FileMaker Cloud. Note that you need a Server/Web license to register this plug-in on FileMaker Cloud.
In order to test the plug-in before you order a license, you can run the plug-in in demo mode. We have added a new example file to the download (TextOnFMCloud.fmp12), which demonstrates how to perform the functions of the plug-in on FileMaker Cloud. When running the plug-in in demo mode, it will stop working after two hours. We added a new switch -ResetDemoTestTime to the TrText_Version function, which allows you to test the plug-in two hours more on FileMaker Cloud. Note that after 12 hours the demo time is automatically reset, and you can continue testing the plug-in.

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

You can use the plug-in with with FileMaker Pro 15, 14, 13 and 12.

Great features!

With the plug-in installed you can do all this from within FileMaker:

  • Parse XML text
  • Combine sets from 2 text fields:
    • get all lines that are the same
    • get all lines that differ
    • and other combinations
  • Get (unique) lines and sort words and lines
  • Perform customized spell checking*

Completely customizable spell checking*

In version 4.0 we added a completely customizable spell checker. The advantage of this function is that this can be configured completely from the database with calculations. You can specify a custom spelling (language) per database or even per text field, all driven from a script or a calculation. You can also specify to ignore words you or your company might use.
* currently not available on FileMaker Cloud

Easy installing and updating

With FileMaker Pro 12 and later plug-ins can be installed directly from a container field. In our download we have included an example file EasyInstallTroiPlugins.fmp12 which installs (and autoupdates!) our plug-ins with FileMaker Pro, FileMaker Server and FileMaker Cloud.
This example supports the 64-bit version of FileMaker Pro 14 and 15. On Windows there are 2 plug-ins: Troi_Text.fmx (for 32-bit) and Troi_Text.fmx64 (for 64-bit).
NOTE FileMaker Pro 15 and 14 and FileMaker Server 15 and 14 as well as Filemaker Server 13 and FileMaker WebDirect are 64-bit processes and require the Troi_Text.fmx64 version to be installed. On OS X the 32-bit and 64-bit version is a single universal plug-in. For FileMaker Cloud you need to use the Cloud version of the plug-in, which we added to the EasyInstallTroiPlug-ins.fmp12 example from version 4.1.

Run as a server-side plug-in

Troi Text Plug-in is compatible to run under FileMaker Server: it can run as a server-side plug-in or as a plug-in used by WebDirect or the web publishing engine when using FileMaker Server. This means that you can use the powerful text functions in server-side scripts, opening up lots of new possibilities.
