Optimized for FileMaker 15
May 24th, 2016 Today we released Troi URL Plug-in 4.5, which has been tested and made compatible with FileMaker Pro 15 on OS X and Windows. In this version we added a new function TURL_GetLastHTTPStatusCode: this function will return the HTTP response status code from the last executed HTTP request. We also further improved the multi-threading behavior of the plug-in when running in FileMaker Pro 15 and we added description and type-ahead information for all functions of the plug-in. This extra function description will be shown in FileMaker Pro 15 in the Specify Calculation dialog box when you type a function name and also as a text popup in the functions pane. The type-ahead information is used by the auto complete functionality of FileMaker Pro 15. In the calculation pane of the Specify Calculation dialog box you can now type a letter or two of the function name and instantly see a list of matching function names. For example when you type "pos", the auto complete functionality will suggest the TURL_Post function. You can also type a function name in the functions pane on the right: for example if you type "auth" you will see all the functions relevant to authorization, like TURL_GetAuthorizationURL.
You can download Troi URL Plug-in 4.5 on the Troi URL Plug-in download page.

Run as a server-side plug-in
Troi URL Plug-in 4.5 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 the web publishing engine when using FileMaker Server.

Automatic UTF-8 detection
With Troi URL Plug-in you can retrieve web pages, images and fill in HTTP forms all from FileMaker Pro. Troi URL Plug-in 3.5 added automatic UTF-8 detection. The plug-in will show UTF-8 encoded results from the Post and Get functions correctly in FileMaker Pro. We also added a function to set the Consumer Key and Consumer Secret for an OAuth authorization, so you can interact with web services that require OAuth authentication. We have supplied an example file that shows how you can let Troi URL Plug-in talk to a web service with OAuth authentication.
Send (authorized) tweets from FileMaker!
Troi URL Plug-in makes it easy to authorize an account using the OAuth protocol. Twitter uses this protocol to secure their Twitter API. After authorization, tweets (and other commands) can be sent for an account from FileMaker without the need to log in. We have included a Twitter example file in the download.
Do much more than the web viewer
The native Web viewer introduced with FileMaker Pro 8.5 also made it possible to get data from web sites. However, Troi URL Plug-in can do much more:
