Troi Dialog Plug-in 6.0 for FileMaker Pro 13

We just released Troi Dialog Plug-in 6.0, our plug-in for displaying flexible, dynamic dialogs in FileMaker Pro 13. This release adds several new features, such as the possibility to show items from a second value list in a pop-up while returning the value from the first, the possibility to choose multiple items from a list dialog and the use of several keyboard shortcuts in the edit fields of the InputDialog and BigInputDialog.

Files and Folders and FileMaker

Set Field [ result, TrFile_ListFolder( “-Files -Folders” ; “Mac HD:”) ]
This will return a text list of all files and folders on the hard disk “Mac HD”. The two switches -Files and -Folders indicate you want both types returned. This might return for example this:

Desktop Folder
Program files
Financial report.xls
