Updated script triggering plug-in for FileMaker Pro 16 improves stability.

Alphen aan den Rijn, the Netherlands, December 11, 2017–Troi today announced the immediate availability of Troi Activator Plug-in 4.5.1 for FileMaker Pro 16.

What is Troi Activator Plug-in?

Troi Activator Plug-in is a very powerful tool for triggering scripts remotely. All from within FileMaker you can:

  • trigger a FileMaker script on a different computer (remotely)
  • trigger a FileMaker script over internet
  • use the built-in security to prevent unauthorized triggering
  • send a number (e.g. a record ID) and a long text with the trigger
  • start and stop listening for remote trigger messages with one script step
  • communicate with databases in different FileMaker versions or even runtimes

Except from remote triggering you can also use the Activator Plug-in for:

  • triggering a script on a specified date and time
  • scheduling events which trigger any script you want
  • running a script from any FileMaker calculation, for example a tooltip calculation
  • validating fields on exiting a record with a custom script suited to your specific needs

What is new in version 4.5.1?

Troi Activator Plug-in 4.5.1 is a maintenance release and has the following fixes and improvements:

  • (Mac OS) Fixed a crashing problem with installing or disabling the plug-in: FileMaker Pro no longer crashes when disabling the plug-in. Note: if you have installed version 4.5 you need to remove the plug-in manually to avoid the crashing. See instructions how to manually update Troi Activator Plug-in 4.5.
  • (Mac OS) Fixed a compilation problem with code signing and extended attributes in Mac OS 10.12 (Sierra).
  • Improved type-ahead of external function names.
