Updated text manipulation plug-in for FileMaker Pro 15 adds compatibility with FileMaker Cloud.

First plug-in for FileMaker Cloud

Troi Text Plug-in 4.1 is the first public plug-in that can run in FileMaker Cloud, the cloud-based platform for managing and running custom apps of FileMaker Inc. Troi Text Plug-in can easily be installed with a script to FileMaker Cloud, providing easy acces to the power of its text manipulation functions to developers and organizations.

Peter Baanen, company president, states: “We are very excited to be able to add a new platform that our plug-ins can run on. We are working hard on new FileMaker Cloud compatible versions for our other plug-ins too.”

What is Troi Text Plug-in?

Troi Text Plug-in is a powerful tool for for dealing
efficiently with text in your FileMaker Pro database. It
adds the following functions to FileMaker Pro and FileMaker Cloud:

  • Parse XML text into fields
  • Combine sets from 2 text fields:

    • get all lines that differ
    • and other combinations

What is new in version 4.1?

Version 4.1 is compatible with FileMaker Cloud: you can now install Troi Text Plug-in on FileMaker Cloud and run its functions on the FileMaker Cloud server. We have created a new example file, which demonstrates how to perform the functions of the plug-in on FileMaker Cloud.

Testing in the cloud

The plug-in is fully functional in demo mode, but will stop working after two hours. We added a new switch to the TrText_Version function, which allows you to test the plug-in for two hours more, after the initial two hour period. After 12 hours the demo time is automatically reset, and you can continue testing the plug-in.
To register the plug-in on FileMaker Cloud you need a Server/Web license.
