What is Troi Activator Plug-in?
Troi Activator Plug-in is a very powerful tool for triggering scripts across the network, even over internet.
All from within FileMaker you can:
- trigger a FileMaker script on a different client computer
- trigger a FileMaker script over internet
- run a script and send data to a different FileMaker application, all in the background
- 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
Apart from remote triggering you can also trigger scripts on the same computer:
- run a script from any FileMaker calculation, for example a tooltip calculation
- trigger a script on a specified date and time
- schedule events which trigger any script you want
- trigger a script after exiting a field
- validate fields with a custom script suited to your specific validation needs
What is new?
Troi Activator Plug-in 4.0 has been made compatible with FileMaker 15:
- Further improved the multi-threading behavior of the plug-in when running in FileMaker Pro 15.
- 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 on the right. The type-ahead information is used by the auto complete functionality of FileMaker Pro 15.
Version 4.0 also has the following improvements:
- You can now schedule up to 1500 events to trigger, up from 1000.
- Improved the example file EasyInstallTroiPlugins.fmp12, to provide more help when an installation error occurs.
- Updated the UploadData.fmp12 example file: it now correctly shows a Google Map in a webviewer.
In addition to this, version 4.0 has several bug fixes and further improvements. We also updated the User Guide.
