Troi Automatisering releases Troi Activator Plug-in 3.5.2 for FileMaker Pro 13

Updated Activator Plug-in adds compatibility with FileMaker Pro 13 and runs in 64-bit on Mac and Windows.

January 13th, 2014, Alphen aan den Rijn, The Netherlands--Troi Automatisering today announced the availability of Troi Activator Plug-in 3.5.2 for FileMaker Pro 13.

What is Troi Activator Plug-in?

Troi Activator Plug-in is a very powerful tool for triggering scripts across the network, even over the Internet. All from within FileMaker you can:

  • trigger a FileMaker script on a different client computer
  • trigger a FileMaker script over the 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 3.5.2 is compatible and tested with FileMaker Pro 13. It also adds the following features:

  • (Windows) Added support for 64-bit architecture: on Windows there are now 2 plug-ins: Troi_Activator.fmx (for 32-bit) and Troi_Activator.fmx64 (for 64-bit).
    NOTE Only Filemaker Server and FileMaker WebDirect are 64-bit processes and require the Troi_Activator.fmx64 version to be installed. On OS X the 32-bit and 64-bit version is a single universal plug-in.
    NOTE 2 Running on FileMaker Server 13 and WebDirect Troi Activator can only send messages, not receive them.
  • Improved the example file Remote: it now has far better support for running under FileMaker Server, with a built in log table, where FileMaker Server can log the execution of trigger scripts.
  • (Mac OS X) fixed a problem with the Upload Server: the webpage request with URL "/" now properly redirects to "index.html".
  • Improved the Actr_SendRemoteEvent functionality: the usertext parameter is no longer truncated when a pipe character is present; for this last parameter the pipe character is no longer treated as a separator.
  • Improved the EasyInstallTroiPlugins.fmp12 example file, adding support for installing plug-ins on FileMaker Server and for installing 64-bit Windows plug-ins, with extension fmx64.
  • Improved the code in several places.
