Troi Automatisering releases Troi Dialog Plug-in 5.5.2 for FileMaker Pro 11

Updated dialog plug-in for FileMaker Pro 11 adds bigger icon support.

Alphen aan den Rijn, The Netherlands, May 10th, 2010--Troi Automatisering today announced the immediate availability of Troi Dialog Plug-in 5.5.2 for FileMaker Pro 11.

What is Troi Dialog Plug-in?

Troi Dialog Plug-in is a very powerful tool for displaying all sorts of dialogs in FileMaker Pro 11. The text of the dialog and of the buttons can be created dynamically by using a calculation. All from within FileMaker you can:

  • show an input dialog to let a user input data in up to 15 fields and up to 4 buttons
  • choose these input fields to be any of the following: simple text, password field, popup list or check box
  • show a list dialog or very big text dialog
  • show temporary flash screens
  • show a progress bar for lengthy operations
  • add a standard icon or your own custom icons, now also with transparent PNGs
  • present a slideshow of images and movies fullscreen

What is new in version 5.5.2?

Troi Dialog Plug-in 5.5.2 adds support for bigger icons and several other tweaks. It also fixes several bugs:

  • (Custom)icons can now be extra large, up to 48x48 pixels. With todays screen sizes this makes for pleasing dialog aesthetics.
  • Improved the Dial_Dialog function: you can now also add the switch: "-StopOnESC". With this switch the user can press the ESC key to leave the dialog.
  • (Windows) Improved support for (transparent) PNG custom icons.
  • (Mac OS X only) Added new switch "-CheckSpellingWhileTyping" to enable continuous spell checking for the Dial_BigInputDialog function.
  • (Mac OS X) Converted the Dial_ListDialog function completely to Cocoa, restoring all functionality.
  • (Mac OS X) Several bug fixes in the Dial_InputDialog function.
  • (Mac OS X) Fixed a bug in Dial_BigInputDialog function where typing the return key would result in a linefeed character in the returned text.
  • (Mac OS X) Fixed a bug in Dial_ListDialog function where empty lines would make the wrong item preselected.
  • (Windows) Fixed a flickering in the progress bar part of the Dial_ProgressBar function.
  • (Mac OS X) Reenabled setting the dialog position: Dial_SetPosition now works again for all dialog types.
  • Updated User Guide and Overview.fp7 to reflect the new functionality.

Suggested uses

  • give your users better and flexible feedback
  • show quick instructions without the user having to dismiss the dialog
  • build multi-language systems more easily
  • make your solutions look more professional by using your own icons and title bars in dialogs
  • control the way users type in data: you can, for example, let them type more than 10 and less than 40 characters
  • show a slideshow of images selected from a found set, for example all images with water as a keyword
  • measure finishing times in a race
  • measure with accuracy the efficiency of 2 differently implemented scripts.

All these features also work in a runtime solution. We invite you to test drive the new functions and see what you can do with it!
