What is Troi File Plug-in?

Troi File Plug-in is a very powerful tool for getting access to information outside the FileMaker Pro database. Any files or folders stored on the computer can be accessed through the functions of the plug-in. All from within FileMaker Pro you can:

  • get data from files that are on the disk of the computer into FileMaker Pro
  • create files anywhere on the hard disk and put data from FileMaker fields into them
  • manipulate files and folders on the disk: this includes creating, deleting, copying, moving and modifying files and folders
  • query detailed information of files: the size on disk, creation and modification dates and much more
  • launch files with their appropriate application directly from FileMaker Pro
  • read and write IPTC metadata to JPEG images!

What is changed

The improvements in version 3.6.1 are:

  • Fixed a bug in writing out binary data with the switch "-Encoding=ASCII_Mac", in both the TrFile_SetContents and TrFile_AppendContents functions.
  • Made improvements to the IPTC_Manipulation.fp7 example.

Suggested Uses

Troi File Plug-in allows you to:

  • Batch import any file, anywhere
  • Let the user select a folder and process the contents of this folder
  • Create a web site by exporting multiple HTML files
  • Update solutions, by moving database files into place
  • Read and write custom formatted files, for example from legacy systems
  • Catalog complete projects, including pictures, and the metadata like EXIF and IPTC

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!
