Originated in

Troi Encryptor Plug-in 1.2

Compatibility

FileMaker Pro 14 to 17

Considerations

The Encr_VersionAutoUpdate function is part of a standard for FileMaker plug-ins of third party vendors of plug-ins. The version number can be easily compared, when using the Autoupdate functionality of FileMaker Server.

Example

Encr_VersionAutoUpdate

will return 02050000 for version 2.5

Encr_VersionAutoUpdate

will return 02060203 for version 2.6.2.3

So for example to use a feature introduced with version 2.6 test if the result is equal or greater than 02060000.
