Result

The function returns ? if this plug-in is not loaded. If the plug-in is loaded the result is a version number, it is returned in the format aabbccdd where every letter represents a digit of the level, so versions can be easily compared.

Originated in

Troi Text Plug-in 3.1

Compatibility

FileMaker Pro 12 to 16

Considerations

The TrText_VersionAutoUpdate function is part of an emerging 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

For example:

TrText_VersionAutoUpdate

returns 03000100 for version 3.0.1

TrText_VersionAutoUpdate

will return 05010203 for a (possible future) version 5.1.2.3

So for example to use a feature introduced with version 4.1 test if the result is equal or greater than 04010000.
