Adding Bonjour functions for MBS FileMaker Plugin


For the upcoming 8.4 release of our MBS FileMaker Plugin, we include some Bonjour functions, so you can browse for services and query the result as JSON:

The Bonjour.Browse function starts browsing for a service and later you can use Bonjour.JSON to get results. The plugin will keep updating it's data, so a later query may show more recent results. This can be used to find FileMaker servers on the local network as well as AFP/SMB shares.

The function returns all matching services, their hosts and all available IP addresses, so you can easily connect to them via CURL, SQL functions or Files.Mount function for network shares.

If you have more ideas on what you may want or you like to try it out, please contact us by email.

MBS FileMaker Plugin 8.3 released


Nickenich, Germany - (July 17th, 2018) -- MonkeyBread Software today is pleased to announce MBS FileMaker Plugin 8.3 for macOS, iOS, Linux and Windows, the latest update to their product that is easily the most powerful plugin currently available for FileMaker Pro. As the leading database management solution for Windows, macOS, iOS and the web, the FileMaker Pro Integrated Development Environment supports a plugin architecture that can easily extend the feature set of the application. MBS FileMaker Plugin 8.3 has been updated and now includes over 5300 different functions, and the versatile plugin has gained more new functions:

If you need to pick a color, we got new ColorPanel functions. On MacOS they show the floating palette from Apple to pick a color and you get a script triggered when a new color is chosen. For Windows, it shows the standard color picker dialog and you get back the color chosen right away.

For CURL, we got a new CURL.SetupOAuth function for oAuth to use web services with Open Authentication easier. The function handles the signatures required for a query with oAuth and signs request with your given keys. We added a few new options to CURL functions and disallow username and passwords in URLs by default.

If you have a digital camera connected to your Mac, you can use our improved ImageCapture functions to query images on the camera, download them and even take new images with your tethered camera. You can get back JSON for devices, parameters and features.

As FileMaker 15 and newer are 64-bit only on Mac, we include only 64-bit for our Mac plugin. The 32-bit plugin is still available for older versions of FileMaker, but renamed to "MBS 32-bit.fmplugin". If you are not sure which one to install, you can simply install both and FileMaker ignores the other one.

GraphicsMagick functions got an upgrade to use 16-bit colors on MacOS. This allows you to edit 16-bit images better. We also got new functions to detect gray images, query quantum depth and read gradients.

For iOS you can use BlueThermProbe functions for using a BlueTherm™ Probe device from ThermoWorks with iOS. You can connect to device, query information and the temperatures.

For your FileMaker windows on MacOS, you can change the toolbar menus to remove entries using Window.ConfigureToolbarMenu function. You can query the height of the toolbar in FileMaker using Window.TopHeight function.

Our new Text.AddLineNumbers function allows you to add line numbers to existing text and preserve the formatting. This allows you to use functions like JSON.Format and XML.Format to format JSON or XML text. Than with JSON.Colorize or XML.Colorize, you add colors and than add line numbers with the function above.

On Windows you may have seen the COM dialog for message timeouts or delays: "Error: Server Busy. This action cannot be completed because the other program is busy". By calling FM.InitMessageFilter once on start, you can disable this dialog. The plugin will tell COM modules to wait and not show a dialog, so your users won't see the dialog any more.

The shell functions can close the streams, you can query mount path for network volume, you can add value to plugin variables thread safe, sockets got a new tag property and better handle IPv6, FileDialog functions got upgraded on Windows for newer APIs, we got a CRC32 function, Speech functions include pause and resume, audit can lookup fields by ID and ignores table prefixes in field names, we got new modes for showing popup menus, new dock width/height functions, ImagePicker overlays for iOS and you can jump to next search result with Command-G in search bars.

Finally we updated CURL to version 7.61.0, DynaPDF to version 4.0.21.54, OpenSSL to 1.1.0h and 1.0.2o, SQLite to 3.24.0 and SQLAPI to version 4.3.3.

See release notes for a complete list of changes.

MBS Xojo Plugins 18.3


Nickenich, Germany - (July 17th, 2018) -- MonkeyBread Software today is pleased to announce MBS Xojo Plugins 18.3 for macOS, iOS, Linux and Windows, the latest update to their product that is easily the most powerful plugin collection currently available for Xojo. MBS Xojo Plugins 18.3 have been updated and now includes over 2400 classes and 62000 documented features, and the versatile plugins have gained more new functions:

Our Bluetooth plugin got more features: We added Bluetooth classes for Mac and Windows to list and communicate with bluetooth devices. For Windows we have a WindowsBlueToothSocketMBS class to communicate with devices like the socket classes. We added Bluetooth LE functions for Windows in addition to existing CoreBluetooth functions for Bluetooth LE for MacOS.

For all fans of SSH, we got a new tunnel feature. You can use SSH2TunnelMBS class to start a SSH tunnel which forwards one TCP/IP connection on a background thread to another computer. This can even be used to forward for example MySQL or Postgres database connection over SSH and use the database classes to connect though the tunnel to the server. With SSH2SessionMBS.OpenDirectTCPIPChannel you can open a tunnel and feed it yourself with the class methods.

For SQL Plugin, we got a built-in CubeSQL library, so you can enable this library and you don't need to include CubeSQL DLL yourself. Our new InsertRecord and UpdateRecord functions for SQLDatabaseMBS and SQLConnectionMBS allow you to easier provide data with dictionary and have the plugin build the SQL command for you. For SQLite you can easier query used memory.

For CURL, we got a new CURLSMBS.SetupOAuth function for oAuth to use web services with Open Authentication easier. The function handles the signatures required for a query with oAuth and signs request with your given keys. We added a few new options to CURL functions and disallow username and passwords in URLs by default.

If you need to mount a network disk, please try the new MountMBS functions. If needed you can use MountPathMBS function to query path of a network disk. The UnmountMBS function can unmount the disk later. For MacOS you can use NetFSMountMBS function to mount disks asynchronously with events to not block user interface and allow the user to cancel.

On Windows you may have seen the COM dialog for message timeouts or delays: "Error: Server Busy. This action cannot be completed because the other program is busy". By calling InitMessageFilterMBS once on startup, you can disable this dialog. The plugin will tell COM modules to wait and not show a dialog, so your users won't see the dialog any more.

For 64-bit applications, you can use new AVCaptureViewControlMBS and AVPlayerViewControlMBS controls with AVFoundation to get Apple's standard playback and recording controls. We also improved AVAudioPlayerMBS class.

We got WindowsGraphicsInfoMBS constructors, improved NSMenuItemMBS class with debugger visible properties, new shared methods for GMColorMBS class, more methods for GZipFileMBS and improved error handling and more properties for TiffPictureMBS class.

Finally we updated CURL to version 7.61.0, DynaPDF to version 4.0.21.54, Rockey4NDMBS to use newer libraries, optipng to version 0.77, OpenSSL to version 1.1.0h and 1.0.2o, SQLite to version 3.24.0, SQLAPI to 4.3.3 and use the Xojo 2018r2 plugin SDK.

See release notes for a complete list of changes.

Neues MBS FileMaker Plugin 8.3


17. Juli 2018 - Monkeybread Software veröffentlicht heute das MBS Plugin für FileMaker in Version 8.3, mit inzwischen über 5300 Funktionen eines der größten FileMaker Plugins überhaupt. Hier einige der Neuerungen:

Wenn Sie eine Farbe auswählen möchten, können Sie die neuen ColorPanel Funktionen verwenden. Bei MacOS zeigen wir die Palette an von Apple und wenn der Benutzer eine Farbe auswählt, bekommen Sie ein Skript aufgerufen mit der neuen Farbe. Für Windows zeigen wir den Standarddialog für Farben und Sie bekommen dann die gewählte Farbe zurück.

Für CURL haben wir eine neue CURL.SetupOAuth Funktion für oAuth, mit der Sie Anfragen an einen WebService unter Verwendung von Open Authentication signieren können. Bei CURL haben wir neue Optionen und verbieten standardmäßig das Passwort mit in der URL zu übergeben.

Wenn Sie eine digitale Kamera mit ihrem Mac verbinden, dann können Sie über die ImageCapture Funktionen auf die Kamera zugreifen. Sie fragen Bilder ab, laden ausgewählte Bilder zum Mac oder schießen neue Fotos per Pluginfunktion. Mit neuen Funktionen können Sie die Geräte, Parameter und Features als JSON Text abfragen.

Da FileMaker 15 und neuer nur als 64-bit Anwendung für Mac daher kommen, liefern wir das MBS Plugin für macOS nur als 64-bit Plugin aus. Das 32-bit Plugin bleibt weiterhin verfügbar und liegt mit dem Dateinamen "MBS 32-bit.fmplugin" bei. Wenn Sie nicht wissen, welches Plugin Sie benötigen, können Sie einfach beide installieren und dann lädt FileMaker schon das richtige.

Unsere GraphicsMagick Funktionen verwenden 16-bit Farben bei MacOS. Dies erlaubt ihnen die Verarbeitung von Bildern mit 16-bit Farbtiefe. Wir haben neue Funktionen im Graustufenbilder zu erkennen, die Quantum Tiefe abzufragen und Gradienten zu lesen.

Für iOS können Sie mit den BlueThermProbe Funktionen die BlueTherm™ Probe Geräte von ThermoWorks unter iOS verwenden. Verbinden Sie das iOS Gerät per Bluetooth zum Messgerät, fragen Sie Informationen ab und lesen Sie die Temperatur aus.

Für die Fenster bei FileMaker unter MacOS, können Sie mit der Window.ConfigureToolbarMenu Funktion das Toolbar Menü konfigurieren und Einträge entfernen. Mit der Funktion Window.TopHeight können Sie die Höhe der Toolbar im Fenster abfragen.

Die neue Text.AddLineNumbers Funktion erlaubt es Ihnen Text mit Zeilennummern zu versehen. Dabei bleibt die Formatierung im Text erhalten. Zusammen mit den Funktionen JSON.Format und XML.Format zum Formatieren von JSON bzw. XML und den Funktionen JSON.Colorize und XML.Colorize zum einfärben, können Sie entsprechenden Text für den Benutzer schön aufbereiten.

Für Windows haben Sie vermutlich schon mal den COM Standarddialog gesehen für Timeouts: "Server ist ausgelastet" "Dieser Vorgang konnte nicht ausgeführt werden, da die andere Anwendung aktiv ist....". Durch den Aufruf unserer neuen Funktion FM.InitMessageFilter passiert das nicht mehr, weil am MBS Plugin die COM Aufrufe warten lässt bis zur Antwort und eben nicht diesen Dialog anzeigt.

Die Shell Funktionen können auch die Standard-Datenströme schließen, Sie können für Netzwerklaufwerke die URL abfragen, bei Plugin Variablen Thread-sicher den Wert erhöhen, Sockets haben eine Tag Eigenschaft und verwenden IPv6 besser, die FileDialog Funktionen nutzen bei Windows neuere Dialog APIs, wir haben eine neue CRC32 Funktion, die Speech Funktionen können auch pausieren, Audit kann Felder per ID finden und ignoriert Tabellen Prefixe in Feldnamen, wir haben neue Modi für Popup Menüs, neue Funktionen für die Dock Größe, ImagePicker Bildüberlagerung für iOS und Sie können mit Befehl-G zum nächsten Suchergebnis springen in der Suchleiste.

Außerdem haben wir die CURL Bibliothek auf Version 7.61.0 aktualisiert, DynaPDF auf Version 4.0.21.54, OpenSSL auf Version 1.1.0h und 1.0.2o, SQLite auf Version 3.24.0 und SQLAPI auf Version 4.3.3.

Alle Änderungen in den Release Notes.

FileMaker Magazin - MBS Artikel


For our German speaking users:

Wir haben die Artikel zum MBS Plugin aus dem FileMaker Magazin gesammelt hier online gestellt:

Wir empfehlen allen FileMaker Anwender ein Abo vom Magazin und den Kauf der alten Ausgaben. Das FileMaker Magazin ist eine exzellente Quelle von Informationen, Anleitungen und Profitips.


Upcoming Xcode changes


When a new version of MacOS and Xcode is coming, one of the first things to read are the release notes. As we support FileMaker and Xojo versions for 10+ years, we tend to have really old minimum system requirements.

As far as we were told, the new Xcode version doesn't build 32-bit code any more. Also Apple highly recommends us to move from libstdc++ to libc++, which implies a MacOS 10.9 minimum.

Now if we as developer of the MBS Plugins would move next year to MacOS 10.15, we would no longer be able to run 32-bit only applications ourselves. This includes all FileMaker versions before 14 and all Xojo versions before 2017r3.

With Xcode 10 on MacOS X 10.14 new plugins can only be 64-bit on MacOS. It may be possible to install Xcode 9 in parallel and keep it for building 32-bit for the next years like we did for years with old Xcode with PPC code.

So be warned that one of the next MBS Plugin releases may be 64-bit only on Mac. Older versions stay available, but if older Xcode 9 would no longer run, we would not be able to build 32-bit.

See also The status of 32-bit and 64-bit macOS apps on Xojo Blog. Xojo may itself only build 64-bit on Mac soon.

New SQL Insert and Update functions for our Xojo Plugin


Writing prepared statements to update fields in a database or to make an insert can be challenge for some of our users. So we got an easier way for most inserts/updates, which may help you:

InsertRecord(TableName as String, Record as Dictionary)
UpdateRecord(TableName as String, Record as Dictionary, Keys as Dictionary)

Those functions are available both on SQLDatabaseMBS and SQLConnectionMBS classes. They allow you to pass table name and field values as dictionaries. The keys in the dictionaries must of course match the names of the database fields exactly. We create the SQL statement for you and run it with the given values bound to the parameters. For the update statement, you provide the primary keys in a dictionary to identify the records to update.

Especially for the primary keys, the pair syntax is quite useful: new dictionary("ID":2). This means you create a new dictionary by passing a pair with key and value to be inserted in the new dictionary.

Same code may look like this:

dim db as SQLDatabaseMBS // your database connection
dim d as new Dictionary

d.Value(kFieldPersonFirstName) = FirstName.text
d.Value(kFieldPersonLastName) = LastName.text

db.UpdateRecord(kTablePerson, d, new dictionary("ID":2))

if db.Error then
    MsgBox db.ErrorMessage
end if

As always, it's useful to put names of tables and fields into constants, so you may not type them incorrectly and the compiler catches mistyped constant names.
