Nickenich, Germany - (July 18th, 2017) -- MonkeyBread Software today is pleased to announce MBS FileMaker Plugin 7.3 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, Mac, 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 7.3 has been updated and now includes over 4800 different functions, and the versatile plugin has gained more new functions:
This plugin got a couple of features for use with iOS SDK. You can offer the user a configurable email or message composer. Your script configures the message and provides recipients, content and attachments. The user can edit the email or text message and send it. Similar is our social composer which allows you to post on Facebook, Twitter, SinaWeibo and TencentWeibo. Again your solution can provide content including text, URL and image and the user can edit and post. For iOS you can now use DynaPDF functions to process PDFs on iOS devices.
Our BinaryFile function allows to read and write any file type. Raw file reading and writing can be very useful to handle import or export in application specific file formats.
For the script workspace our zoom controls can now be triggered with command + and - keys. Script lines which are set to gray color by FileMaker now keep the gray color so you can identify incompatible script steps easier. Our variable check can now detect declarations via comments.
When handling big XML documents, you can now parse them once using XML.Parse and than query the object in memory often. As parsing is done only once, the performance is much better.
When playing a movie inside an interactive containers on Mac and iOS, you can now identify the AVPlayer used by FileMaker and control it from our plugin. For example you can get pictures for the current playing frame.
For FileMaker 16 we updated the WebView functions for website passwords (HTTP Authentication), so you can set the passwords and avoid login dialogs. For the new card window type, we can watch for mouse clicks on the side and trigger a script to close the card window.
We got SSE2 enabled PNG reading, Audit with UUIDs, Dialog positioning, Metafile conversion (EMF/WMF) for DynaPDF, lower memory usage for queued email sending and speak commands for iOS.
Finally we updated OpenSSL to 1.1.0f and 1.0.2l, libPNG to version 1.6.30, discount library to 2.2.2, SQLite to 3.19.3, DynaPDF to 188.8.131.52 and we use the FileMaker 16.0.2 Plugin SDK now.
