MBS FileMaker Plugin 14.3 for Claris FileMaker

Nickenich, Germany - (July 9th, 2024) -- Monkeybread Software today is pleased to announce MBS FileMaker Plugin 14.3 for Claris FileMaker for macOS, iOS, Linux and Windows, the latest update to their product that is easily the most powerful plugin currently available for Claris FileMaker produce line. As the leading database management solution for Windows, macOS, iOS and the web, the Claris FileMaker Pro Integrated Development Environment supports a plugin architecture that can easily extend the feature set of the application. MBS FileMaker Plugin 14.3 has been updated and now includes over 7400 different functions, and the versatile plugin has gained more new functions:

Use Python scripts in your FileMaker scripts. Use our Python functions to load a local Python library and evaluate expressions or run scripts. Get and set variables in Python to exchange data in memory. The Python code can optionally query records from FileMaker using ExecuteSQL or Evaluate functions.

Our CURL functions got enhanced to better handle MQTT connections. Use CURL.SetMQTTScript to set a script to be called when messages arrive and CURL.GetMQTTMessages to get the received messages. The debug log shows the URL for the request for helping you to debug the scripts.

If you use our Drag & Drop functions, you can use an overlay window as the drop target. Use DragDrop.AttachToOverlay function to attach a drop area on the overlay and let the user drop files on the overlay. Your script decides what to do with the files.

We got the WebView.SetVirtualHostNameToFolderMapping function to create new virtual host mapping for the WebViewer on Windows. It allows you to redirect requests to a specific domain to html files in a local folder.

We added six more SetTag functions for CFunction, CLibrary, Dictionary, Java, Mutex, and Schedule objects. This allows you to store additional information with the plugin object, e.g. a record identifier.

In DynaPDF you can now keep annotations from flattening in DynaPDF.FlattenAnnots function, if DynaPDF doesn't recognize them. The DynaPDF.Parser.FindText function can now skip sorting with the new SearchAsIs flag. You can enable an image cache for DynaPDF and change line annotation's coordinates.

Our calculation dialog tools got updated to allow using shift key to check syntax, evaluate or format only a selection of text. The code formatting can now detect lines with semicolon first and format the whole text this way. You can pre fill the list of global variables for auto complete with a list of names with SyntaxColoring.AutoCompleteVariables.SetGlobals function.

We fixed the UNNotification functions to work better in FileMaker 21, the SystemInfo.isSequoia can detect the next MacOS version and SystemInfo.MacMemoryHostStatistics provides detailed memory statistics. Use Window.HasFormattingBar to check if FileMaker shows the formatting bar in FileMaker Pro on macOS and Windows. Use FM.RecordStatistics to query size of a record and use Archive.CompressText to add text to a new archive.

Finally we updated CURL to version 8.8.0, DynaPDF to, SQLAPI to 5.3.2, SQLite to 3.46.0, LibXL to 4.3, the plugin SDK and Xcode to version 15.4.
