Using a HTML slider in Filemaker with Webviewer and our plugin

Well, the question today is, how do we get this slider to be used in Filemaker solutions:

The idea is to run it in a web viewer control in Filemaker. We want to get update events from the slider to update a value in our filemaker database. Also we want to have a way to update the slider with a value from filemaker. This way we can save the value in our database and load value in database while also updating it when the user changes the slider. Same way you could embed any control you find in web development toolboxes. We found a nice slider for this example. (more)

[ANN] MBS FileMaker Plugin 2.5 for OS X/Windows - 765 Functions In One Plugin

MBS FileMaker Plugin 2.5 for OS X/Windows - 765 Functions In One Plugin - Published on 01/24/12

MonkeyBread Software today announces MBS FileMaker Plugin 2.5 for Mac OS X or Windows, easily the most powerful plugin currently available for FileMaker Pro. The leading database management solution for Windows, Mac, and the web, the popular IDE supports a plugin architecture that enables additions to its built-in feature set. MBS FileMaker Plugin 2.5 is the latest update of this versatile plugin and adds new features and capabilities, including CURL upload/download and CUPS printer functions. (more)

License changes

After some talks with a lot of Filemaker developers over the last months, we change the licenses a little bit.
  • As before we keep the 5 to unlimited seat options for companies doing their in house development with Filemaker and simply buy a license matching their seat requirements.
  • Also we keep the runtime license for people who create runtimes.
  • We add a new license for people who want to use the plugin on Filemaker Server.
  • And as several professional developers asked us, we also add a flat rate, our Pro Developer license. This way a developer can license the plugin once and use in all solutions for all clients.
Of course serial numbers must be hidden, e.g. by putting them in startup script and disallow users to see this script.

I hope this works well for you and as we honor existing licenses, we will certainly find special upgrade deals for you as well as sending out replacement license keys.

Filemaker Magazine

The Filemaker Magazine (in German) published a new issue a few days ago and it features an article from me about our MBS Filemaker plugin.

We show you how to scale pictures in Filemaker 7 to 11 on Mac and Windows with our plugin using the GraphicsMagick plugin. While working on the article and all the scale options in the plugin, I also improved the documentation on the GMImage.Scale. You can specify a size like "600x400" or a percentage like "50%". Also you can use > and < to scale only if image is bigger/smaller than target size. Also we talk a little about loading and saving images and querying size. Don't hesitate to send us questions about our plugins.

Also if you have time to come to Hamburg next week, don't miss the Filemaker meeting in Wandsbek. 12th January 2012 at 7 pm in the Block House Wandsbek.
