CURL from command line to Plugin

Sometimes people find example code for using some web service like this:

curl -k -H "APIKey : 3024224b-1322-41be-2323-12345678a530" -H "Content-Type: application/json" -X POST -d "[{SCID: 'TH258', DateWeekEnding:'2013-09-27',Details :[{PayElementCode : 'BASIC' , TotalValue:100.10}]}]" "https://mobile.something.test/Common.API/api/Payroll/PostPayslips"

Now how to translate to plugin calls? (more)

Well, it's more like a lottery. I applied for Berlin so maybe we can meet there :-)

Hide the Close/Minimize/Zoom button on Mac OS X

On Mac OS X you can hide the buttons on the window title bar with our plugin. With both FileMaker and Xojo (RealStudio), we have code in next prerelease.

For Real Studio and Xojo we have an example project to disable or hide the buttons.

For FileMaker we have our normal functions to disable the buttons which will now hide them also.

Sometimes it is good to disable the buttons to disallow the user to close the window while some process is running.

MBS Filemaker Plugin, version 3.4pr3

New in this prerelease of the 3.4 plugins:
  • Our Mac plugin is now code signed.
  • Updated CURL to version 7.32.0.
  • Added first version with 64 bit support for Mac OS X. This enables you to use our plugin in WebPublishing on FileMaker Server.
  • Improved SQL functions to work on FileMaker 12 and newer version.
  • Added DynaPDF.DeletePage function.
