MBS FileMaker Plugin 4.3 for OS X Windows – More than 2700 Functions In One Plugin – FileMaker Today
[FMT NewsWire – Nickenich, Germany – September 16th, 2014] — MonkeyBread Software today is pleased to announce MBS FileMaker Plugin 4.3 for Mac OS X or 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, 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 4.3 has been updated and now includes over 2700 different functions, and the versatile plugin has gained more new functions:
For Mac OS X we added new functions for the toolbars in FileMaker. We can save and restore the current configuration of the toolbar. This way you can show and hide toolbar buttons by script commands. For example go to a layout where you show a print button and than move to another layout without a print button. Next you can change the background of the toolbar to feature an image of your choice. And finally you can even add your own custom toolbar items which call a script when clicked. So you can use the toolbar to navigate your solution.
With our new SendMail functions you can create emails with multiple recipients, multiple attachments and content as html, plain or rich text. The composed email is than delivered to the SMTP server using our existing CURL functions.
Our barcode functions for creating barcode images now can export images as SVG, Postscript or bitmap picture files like JPEG or PNG. We added more options for various barcodes like the error correction level for QR Codes.
For our SQL functions to connect to other databases, we added new options to connect to MySQL with SSL encryption. We optimized the handling of PDF in blob fields and parameters with new functions.
One speciality of PDFKit on Mac OS X is the possibility to use Quartz filters for saving a PDF. We got functions to query list of installed filters and functions to show the filter manager window. Once you have a filter, you can apply it for saving and for example use an image compression filter. This can greatly reduce file size of the generated PDF file.
