Troi Dialog Plug-in 6.5.1: maintenance release
15 February, 2017 Today we released Troi Dialog Plug-in 6.5.1, which adds the -ExtraLineHeight switch to the ListDialog function. This switch allows you to give extra height to list items, so they look better on hi-resolution displays. We also fixed a possible interference with other plug-ins, which could cause the registration to fail. The upgrade to version 6.5.1 is free and recommended for all users of version 6.5.
New in Troi Dialog Plug-in 6.5: optimization for FileMaker 15
In May 2016 we released Troi Dialog Plug-in 6.5, which was tested and made compatible with FileMaker 15. We further improved the multi-threading behavior of the plug-in when running in FileMaker Pro 15 and we added description and type-ahead information for all functions of the plug-in. This extra function description will be shown in FileMaker Pro 15 in the Specify Calculation dialog box when you type a function name and also as a text popup in the functions pane. The type-ahead information is used by the auto complete functionality of FileMaker Pro 15. In the calculation pane of the Specify Calculation dialog box you can now type a letter or two of the function name and instantly see a list of matching function names. For example when you type "li", the auto complete functionality will suggest the Dial_ListDialog function. You can also type a function name in the functions pane on the right: for example if you type "dial" you will see all the functions relevant to dialogs, like Dial_BigInputDialog.
Runs on Windows 10 and OS X 10.12 (Sierra)
Troi Dialog Plug-in 6.5.x runs on Windows 10, 8.1, 8 and 7 and is compatible with macOS Sierra, Mac OS X 10.11 (El Capitan), 10.10 (Yosemite), 10.9 (Mavericks), 10.8 (Mountain Lion), 10.7 (Lion) and 10.6.x (Snow Leopard).
Easy installing and updating
With FileMaker Pro 12 and later plug-ins can be installed directly from a container field! This means you no longer need the AutoUpdate feature of FileMaker Server. In our download we have included an example file EasyInstallTroiPlugins.fmp12 which installs (and autoupdates!) Troi Dialog Plug-in with FileMaker Pro.
Product updates from version 6.5 and for licenses bought on or after March 11th, 2015, are FREE: eligible users have been sent a new registration string for the 6.5.x version. Upgrades from licenses bought before March 11th, 2015, are available from US$ 35 per user. Upgrade prices for other licenses can be found on the Troi Dialog Plug-in Details page.
Real dialogs that you completely control
Troi Dialog Plug-in adds powerful dialog functions to FileMaker Pro:
Give database users the precise feedback they need
You can use any calculation to specify the text and the labels of the dialogs. This enables you to give database users more detailed information, including text from fields.
Show values from a second value list in popups
Popups in the Dial_InputDialog function can display values from a second value list. The selected value from the first value list is returned. You can use this for example with a list of ItemIDs and a list of ItemDescriptions. The descriptions are shown to the user, while the ID is returned.
Select multiple items from a list
Using the switch -AllowMultipleSelection in the Dial_ListDialog function will allow the user to select multiple items from the list. Command-a (OS X) or control-a (Windows) can be used to select all items. The selected items are returned separated by the pipe character. You can also preselect multiple items.
Use keyboard shortcuts in edit fields
We added support for using several keyboard shortcuts in the edit fields of the Dial_InputDialog and Dial_BigInputDialog functions. On OS X you can use undo (command-z), redo (command-shift-z), copy (command-c), paste (command-v), cut (command-x) and select all (command-a). On Windows you can use undo (control-z), copy (control-c), paste (control-v) and cut (control-x).
Try Troi Dialog Plug-in before you buy
These are just a few highlights of what the plug-in can do for you. More information can be found on the Dialog details page. You are invited to test the plug-in before you pay: the plug-in demo you download is fully functional.
Troi Dialog Plug-in 6.5.1 works with FileMaker Pro 12 to 15. The
plug-in can also be used with runtimes from FileMaker Pro Advanced 12 to 15.
