Troi File Plug-in comments
Here is what other users have said
Below are a few things our users had to say about Troi File Plug-in.
"Your customer service is first-class, there are many companies that could learn a lot from you about how to help and advise their clients. I really appreciate it."
"I like to thank you for an excellent plugin that has made many of my solutions two steps better than I ever could do in pure FileMaker."
"I really have to say, that Troi File Plug-in is a fantastic extension for Filemaker. Troi opens a wide range of possibilities to improve our database and helps us a lot, to make the photo-handling easier."
"We have used a single version of the original Troi File classic plug-in for a several years, converting last week to a 10 user of the v4 version for Filemaker 8+.
"I think this is a fantastic product, it does what it
says and I am overwhelmed by the functionality that is
" I just want to let you know how highly I think of your product, Troi File. I've been developing a commercial solution that makes extensive use of the plug-in. It's easy to use and most importantly, it's rock solid. I've emailed you support questions from time to time and they are always answered with the information to solve the problem.
I cannot praise your product enough."
"Two weeks ago I had a very intensive project; full automation of a data conversion routine involving import and export of thousands of files. The Troi File Plug-In (and your very helpful and timely advice) made it all happen and get delivered on time.
In the past years of doing FileMaker development the most visionary and extensive projects I have been involved in have used Troi Plug-Ins as an essential component. Troi Plug-Ins give the ability to automagically harness system level processes; the simplest way of describing it is a "Wow" factor on the client's side and a fundamentally elegant, straightforward, and fast scripting process from the developer's perspective. They put a powerhouse of programming behind FileMaker's ease of use.
Although I have used them for a wide range of
functions I still feel I've only scratched the surface of
Troi Plug-Ins possible applications. Much thanks for
providing an essential tool to FileMaker
"Thought you might be interested to hear about
something we've done using Troi File and Troi Coding." Read
how Noam Sturmwind of Oak Bay Softrends, Inc. manages to
update the local files on his client's workstations by
automatically downloading a new copy of the files when the
workstation connects to the server. "Not only does this save
us a lot of time in re-installing on each workstation, it
also means that we don't have to worry about local files
Read how Troi File Plug-in helped Heather McCue of
OshVay Associates to migrate thousands of databases for a
client and improve another client's PDF reporting solution:
"Thank you Troi, we could not have managed without you!"
"Troi File Plug-in is a truly great product. I just
wish I had looked into it properly when it first came out.
If I had known just how powerful this tool was I'd have
bought it for all my clients years ago.
"Don't leave home without Troi File Plug-in."
"Thank you for your new plug-in!
"This plugin has become somewhat integral to many of
the solutions I've worked on here. It's a lifesaver!"
"At the recent suggestion of Dana Perry, I took a look
at the Troi File Plug-in in the context of testing for the
existence of the Adobe Acrobat Reader program (before
launching PDF files from FileMaker). My study of the plug-in
confirmed for me the great power of this tool for a variety
of other tasks, including the automation of upgrades. I
developed a routine with FileMaker and the Troi File Plug-in
that I thought might interest other users." Read more

"As you might be aware, Brushfire for the Mac
originally was written using AppleScript as the glue to pull
the components together. When we ported Brushfire to the PC,
we decided to use the Troi File plug-in. With Brushfire 1.5
we are using the Troi File plug-in on both Mac and PC
versions. Not only was development with the plug-in smoother
and easier than the AppleScript development, but the
resulting code is more solid and robust. Since the switch to
the Troi File plug-in our customer support telephone calls
have dropped over 20%. I only wish we had started the
project this way! Thank you for providing such an excellent
"I can't thank you enough for this plug in. It is
incredible what I have been able to do with FileMaker now
that I have found your plug in. It's simple to understand
and I don't think I could use FileMaker without it. I use it
to create thousands of web pages from my FileMaker database
"Hello, Troi folks!
First, thanks for a great plugin in TroiFile! I've been using it to help power a great web site, www.topekamls.com (not available from 4:00 to 4:30 AM CST (GMT-7)). There we are using TroiFile, in concert with some calc fields in FMP, to detect whether a given house listing in our "available properties" FMP database actually has a picture on the hard drive or not, by using the TroiFile GetSize command - if it has a size, it's got a picture! Saved our bacon for sure, as the database we're importing the housing data from doesn't have any kind of field that would otherwise let me know if any given record has an associated picture or not. Many thanks!
We're also using TroiFile to write lasso-enabled
template-based web sites for us. It writes from an FMP
database which stores the raw HTML, and then substitues in
customer-specific data right before TroiFile writes that
html to a file out on the web server. We've got it writing
about 500, 3-page websites every week for us, at a rate of
about 1 complete site in 0.13 seconds on a rather modest AMD
K6-2 450. Talk about profitability (and more time for our
web designers to do other things)!"
"From the US side of the pond, I offer my sincere thanks for the work you put into the File Plug-In. I didn't realize the limitations that are inherent to FMP5 (Win) until I built my solution and found I couldn't include badly needed features. After being directed to your web site by a fellow developer I downloaded and tested the evaluation copy. Shortly thereafter I purchased the Developer License.
What a Blessing the plug-in has been. It is everything
that is advertised and then some. Thanks for an excellent
piece of software. If my FMP solution is half as helpful and
successful as your File Plug-in, I will be elated."
"I am having much success with your "Troi File"
Plug-In- Thank You for making such a GREAT Product! Keep up
the good work- Your products are an asset to the Filemaker
"The Troi File Plug-in is a very powerful
addition to a FileMaker user's armoury"
"This plug-in rocks! Keep up the great work"
"I tried Troi's file plug in and the demo file
sucked in a folder full of JPEGs from my Mavica 91. All the
plug in needs is a little sound file that makes the sound
heard when emptying the contents of a container via a
"I grabbed this plug-in, took it for a spin and
it is totally the tool that I've needed for many a moon. AND
it has many many other features that have my wheels turning
- Thank you for this piece of
"Thanks for the brilliant software. The Troi File
and Text plug-ins keep making my work much easier"
"I'm probably not the first to tell you:
Way-cool! Keep up the GREAT work!"
"FANTASTIC! and Congratulations! I love the File
Plug-in and can't wait to try out these new and exciting
features! Great work! Especially the new folder functions:
"I started developing with the demo, and it is a
joy to be able to do the things you can do with the File
"I'am very happy with your plugins they're better
than FileMaker itself !!"
