Manage your media with Troi File Plug-in

Troi File plug-in can help you implement a media manager, to handle images and movies. Below you find some information on this topic.

YouTube example for photo management

Below you see a YouTube video from Nick Mokiatos Paris on YouTube, which shows an interface similar to Apple's iPhoto implemented as a FileMaker Pro database solution. It uses Troi File Plug-in to implement some of the features, like Drag and Drop, to generate different thumbnail sizes and to import original picture files.
NOTE the video does not have sound.

Drag and drop: files ànd folders

Troi File Plug-in allows you to drag one or more files or folders on a FileMaker window or even a drop zone. The paths of the dropped items can then be handled by a triggered script, for example to put them in a container field.
