Troi Serial Plug-in 4.5.1: maintenance release
March 2, 2017 Today we released Troi Serial Plug-in 4.5.1, which fixes a bug in the Serial_Receive function, where in some cases not all data would be returned directly. We also updated the code in several places and made several small improvements to the example files.
On the version history page you can find the complete list of changes of this and previous versions.
What can Troi Serial Plug-in do for you?
With Troi Serial you can connect to multiple serial ports and read from and write data to them all directly from FileMaker!
For FileMaker Pro 12 through 15
Troi Serial Plug-in is compatible with FileMaker Pro 12, 13, 14 and 15
and FileMaker Advanced 12, 13, 14 and 15. We tested the compatibility of Troi Serial Plug-in 4.5 with Windows 10, 8.x and 7.
Run as a server-side plug-in
Troi Serial Plug-in 4.5 is compatible to run under FileMaker Server: it can run as a server-side plug-in or as a plug-in used by WebDirect or the web publishing engine when using FileMaker Server. This means that you can use its functions in server-side scripts, opening up lots of new possibilities.
Troi Serial Plug-in has a great debug function, making setup of databases a breeze for our users. You can now troubleshoot by testing the arrival of data at the serial port and you can test script triggering too.
No more quitting
Troi Serial Plug-in can be reinitialized without quitting FileMaker Pro. This makes it possible to accommodate new or different serial ports dynamically, for example when you plug in a USB serial adapter.
And more ...
Another powerful feature is getting the last match string (for example the last line) that was received.
What are the costs?
We currently only sell a cross-platform developer license for US$ 999 which allows you to deploy it with all your solutions, both on OS X and on Windows.
