Troi Dialog Plug-in 4.5
Troi Automatisering today released Troi Dialog Plug-in 4.5 for FileMaker Pro 8.5, a Universal and cross-platform plug-in for the database system. Troi Dialog Plug-in 4.5 ensures the list of Dialog functions is visible when creating custom functions, adds a consistency check for missing resources, fixes several bugs, and includes cleaned up example files. Troi Dialog Plug-in 4.5 works with FileMaker Pro 7, 8, and 8.5. The plug-in is also usable with runtimes from FileMaker Developer 7, FileMaker Advanced 8, or FileMaker Advanced 8.5. Troi Dialog Plug-in 4.5 requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later, and is priced at $50.
The plug-in can display various types of dialogs in FileMaker Pro 8.5, dynamically or via calculation. From within FileMaker users can show dialogs with variable text; display a dialog designed to accept input from users in up to nine fields with various data types; show a list dialog or "big text" dialog; display temporary flash screens; show a progress bar for time consuming operations; position the dialog box anywhere on the screen; and add custom or standard icons.
