FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Troi Automatisering releases Troi Text Plug-in 2.0b1 for FileMaker 5
New Plug-in lets you parse out incoming XML data in FileMaker Pro.
Alphen aan den Rijn, The Netherlands, December 27th, 2000–For all people
still reading email just before new year, Troi Automatisering today
announced the availability of its Troi Text Plug-in 2.0b1, for FileMaker
Pro 5 (and 4) both on Mac OS and Windows.
What is the Troi Text Plug-in?
The Troi Text Plug-in is a very powerful tool for dealing efficiently with
text in your FileMaker Pro database. It adds the following functions to
– Combine sets from 2 text fields:
* get all lines that are the same
* get all lines that differ
* and other combinations
– Get (unique) lines and sort words and lines
– Make a text sum from a related file that even updates without a script.
– Parse XML Text into fields
– and more…
Peter Baanen, company president, states: “XML is becoming an increasingly
popular tool for sharing information over the Internet. It’s a great way to
standardize your incoming information from different sources. With the new
XML parsing function in this release of Troi Text plug-in, we make it
possible to efficiently take the info you need from the incoming XML data
files into your FileMaker Pro database”.
“All I can say is WOW! WOW! WOW!!! THIS IS *FABULOUS*!”, said Beverly Voth,
XML geek, Developer and DIGFM Web Ma’am, about the new XML function.
The Troi Text Plug-in 2.0b1 adds these new functions and features:
* New “XML” function.
With this function you can import information from XML data files and parse
it into your FileMaker Pro database. It will allow you to get the specified
node out of an XML formatted field. It will deal with nested nodes,
returning all child nodes or just the child node you specify. You can also
retrieve the attributes of nodes.
* New “NOTText” function.
Now you can also retrieve lines that are in one text field only.
* New SortLinesEx function
which can also sort in reverse alphabetical order.
*Improved “Version” function to retrieve the version number of the plug-in.
This allows you to check which version is running, so you’ll know if
certain functionality is available.
* Show the Flash Dialog from a script.
This makes checking the registration state for endusers easier.
* New and updated Example databases
12 FileMaker files illustrate the use of each of the functions.
Together with the existing functions the possibilities are virtually
limitless. We invite you to test drive the new functions and see what you
can do with it!
* Present portal information horizontally
* Create an index for a book, which is updated automatically
* Find all addresses you want to send an email to, without sending duplicates
* Keep track of your client relations by generating a dynamic history
* Receive client information in XML format and parse it easily into
