Troi Activator Plug-in 1.3 for FileMaker Pro 5.5


Troi Automatisering releases Activator Plug-in 1.3 for FileMaker 5.5

Triggering of FileMaker scripts on a different computer now also available
for FileMaker 5.5 and Mac OS X.

Alphen aan den Rijn, The Netherlands, July 17th, 2001– Troi Automatisering
today announced the availability of Troi Activator Plug-in 1.3, for
FileMaker 5.5 and for Mac OS, Mac OS X and Windows.

What is the Activator Plug-in?

The Activator Plug-in is a very powerful tool for triggering scripts across
the network, even over the Internet. All from within FileMaker you can:

* trigger a FileMaker script on a different client computer
* trigger a FileMaker script over the Internet
* use the built-in security to prevent unauthorized triggering
* send a number (e.g. a record ID) and a long text with the trigger
* start and stop listening for remote trigger messages with one script step

Apart from remote triggering you can also trigger scripts on the same computer:
* trigger a script on a specified date and time
* schedule events which trigger any script you want
* trigger a script after exiting a field
* validate fields with a custom script suited to your specific
validation needs
* put the computer to sleep till it needs to be activated again (Mac only).

Peter Baanen, company president, states: “”””””””We’re proud to present this
plug-in for the Mac OS X platform at the the start of Macworld New York.
Not only did we add native Mac OS X support, we also added support for
FileMaker Developer 5 runtimes on Windows. We even went back in (version)
time by adding support for FileMaker Pro 4 on the Windows platform. Now you
can even trigger a FileMaker Pro 4 database on Windows from FileMaker 5.5
on Mac OS X!””””””””

New Features

The Troi Activator Plug-in 1.3 adds these new functions and features:

* Tested with FileMaker 5.5 and made compatible for Mac OS X. The
Mac OS version of the plug-in is now a so called ‘Super Fat’ plug-in
that will run native on Mac OS 8, 9 and on Mac OS X.
* You can now schedule an event without parameters.
* Added support for runtimes (including kiosk mode) created with
FileMaker Developer 5 for Windows and FileMaker Developer Edition 4.0
for Windows.
* Added support for FileMaker Pro 4.0 for Windows and FileMaker Pro
4.1 for Windows.

Suggested Uses

The Activator allows you to:
* create a real-time appointment solution, where you can notify a
colleague (on a different computer) of changes in his/her appointments
* notify a user that a shared document can be used
* start processing scientific data on a lab computer (see our Serial
Plug-in for connecting FileMaker to serial devices:
( )
* get someone out of a record, so that it is no longer locked
* schedule processing of incoming email and put the computer to
sleep the rest of the time, saving energy

The possibilities are only limited by your imagination! We invite you
to test drive the new functions and see what you can do with it!
