Alphen aan den Rijn, The Netherlands, December 20th, 2001–Troi
Automatisering today announced the immediate availability of its Troi
Dialog Plug-in 3.0 for FileMaker Pro 4.0 through 5.5.

What is Troi Dialog Plug-in?

Troi Dialog Plug-in is a very powerful tool for displaying all sorts
of dialogs in FileMaker Pro. The text of the dialog and of the
buttons can be created dynamically by using a calculation. All from
within FileMaker you can:
– show dialogs with variable text and up to 4 buttons
– show an input dialog to let a user input data in up to 5 fields
– choose these input fields to be any of the following: simple text,
password field, popup list or check box
– mix these input field types as you see fit
– pre-enter text into all input fields
– have the results of the dialog put into fields without parsing
– show a list dialog
– show temporary flash screens
– show a progress bar for lengthy operations
– position the dialog box anywhere on the screen
– add a standard icon or your own icons
– set the text for the dialog title bar

Peter Baanen, company president, states: “We’ve listened carefully to our
users’ wishes and have translated this in a tool that will give developers
more control over and flexibility in designing their FileMaker dialogs than
ever. We are proud to present what we think is the ultimate dialog plug-in
for FileMaker Pro!”

“Once again, Peter has taken the time to get it right. Troi Dialog Plug-in
3.0 offers the details of dialog interaction that haven’t been available
until now.”, Albert Harum-Alvarez, (
