Troi Automatisering releases Activator Plug-in 1.4 for FileMaker 7 and 6.

Triggering of FileMaker scripts on a different computer now also
available for FileMaker 7.

Alphen aan den Rijn, The Netherlands, March 23rd, 2004– Troi
Automatisering today announced the availability of Troi Activator
Plug-in 1.4, for FileMaker 7 and FileMaker 6.

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
– run a script and send data to a different FileMaker application,
all in the background
– 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

Peter Baanen, company president, states: “With the compatibility with
FileMaker 7 developers now also have a great script trigger tool for
FileMaker Pro 7. But it also adds other powerful features like
background processing. We expect to see some interesting applications
for this feature!”

New Features

The Troi Activator Plug-in 1.4 adds these new functions and features:

– The plug-in is compatible with FileMaker Pro 7.
– It is now possible to do Background Processing, for example with a
separate FileMaker Runtime application. A FileMaker Pro Client and a
Runtime can now run on the same computer and divide tasks!
– Send a remote event without a script being triggered. This allows
the sending of information, where the receiver retrieves it when he
wants to.
– Temporarily disable the triggering of scripts.
– (Windows) Increased the speed of triggering a script by about 60%.
– The example files are updated for better conversion to FileMaker Pro 7.
– Some bug fixes.

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
– process data in the background in a different FileMaker application
– 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
