Troi Automatisering releases URL Plug-in for FileMaker Pro 8


Troi Automatisering releases URL Plug-in for FileMaker Pro 8

New cross plug-in runs native in FileMaker Pro 8 and lets you post
and retrieve information from the Internet.

August 29th, 2005, FileMaker DevCon, Phoenix Arizona–Troi
Automatisering today announced the availability of the 1.8b1 version
of the Troi URL Plug-in for FileMaker Pro 8.

What is Troi URL Plug-in?

Troi URL Plug-in can help you fill in forms on the Internet, all from
FileMaker Pro. It also retrieves data from any HTTP URL. You can:
* use the POST command to fill in a web form and retrieve the result
directly in FileMaker
* use the GET command to retrieve data
* use a secure connection (HTTPS) using SSL
* get access to password protected web pages
* encode text into HTTP format
* send cookies with a request
* show a custom progress dialog during the retrieval (Mac OS only)
* get JPEG images directly into a container field

Peter Baanen, company president, states: “We are very proud to
release our first plug-in for Filemaker Pro 8 on the same day as the
launch of Filemaker Pro 8 itself. It gives user running both
Filemaker Pro 8 and 7 much more possibilities”.

Suggested Uses

Troi URL plug-in allows you to:
* fill in forms on web sites or your intranet
* get online data like stock quotes, weather reports, etc.
* automatically add information to listings and online databases
* search the Internet for terms or other specific items (like in Sherlock)
* get the time of your city

All these features also work in a runtime solution.

What is new in version 1.8b1?

Troi URL Plug-in 1.8b1 is completely rewritten for FileMaker 7 and 8.
This release adds these new features:
* Converted to the new External Function API of FileMaker Pro 7.
* The plug-in functions now have a size limit of 1 Gb per parameter
(up from the total of 64000 character limit for all parameters in
FileMaker 6!)
* The function parameters now support Unicode characters (Some
dialogs only support ASCII at the moment.)
* you can get JPEG images directly into a container field

This plug-in opens new possibilities to get all sorts of data from
the Internet. We invite you to test drive the new functions and see
what you can do with it!
