Nickenich, Germany - (February 24th, 2015) -- MonkeyBread Software today is pleased to announce MBS FileMaker Plugin 5.0 for Mac OS X or Windows, the latest update to their product that is easily the most powerful plugin currently available for FileMaker Pro. As the leading database management solution for Windows, Mac, and the web, the FileMaker Pro Integrated Development Environment supports a plugin architecture that can easily extend the feature set of the application. MBS FileMaker Plugin 5.0 has been updated and now includes over 3000 different functions, and the versatile plugin has gained more new functions:
For our Mac users we have now hot keys. You can define a key combination to launch a FileMaker script, even if FileMaker is not the active application. Our MountNotification functions allow you to run a script when a drive mounts or unmounts.
The MBS Plugin now helps finding errors in scripts. If you call the MBS function with an unknown function name, the error message now includes a suggestion for the right function name. We hope this helps finding typos. If a script runs and a function returns an error, the plugin will show a notification. This way you don't miss an error in your scripts. Please enable this feature for development using Trace.EnableErrorNotifications.
For DynaPDF we have new functions to create, modify and delete annotations. You can now create much easier preview images for pages and render whole PDF files to a folder of images. New functions allow to place text as watermark across a page.
Our functions for menus allow you to query the current FileMaker menu. Using our plugin you can execute menu commands from a script, hide or change the shortcut. For the menu command to create a database design report, we got a function to create a report automatically from a script.
The barcode functions can now calculate checksums for EAN and ISBN. The function Files.DiskInfo queries the size of a drive and the free space. We improved the TAPI functions for Windows to make and receive phone calls.
For webviewer we got a few new functions to query selected text, formatted text and the favorite icon. You can control the scrollbars and manage cookies. Finally we got a new example showing how to use a SVG drawing tool in FileMaker.
We updated a couple of libraries: DynaPDF updated to version 220.127.116.11, LibXL to 3.6.1, CURL to 7.39.0, GraphicsMagick to 1.3.20, libJPEG to 9.1, libPNG to 1.6.14, OpenSSL to 1.0.1j and PCRE to 8.36.
