Those commands will remove unreferenced objects and recompress the repository. For me that worked great and for example a 4 GB repository shrunk down to 600 MB. That saves a lot of disk space here. Try at your own risk. Remote repositories may need extra work to upload the new state.
Just to remind everyone. If you have an older license and you missed to update it for 3 years, you are no longer eligible to order an update for the license. You can of course order a new license at any time.
So today we emailed people from 2013 to remind them to update before the end of 2015.
The key idea is that we offer discounted license prices for renewing licenses to honor you staying up to date.
Thank you for supporting Monkeybread Software.
Nickenich, Germany - (November 24th, 2015) -- MonkeyBread Software today is pleased to announce MBS FileMaker Plugin 5.4 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 5.4 has been updated and now includes over 3400 different functions, and the versatile plugin has gained more new functions:
Do you use a Mac? We have a few additions for FileMaker. For the script editor we have a search field to find text in the current script. The matching lines will be highlighted in yellow. For the relationship graph our plugin adds a new search field. Enter some text, press return and FileMaker navigates to the next matching table occurence. Using a popup menu you can jump directly to a table occurence or reduce the list by entering some text.
For OS X we have a few new functions including File system events to monitor directories for changes. The plugin triggers a script if something changes in a folder. You can monitor subfolders and even get file change events.
If you need to sign text or data and later verify whether the signature is valid, you can now use our elliptic curve signature functions. You generate a private and public key. With the private key you can sign a piece of data. Someone else can now verify the data integrity by checking the signature with the public key.
As you may know we have a XML import feature to import XML files. The plugin creates required tables, fields and imports the data. We added new functions to do the same with JSON data. And our new work functions would allow the importing part to even run on a FileMaker server.
With new search functions for the Mac Addressbook you can easier find people or companies. Auditing can now ignore summary fields and the PrivilegeSetName field works better. Hotkeys got improved so you can limit them to FileMaker instead of system wide. With DynaPDF Pro you can now print a PDF on Windows directly. Our email parser got a few new functions, e.g. to save an imported email without attachments. Finally we have improvements for CURL, AVAsset, PDFKit, Menubar, SerialPort, Text and Window functions.
The people at denkform.de are hosting a training for our MBS Filemaker Plugin. So if you want to spend a day with us learning about our plugin, please join us.
We make a guided tour and show you a couple of highlights and examples. Talk about what you can do and how you do some things. Later we will implement a couple of things in sample databases like the Audit function. Also download and upload with CURL is a good topic. We will look into the webviewer extensions and fill a sample form. Next we will do some image editing and writing a report into a Excel file.
Finally we have plenty of time for questions.
This event is in German (english event is also possible).
We meet 3rd December 2015 at 9:30 am in Denkform office. Cost is 99 Euro (incl. VAT) and you can buy a license with 50 Euro discount.
You can register on the denkform website. After the event, there is the regular meeting which everyone can join for free and have dinner with us.
Dates for 2016: 3rd March 2016 and 3rd November 2016.
Das MBS Plugin ist vermutlich das umfangreichste Plug-in welches für FileMaker verfügbar ist. FileMaker Entwickler verfügen damit über mehr als 3100 zusätzliche Funktionen um ihre FileMaker Lösungen zu erstellen. Jede Funktion führt eine kleine Aufgabe aus, zusammen kann das volle Potential des Plug-ins ausgeschöpft werden.
To know if the MBS Plugin is installed on a computer, you can call a plugin function. If the function causes an evaluation error, the plugin is missing:
Set Variable [$r; Value: Evaluate("MBS(\"Version\")") ] If [GetAsText($r) = "?"] Show Custom Dialog ["MBS Plugin not installed"] Else Show Custom Dialog ["MBS Plugin installed in version: " & $r] End If
Sometimes it may be good to test on solution startup and ask user to install plugin if it is missing.
Or to use the script step to install plugin.
We use evaluate in the example above as you can code this without actually having the plugin. So FileMaker will not show a missing function in editor.
