Use of TAPI functions in MBS FileMaker Plugin


Last week a client had to implement MBS FileMaker Plugin functions for TAPI (Windows Telephone API) and got some instructions for us:

How to connect a phone system (Mitel MiVoice400) with MBS Plugin to call a phone number with an Astra phone in Windows. With free phoner app, we can list all devices for TAPI including their address name. In the follow picture, you see that "Hanspeter (MiVoice5370)" is the required one.



In your FileMaker script you call MBS( "TAPI.Initialize" ) first to initialize the TAPI functions on startup of your solution. Later you call MBS( "TAPI.AddressCount" ) to query the number of addresses for the computer. For the client's PC, we get back 6 as the count. That is the same as in phoner app above. Now you can step over the connections from 0 to 5 to query name for each. With the call MBS( "TAPI.AddressValue"; 5 ; "AddressName" ) we get back the address name "Hanspeter (MiVoice5370)".

Next we create a call and for this we need two commands:

$call = MBS( "TAPI.CreateCall"; $AddressName ; "0“ & $PhoneNumber ; 1 ; 8).
MBS( "TAPI.Connect"; $call ; 1 )

As the phone system needs prefix 0 for calling outside, we add a "0" as prefix to the phone number. Media type for an audio call is 8 and 1 is passed for address type to be an phone number. For the connect call to actually start the call, we pass 1 for synchronous mode, which seems to work well for this phone system.

In general the TAPI functions work well for all customers and getting the address name and right ID configured can be a challenge.

For Xojo, you can use our MBS Xojo Win Plugin and the TAPIMBS class.

ROWID in FileMaker SQL Commands


Did you know ROWID keyword?

It's the name for a special keyword in SQL for FileMaker to reference the column with the record ID. So a query for ROWID in SQL looks like this and gives back all record IDs of the table:

MBS("FM.ExecuteFileSQL"; ""; "SELECT ROWID FROM MyTable")

This is the same number given by Get(RecordID) for each record. Same you can load ROWID based on the given ID:

MBS("FM.ExecuteFileSQL"; ""; "SELECT ROWID FROM MyTable WHERE \"MyID\" = ?"; 9; 13; $MyID)

This returns record ID based on the value $MyID in the MyID field.

Once you know a row ID, you can also find the same record in SQL:

MBS("FM.ExecuteFileSQL"; ""; "SELECT * FROM MyTable WHERE ROWID = ?"; 9; 13; $RecordID)

The great thing with ROWID is that you can use it as ID column in SQL functions, which work independent of the actual ID column the table may have. With Min() and Max() functions you can query the range of record IDs in the table:

MBS("FM.ExecuteFileSQL"; ""; "SELECT MIN(ROWID) FROM \"MyTable\"")
and
MBS("FM.ExecuteFileSQL"; ""; "SELECT MAX(ROWID) FROM \"MyTable\"")

Once you know the range, you can make queries to get chunks of records by ROWID selection:

MBS("FM.ExecuteFileSQL"; ""; "SELECT * FROM \"MyTable\" WHERE ROWID BETWEEN 5 AND 10 ")

This returns up to six records with ROWIDs from 5 to 10.

Ask for permissions to control applications with AppleScript in FileMaker


MacOS 10.14 Mojave tightens control on applications who wish to control other applications via Apple Script or Apple Events. So you may need to use our new Applescript.DeterminePermissionToAutomateTarget function in MBS FileMaker Plugin to ask for permissions.



The user can decide whether they allow or block access for your application. The dialog comes only once and if you need, the user can do the checkbox later in the privacy settings. Or reset the settings via Terminal with "tccutil reset AppleEvents" command for all applications.

New function will be available in 8.4pr4 in the next days. If you need it today, just email us.

PS: You can do the same in Xojo with our NSAppleScriptMBS.DeterminePermissionToAutomateTarget function.

PPS: You may also need for runtimes to add entitlement in code signing with com.apple.security.automation.apple-events item. Plugin and app must be signed by same team ID.

Three weeks till year's end


The year 2018 will end in less than three weeks. Do you need some more licenses?
  • You can order licenses, which end in 2019 or later and have delivery plus payment done in 2018.
  • And of course you can order updates for several years in advance for all your MBS products.
  • As all licenses are per developer, you should check if you got a new developer in your team this year and adjust licenses to match team size.
  • If you need a Xojo license (new or update), we can always check whether a bundle with Xojo offers an advantage for you.
  • For FileMaker please check if you have enough license for the number of seats or servers you have in use.
Especially if you run on a budget and you want to spend some money in the old year, you can buy updates for several years in advance.

FileMaker based iOS App to the App Store


Wether you target the public iOS App Store or only the ones for business or education, your iOS app needs to go through Apple's review. The automatic tests are also needed for use of Testflight. In general the FileMaker iOS SDK made apps can go through this process.

You can use plugins in your iOS app, but the automatic tests started to complain about the plugins earlier this year. Apple's tests don't recognized the .fmplugin file name extensions for plugins, so the files are not allowed to be in the plug-ins folder inside the app. Moving the plugin file to Frameworks folder caused the complain about missing .framework file extensions. Naming the plugin file with .framework fixes the complain, but FileMaker engine didn't load it, until yesterday. The new version 17.0.4 of the SDK changed the behavior and now the plugin loads from frameworks folder!



To add the plugin, follow this steps:
* Create a new folder in Finder and name it Frameworks.
* Add the MBS Plugin framework file for device or simulator there.
* Drag & Drop the folder to the Xcode project into the files list on the left.
* Choose folder reference in the dialog.
* Build your app.

The plugin does not need to be linked to the app, just be in the right folder. When you run the project, the framework gets copied into the app and you should see it as on the screenshot above.

For the app store make sure, you use the arm64 version (device folder) of the plugin. Please make sure you have the privacy strings, an provision profile for your app and enabled push notifications. Once everything is set, you can upload the app and get it though the automatic checks.



Kudos to FileMaker Inc. for listening and helping us to get the plugin loading.
Once Apple changes the rules in the future, more changes may be required.

Please get new MBS FileMaker Plugin in version 8.6pr3 or newer from us. Get the updated FileMaker iOS SDK 17.0.4. You'll need a developer account with Apple and an iOS device for testing may be useful.

MBS FileMaker Plugin, version 8.6pr3

MBS FileMaker Plugin 8.5 - More than 5500 Functions In One Plugin


Nickenich, Germany - (November 27th, 2018) -- MonkeyBread Software today is pleased to announce MBS FileMaker Plugin 8.5 for macOS, iOS, Linux and 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, macOS, iOS 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 8.5 has been updated and now includes over 5500 different functions, and the versatile plugin has gained more new functions:

Our SSH functions got a new tunnel feature. Beside file transfers over SSH (SFTP), running remote shell commands on another computer via SSH, we now finally got a tunnel feature. You can tunnel for example a MySQL database connection through the SSH tunnel to reach a database server in the data center, which is not available directly via the internet.

New smartcard functions for APDU protocol allow you to read data from various smart cards. This includes reading swiss health insurance cards, belgian identity cards and many more.

Our new Text.MergeFields function can merge field values, variables and evaluate expressions to fill values into a text.

For MacOS we got a new function to remember column widths in the dialog for custom functions. Our preferences dialog got new checkmarks to enable/disable this feature. File dialogs for MacOS can now operate as sheets with script trigger when done to process files selected. For all lists shown in FileMaker, you can click on them to set focus, press command-option-C to copy the content of the table. With Command-+ or - you can zoom in the lists, which is great for presentations.

To better track errors returned by MBS plugin calls, you can use our Plugin.SetErrorScriptTrigger function. When a plugin function returns an error, we will schedule a script trigger to report the error with a JSON object. The JSON contains details like script name, MBS call with parameters, result and some more details.

A couple of functions got ported for more platforms. The Windows.Scrollbar functions now work for MacOS, iOS and Windows. The WebView.Screenshot and Window.Screenshot got ported to iOS. We implemented Files.GetNodeID and Files.GetPathFromNodeID for WIndows. And with WebView.Scrollbar functions you can scroll a web viewer in FileMaker 16 with MacOS and iOS.

We updated the Amazon S3 example to do upload, download, delete and listing for files in the buckets. FTP file listings can now be returned as JSON to process easier. Webview.ClearBrowserSession function allows you to end browser session for Windows and clear session cookies.

As we now build the plugins with Xcode 10.1 for 64-bit and Xcode 9.4 for 32-bit, we moved the minimum MacOS version required up to MacOS 10.9.

Finally we upgraded CURL to version 7.62.0, DynaPDF to version 4.0.25.63, OpenSSL to version 1.1.1 for all targets, SQLite to version 3.25.2, SQLAPI library to version 4.2.4 beta 2, and zlib to version 1.2.11.

See release notes for a complete list of changes.

Neues MBS FileMaker Plugin 8.5 - Über 5500 Funktionen in einem Plugin


27. November 2018 - Monkeybread Software veröffentlicht heute das MBS Plugin für FileMaker in Version 8.5, mit inzwischen über 5500 Funktionen eines der größten FileMaker Plugins überhaupt. Hier einige der Neuerungen:

Unsere SSH Funktionen haben jetzt eine neue Tunnel Funktion. Neben Dateitransfers via SSH (SFTP) und dem Ausführen von Shell Befehlen auf einem entfernten Computer via SSH haben wir jetzt SSH Tunnels eingebaut. Sie können beispielsweise einen Tunnel aufbauen ins Rechenzentrum und eine MySQL Datenbankverbindung durch leiten, wenn der MySQL Server nicht direkt über das Internet erreichbar ist.

Neue SmartCard Funktionen für das APDU Protokol erlauben Ihnen Daten von verschiedenen SmartCards zu lesen. Das funktioniert unter anderem mit den Schweizer Krankenversicherungskarten und den Belgischen Personalausweisen.

Unsere neue Text.MergeFields Funktion kann Platzhalter im Text durch Werte ersetzen. Dabei können Sie Feldwerte, Variablen und sogar Formeln verwenden.

Für MacOS merkt sich das Plugin jetzt die Spaltenbreite für den Eigene Funktionen Dialog. Unser Voreinstellungsdialog hat für diese Möglichkeit und andere Funktionen neue Häkchen bekommen zum Ein- und Ausschalten. Dateidialoge können bei MacOS asynchron laufen und später ein Skript triggern mit dem Ergebnis. Für alle Listen in FileMaker selber bietet das Plugin die Möglichkeit den Inhalt mit Befehl-Alt-C in die Zwischenablage zu kopieren. Mit Befehl-+ oder - können Sie in den Listen die Ansicht vergrößern bzw. verkleinern, ideal für Präsentationen.

Mit der neuen Funktion Plugin.SetErrorScriptTrigger können Sie Fehler bei Pluginaufrufen leichter mitschreiben. Sollte ein Pluginaufruf einen Fehler melden, wird ein voreingestelltes Skript getriggert mit einem JSON Block an Informationen. Darunter dann der Name vom Skript, welche Funktion mit welchen Parametern aufgerufen wurde und welche Fehlermeldung zurück kam. So können Sie Fehler aufzeichnen mit Kontextinformationen.

Einige Funktionen sind jetzt auf anderen Platformen verfügbar. Die Windows.Scrollbar Funktion unterstützt nun MacOS, iOS und Windows. Die WebView.Screenshot und Window.Screenshot Funktionen unterstützen zusätzlich iOS. Die Funktionen Files.GetNodeID und Files.GetPathFromNodeID laufen jetzt bei Windows. Und die WebView.Scrollbar Funktion scrollt bei FileMaker 16 mit MacOS und iOS.

Das Amazon S3 Beispiel kann Dateien hoch- bzw. runter laden, löschen oder die Dateien auflisten. FTP Dateilisten gibt es jetzt als JSON Block zum Parsen. Die Webview.ClearBrowserSession Funktion erlaubt Ihnen eine Browser Session für Windows zu beenden und das löscht die Session Cookies.

Da wir nun die Plugins mit Xcode 10.1 für 64-bit und Xcode 9.4 für 32-bit bauen, haben wir die minimale MacOS Version auf 10.9 gesetzt.

Außerdem haben wir noch die CURL Bibliothek aktualisiert auf Version 7.62.0, DynaPDF auf Version 4.0.25.63, OpenSSL auf Version 1.1.1 für alle Platformen, SQLAPI library auf Version 4.2.4 beta 2, SQLite auf Version 3.25.2 und zlib auf Version 1.2.11.

Alle Änderungen in den Release Notes.

MBS FileMaker Plugin, version 8.5pr9


New in this prerelease of version 8.5 of the MBS FileMaker Plugin: Download at monkeybreadsoftware.de/filemaker/files/Prerelease/ or ask for being added to the dropbox shared folder.

MBS FileMaker Plugin, version 8.5pr8


New in this prerelease of version 8.5 of the MBS FileMaker Plugin:
  • Changed GraphicsMagick functions to pass file name from container to image when reading, so we can save again with same name in output container value.
  • Updated DynaPDF to version 4.0.25.63.
  • DynaPDF now uses FreeType library and dropped Mac 32-bit target. We still include latest 32-bit dynapdf library for your convenience, but that is now deprecated.
  • Improved ImageCapture.RequestSelectFunctionalUnit to better track which unit is selected and skip the request if the device is already selected.
  • Fixed bug in Font.CalculateTextWidth with loading font.
  • Changed GMImage.NewImagesFromFile to reject .PDF file as GraphicsMagick doesn't really read PDF files.
  • Added timeouts for ImageCapture functions so the plugin doesn't wait endless. 30s for opening session, 20s for closing, 30s to select unit, 60s to scan.
  • Changed ImageCapture.RequestSelectFunctionalUnit to return error directly if you request an unavailable functional unit.
Download at monkeybreadsoftware.de/filemaker/files/Prerelease/ or ask for being added to the dropbox shared folder.

Windows on ARM in 64-bit


With Visual Studio 15.9, Microsoft now supports ARM64 processor architecture as target for Windows software. So Windows now runs currently on 4 architectures: x86 for Intel 32-bit, x64 for Intel 64-bit, ARM in 32-bit and 64-bit. In history Windows NT also run on IA-64, MIPS, Alpha, PowerPC, PC-98 before, so they keep it quite cross platform viable.

Now the big question is whether Xojo Inc. and/or FileMaker Inc. will support the new architecture anytime soon. But if they would, we would of course try to build the plugins for the new platform.

See blog entry from Microsoft.

FileMaker Roadmap for 2019


Did you see the webinars for the roadmap and the updated website?
You can check it here: FileMaker Roadmap and the Video

To give a few comments for the questions I got immediately from a few FileMaker developers:

FileMaker Next

MBS Plugin 9.x will be available at launch next year when the next FileMaker version ships. We will use the new plugin SDK and make a few changes to get the plugin working well in the new version. To ensure the plugin works well, we'll test the beta version of FileMaker. If you see an issue, please report it soon to us.

As FileMaker will probably ship again in mid May, we may have our March release ready for the new version and fix any outstanding problems with our May release a week after FileMaker's release.

Code Signing

MBS Plugin is code signed for a few years now for MacOS and Windows. Occasionally there may have been a beta version without signature, but the release versions should all be signed.

File functions

The new data file functions are certainly welcome in the community, especially as you will be able to use them in FileMaker Go. Still the plugin provides an alternative for reading and writing files with more options and outside a script as the plugin can be used in all calculations.

JavaScript in Webviewer

As you know we have a function WebView.RunJavaScript function in our plugin. We are curious to learn what FileMaker plans for future versions to do similar things in FileMaker directly. This is certainly welcome for Web Direct, where our plugin can't provide that feature. For FileMaker Pro desktop on Windows we wonder if they switch away from Internet Explorer as engine (Webbrowser ActiveX control) and use something like embedded Chromium instead. Another curious thing is how FileMaker Inc. will provide an unified interface for both JavaScript to FileMaker and FileMaker to JavaScript. What we have, can be read in this blog article: FileMaker and WebViewer communication

FileMaker Cloud 2

The new version 2 of FileMaker Cloud may ship with or without plugin support. Not sure if a new plugin SDK will be ready for the release or whether existing plugins can be used there. Once we get a newer SDK, we'll look into how to make plugins there and see what will be possible.

While vs. FM.Loop function

It looks like the product idea for a loop function was welcome both to FMI and to us. We implemented in March 2018 our FM.Loop function. It allows you to have a loop in a calculation counting a variable up or down. The FileMaker version can do a bit more as you can include several commands directly in the function call with square brackets like in a Let function. The plugin interface doesn't allow us to do the same. But we do have a second expression to evaluate which lets you define an exit conditions independent of the counting up or down the variable. While MBS Plugin function returns a list of all the results from the various expression, in FileMaker you collect the values yourself and return them in the result expression. If needed

FileMaker Marketplace

We look forward to add our plugin to the marketplace and encourage our users to add solutions there, which use our plugin. Some clients have integrations ready using MBS Plugin, e.g. for receiving emails in FileMaker and showing them like a mail application.

Thanks FileMaker Inc. for their ongoing investments into FileMaker and the impressive features coming to the platform. Having modules as XML files ready to integrate in solutions with a market place to get them, will bring the platform to a new level. Imaging a world, where a consultant can build a solution for a client by combining several modules from Marketplace and have something ready to use within minutes.
