Troi URL Plug-in 2.6 for FileMaker Pro 11

Troi Automatisering releases URL Plug-in 2.6 for FileMaker Pro 11.

New plug-in for FileMaker Pro 11 lets you send tweets to Twitter with ease.

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 or images from web sites.
You can:

  • Use the POST command to fill in a web form and retrieve the result directly in FileMaker Pro
  • 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
  • Get JPEG, PNG and GIF images directly into a container field
  • Send cookies with a request
  • Send your request through a proxy server, even if the proxy server requires a username and password

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
  • Collect images from web sites

All these features also work in a runtime solution.
What’s New in Version 2.6?

Troi URL Plug-in 2.6 adds three new authorization functions, which make it very easy to work with a Twitter account and post tweets! We have included an example to get you tweeting in no time!

This update also adds several other improvements:

  • Added new TURL_HMACSHA1 function, which calculates a keyed-hash message authentication code (HMAC-SHA1) signature.
  • Added new TURL_ToURLEncoded function, which URL encodes text (also known as percent-encoding).
  • Added switch “-UpperCaseHex” to the TURL_ToHTTP function, which will make the encoded string contain only uppercase hexadecimals.
  • Added “-DontTryWithUserPassword” switch to the TURL_Get and TURL_Post functions. With this switch the plug-in will never try to send a username and password.
  • (Windows) Fixed a problem in the TURL_Get and TURL_Post functions, where the switch -TimeoutTicks=xxx would not set the correct timeout time.
  • Improved code in several places, improved the user guide, example files and fixed several smaller bugs.

This plug-in allows you to easily get data from web servers on the Internet or send information to them. We invite you to test drive the new functions and see what you can do with it!
