No less than 83 functions and 39 script steps let you deal efficiently with any files or folders outside the database. You can select, create, delete, copy, move, rename, modify, zip and unzip files and folders, or check their integrity with a hash. Query detailed information of files and folders: the size on disk, creation and modification dates and more. Get title, subject, keywords, number of pages, author and more info from PDF files. You can mount and unmount remote disks on a server, list the contents of a folder including the contents of all its subfolders or search your disk for files or folders. Create deeply nested folders with ease: specify a path and the plug-in will create the folder, including all parent folders in the path that do not exist. Drag and drop files and folders on a FileMaker window or a drop zone. The paths of the dropped items will be handled by a triggered script, for example to put them in a container field.
We also added several functions that help you manage your images and movies: you can make thumbnails in all sizes, get metadata (IPTC, Exif, GPS, XMP) from images and write IPTC and Exif metadata into your image files. The plug-in comes with an extensive example file which combines some of the plug-in's functions to create a powerful Media Manager for images and movies.
Version 12.1 adds compatibility with macOS Big Sur. We added a new TrFile_GetFileKind function which returns a (localized) description of what kind of file this is. For example a .fmp12 file will return “FileMaker Document” and a .zip file will return “ZIP Archive”. Also new is the possibility to use a container (or a variable with container data) as the source parameter of the TrFile_GetFileHash function.The TrFile_SelectFileDialog function has a new “-AllowNonLocalCloudItems” switch. Adding this switch will allow you to select files that are not downloaded to the local disk.
