Troi Dialog plug-in adds powerful dialog functions to FileMaker Pro. It allows you to give database users the precise feedback they need, because you can use any calculation to specify the text and the button labels of the dialogs. You can let a user input text through a dialog with up to fifteen fields, which can be simple text, password, popup list or check box fields. You can pre-enter text into all input fields and have the results of the dialog put into fields without parsing.
Apart from input dialogs you can show temporary flash screens, which are great for giving extra instructions to a user, without the user having to dismiss the dialog. Other dialog types are a progress bar for lengthy operations, a list dialog from which the user can choose an item and a big input dialog in which the user can type (or edit) long pieces of text. You can position your dialog boxes anywhere on the screen, add a standard icon or your own icons, in standard size or extra large, add a custom icon from a PNG image, including transparency, and you can set the text for the dialog title bar.
Troi Dialog Plug-in 11 adds a new switch “-AllowTallerDialogs” to the Dial_ Dialog function. With this switch the dialog will grow taller depending on the length of the prompt text. We added a “-MonospacedFont” switch to the Dial_InputDialog function: when you add this switch the input and popup fields will be shown in a monospaced (fixed-pitch) font. The same switch was added to the Show List Dialog script step and the Dial_ListDialog function.
