24U Toolbox Plug-In answers the question "If I was to buy a single plug-in, which one should I get?"

Toolbox for Daily Use

To serve as a daily use toolbox, 24U Toolbox Plug-In provides the most popular functions usually available as one-purpose plug-ins, as well as some indispensable features for easier debugging and safer deployment of FileMaker solutions.

Primary Features:

  • Execute system scripts (Bash, Perl, PHP, Python, AppleScript, BAT, VisualBasic Script)
  • Execute SQL on the current database
  • Count and substitute text using Regular Expression patterns
  • Find out by calculation which special windows (Script Debugger, Data Viewer) are open

Features mainly (but not only) for FileMaker Pro 8 and 9:

  • Define custom shortcuts to lunch your scripts
  • Execute FileMaker script at specified time
  • Execute FileMaker script when leaving a field
  • Execute FileMaker script by its name from within calculation
  • Get/set default printer
  • Lock FileMaker windows to prevent switching context

Sample Use

Using one of the plug-in's functions, scripts can automatically decide not to display dialogs or perform specific actions when Script Debugger is open...
