Main iOS differences

Complete syntax and functionality of the plug-in functions

SDialog_Version( { versionFormat } )

Returns version string of the active 24U SimpleDialog Plug-In, formatted as requested by the parameter.

Parameters

versionFormatDefines the format of the returned version.

Parameter values for versionFormat

"short"To get just the version number. Default value.
"long"To get the plug-in name followed by its version number.
"platform"To get the platform of the code currently running on.
"autoupdate"To get autoupdate compatible (comparable) version number.
"bit"To get bit version of plugin.

Description

This function is very important and it has the same output format in all 24U Plug-Ins. You should call this function every time you need to check if the plug-in is properly installed to the FileMaker® Pro. Even if the plug-in is not registered (or badly registered) this function should work. Calling this function in the startup script of your solution is recommended.

Result

Returns requested version format or platform. If this function returns "?", the plug-in is not properly installed or FileMaker Pro cannot load and activate it for some reason.

Examples

SDialog_Version( "long" )
This will return the plug-in name and its version. For example "24U SimpleDialog Plug-In 6.0".

SDialog_Version( "platform" )
Returns "Mac OS X", "iOS" or "Windows" depending on the platform the plug-in is currently running.

SDialog_Version( "autoupdate" )
Returns "05040300" for the plug-in version 5.4.3. The last two digits represent the build number. In this case it means build 00 (first build) of version 5.4.3.

SDialog_Register( selector )

Provides special functionality to operate with plugin serial numbers.

Parameter values for selector

SerialNumberRegister given SerialNumber and return an error code.
EmailAddressTries to activate with given email address and return an error code. Not supported in iOS version and will return error -4 Not implemented.
"Registration window"Show the "Registration window" and return 0. Not supported in iOS version and will return error -4 Not implemented.
"About window"Show the "About window" and return 0. Not supported in iOS version and will return error -4 Not implemented.
"Status"Return the actual registration state of the plugin: Demo, Demo expired, Trial, Trial Expired, Registered or Dead.
It may return different values in client solutions and server side scripts, depending on the types of licenses the product is registered with.
iOS version returns only one of two states: "Registered" or "Unregistered".
"Unregister"Unregister all serial numbers related to the product and return an error code.

Description

Use this function to register or unregister 24U SimpleDialog Plug-In, to get information about current registration state, or to invoke GUI providing basic registration information and purchase capabilities.

Result

Returns zero or error code depending on the selector.

Examples

SDialog_Register( "SDI60I-BXMWC-VNW7W-L8AJS-3KGX3-VWG84" )
This function will register the iOS plug-in with serial number SDI60I-BXMWC-VNW7W-L8AJS-3KGX3-VWG84.

SDialog_Register( "SDI60C-BXMW-VNW7-L8AJ-3KGX-VWG8" )
This function will register the plug-in with client serial number SDI60C-BXMW-VNW7-L8AJ-3KGX-VWG8 for 16 users.

SDialog_Register( "user@mail.com" )
In case you do not have a serial number but you want to try the plug-in out, use the string with your email address as selector.

SDialog_Register( "unregister" )
This function will unregister every serial number related to 24U SimpleDialog Plug-In.

SDialog_Register( "About window" )
Similar to opening FileMaker Pro preferences, navigating to the Plug-Ins tab and double-clicking on 24U SimpleDialog Plug-In.

Note: All serial numbers here are only for demonstration purposes. They will not work in the plug-in.

SDialog_InputDialog( dialogPrompt { ; dialogButtons { ; dialogItems... } } )

Generates and shows custom dialog.

Note: Styles for buttons, labels etc. are not supported in iOS version and those styles will be ignored.

Parameters

dialogPromptText to be displayed as dialog prompt. The prompt is partially style sensitive: text color, size and face (not font) will be used in the dialog.
dialogButtonsThe names of dialog buttons, right to left, separated by "¶". If this parameter is omitted dialog will have no buttons. The default value is "" empty string which has special meaning: generate buttons OK and Cancel.
dialogItemsDescription of each dialog field. The syntax is: dialogItems = itemOptions { { ; valueIDs } ; valueList } ; currentValue. See next table to learn how to construct fields.

Parts of dialogItems

itemOptionsItemOption consists of itemKind, itemName and moreOptions parameters. All parameters are delimited by "¶". See next table for detailed description.
valueIDsValue list (delimited by "¶") containing IDs for menu or list.
valueListValue list (delimited by "¶") containing values for menu or list.
currentValueDefault value for the field.

Parts of itemOptions

itemKindThe kind of field. The list of field kinds is in the next table.
itemNameThe name of the item. Usually it is a text title on the left of the field, on the right of the checkbox or radio.
moreOptionsSome special options. The format is always optionName=optionValue. See the last table to learn which options can be used in conjunction with which field.

Possible values for itemKind. This means: supported field types.

"text"One line edit box. Use currentValue parameter to specify initial value.
"password"One line edit box which hides characters you are typing. Use currentValue parameter to specify initial value.
"radio"One radio button. CurrentValue 1 will set it, 0 will unset it. Radio has a global scope for whole dialog.
"checkbox"One checkbox. CurrentValue 1 will set it, 0 will unset it. On Mac, CurrentValue 2 will set it to the mixed state.
"menu"Dialog pop-up menu. Use parameters valueList and valueIDs to set its contents. CurentValue can be text or number. Number specifies which line of valueList should be the default. 0 or 1 means the first line, 2 is the second line and so on. If you place text to the currentValue, it will either select line from valueList with the same string or it sets initial text of the menu which will disappear when you select the menu. If you define single "-" on one line inside ValueList parameter, the plug-in will draw a separator line between menu lines. This separator line has no index. You can add or remove any number of separator lines and index number in CurrentValue parameter will point to the same line. Separators are not paired with ValueIDs.
"list"Dialog selection list. Use parameters valueList and valueIDs to set its contents. CurentValue can only be a number that specifies which line of valueList should be the default. 0 or 1 means the first line, 2 is the second line and so on.
"textarea"Multi-line edit box. Similar to text but the field can contain multiple lines and pressing enter while you are in textarea will not cause pressing default button. Tab key inserts tab character and it does not shift focus to the next field.
"caption"Static text label. Use currentValue parameter to fill its contents. The caption is partially style sensitive: it reads text color, size and face (not font) from FileMaker Pro text.
"separator"Static line which divides parts of dialog. Do not use currentValue parameter.
"image"Image which should be placed to the dialog. The currentValue parameter should contain a container with image.
"link"The parameter itemName should contain URL and currentValue text description of the link. The link will be shown on the dialog with blue color.

Possible values for moreOptions.

validation=NONEDo not validate the field contents. This is the default value.
validation=CREDIT_CARDCheck if text field contains credit card number. If validation fails dialog will not be closed by the default button.
validation=SSNCheck if text field contains social security number. If validation fails dialog will not be closed by the default button.
validation=SINCheck if text field contains social insurance number. If validation fails dialog will not be closed by the default button.
validation=CZECH_IDCheck if text field contains Czech ID number. If validation fails dialog will not be closed by the default button
validation=REGEXPValidate field content against regular expression. Write regular expression to the next line. If validation fails dialog will not be closed by the default button.
validation=FILEMAKERValidate field content against FileMaker Pro calculation. To get the field content inside the calculation use "x" (see example). If calculation returns non-zero number it pass if it returns 0 it failed. If it returns text it will be shown inside small message box dialog.
lines=<number>For 'TextArea': the number of lines available. TextArea must have at least 4 lines. For 'List': a maximum number of lines shown.
minlines=<number>For 'List' it is a minimum number of lines to be shown.
Following table shows how many lines of list are shown on dialog based on values of "lines", "minlines" and actual count of items in list:
Condition Number of shown lines
"minlines" < "lines" < actual count of items in list "lines"
"lines" < "minlines" < actual count of items in list "lines"
"lines" < actual count of items in list < "minlines" "minlines"
focus=1Put initial focus to this field.

Description

This is the main function of 24U SimpleDialog Plug-In. Various types of dialogs can be created by this function. From simple ones similar to FileMaker Pro built in function to very complex, form-like dialogs with pictures. Dialog content is initially set by this function parameters and can be modified while the dialog is opened by function SetCalculation. The validation option can be used for all fields except caption, separator, image.

All dialog fields will mimic the text style from the FileMaker Pro. If you want to change text size, color, font or style just change it inside your FileMaker Pro solution or use text formatting functions from FileMaker Pro calculation engine. The plug-in is not able to mimic the style of each character. The style of the first character is applied on whole dialog part: On whole caption, title, button etc...

Compatibility warning for menu indexing

24U SimpleDialog Plug-In 3.x used incompatible indexing for field "menu". Menu indexing has been 0-based (0 first line, 1 second line...) in version 3.x. This has been changed in version 4.0 to 1-based indexing (1 first line, 2 second line...). Solutions which used 0-based indexing must be changed to 1-based indexing. The only compatible number is 0 - it means the first line in both cases.
In 3.x the menu also supported line separators (character "-" placed alone in single line) but separators had indexes. This also changed in 4.0 - separators no longer have indexes and it can be freely added or removed without breaking CurrentValue meaning.

Result

Function shows the dialog if parameters are correct and when the dialog is closed it returns 0. Otherwise it does not show dialog and it returns status code. See status code list at the end of this file.

Known limitations

This is list of known limitations for this function:

SDialog_SetCalculation( updateType ; updateIndex ; eventType { ; eventIndex } ; calculation )

Set calculation which updates dialog contents while the dialog is on screen.

Note: SDialog_SetCalculation is not supported in iOS version.

Parameters

updateTypeType of element to be updated by this calculation.
updateIndexButton or field index starting from 1.
eventTypeType of the event (when the field should be updated).
eventIndexThe index of field which should be monitored for the event. If omitted all fields are monitored for the event.
calculationCalculation which return the updated value.

Possible values for updateType.

"value"Calculation returns new text value for the field.
"title"Calculation returns new text value for the field title.
"valueList"Calculation returns new text value list for the field valueList.
"valueIDs"Calculation returns new text value list for the field valueIDs.
"button"Calculation returns new text title for the button.

Possible values for eventType.

"onFieldModify"Calculation is triggered when some field changes.
"onFieldEnter"Calculation is triggered when some field obtains focus.
"onTimer"Calculation is triggered periodically. Period can be set by SDialog_Set. No field is monitored for a change so parameter eventIndex has no meaning.

Description

The calculation parameter contains standard FileMaker Pro calculation in the text form. The plug-in calls this calculation using Let function with "$fields[]" parameter set to the value of each field and "$buttons[]" set to the titles of all buttons. The calculation also gets variable $currentFieldIndex which points to the field which caused the event. The calculation should return text or number so the plug-in can read it.

Result

Function returns 0 if the calculation has been scheduled. In the case of error the function will return negative status code.

Known limitations

This is list of known limitations for this function:

Examples

Note: Function SDialog_SetCalculation works together with SDialog_InputDialog. These examples shows several simple combinations.

SDialog_Set("dialog-min_width" ; 300) & "¶" &
SDialog_SetCalculation( "button" ; 1 ; "onFieldModify" ; "Case( Exact( $fields[1] ; $fields[2]) ; \"OK\" ; TextStyleAdd( \"Don't match\" ; Strikethrough ) )" ) & "¶" &
SDialog_InputDialog( "Insert new password..." ; TextStyleAdd( "Don't match" ; Strikethrough ) & "¶Cancel" ; "password¶Insert Password:" ; "" ; "password¶Confirm Password:" ; "" )

This creates the dialog with two password fields. The calculation is called each time one of fields changes. The calculation checks if fields are exactly the same and it modifies the state of the button according to it.

SDialog_SetCalculation( "value" ; 2 ; "onFieldModify" ; 1 ; "Case( GetAsNumber( $fields[1] ) > 10 ; \"Value too high\" ; GetAsNumber( $fields[1] ) >= 5 ; \"Value ok\" ; \"Value too low\" )" ) & "¶" &
SDialog_InputDialog("Insert value from 5 to 10..." ; "" ; "text¶" ; "" ; "caption¶" ; "Value information" )

The calculation checks the value of the field and informs user if she inserted a correct value or not.

SDialog_SetCalculation( "value" ; 1 ; "onFieldEnter" ; "Case( $currentFieldIndex = 1 ; \"Insert your name\" ; $currentFieldIndex = 2 ; \"Insert your surname\" ; \"Insert your name\" )" ) & "¶" &
SDialog_InputDialog("" ; "" ; "caption¶" ; "Insert your initials" ; "text¶" ; "" ; "text¶" ; "" )

The calculation checks which field has focus and it changes the text in the caption field.
