Save time, FileMaker developers!
Search in all scripts, fields, tables, table relationships, or in multi-line text boxes and lists within
Scripts open as you search, showing matches.
Evaluate highlighted expressions in place instead of backtracking to Data Viewer.
Developer Assistant Advanced
to replace text in scripts and edit boxes, find all matches, and replace chosen matches.
Save time, money, and frustration.
HFP selects any printer, sets almost any printer option, prints, then restores old selected printer.
Save money by automating the use of double sided, toner saver, etc.
Prevent costly mistakes like printing all records instead of current record.
Make complex print jobs easy for new employees and automate those infrequent print jobs that employees often forget how to print.
Improve your interface with dropdown and pop-up menus.
Show type-ahead search results from multiple sources as dropdown menus.
Pop-up menus can have any number of sub-menus.
Make menu items bold, italic, underlined, bulleted, or add separator lines between items.
Easily turn groups of buttons on your FileMaker layouts into one simple pop-up menu.
Turn FileMaker "value lists", comma separated values, or almost any list into a menu.
Keyboard and Mouse
Do more with your mouse and keyboard.
Assign hotkeys to any or all layouts.
Simulate keyboard typing.
Hotkeys can run or continue scripts, set variables, or type any key combination.
Discover where the mouse was last clicked - now anything can be clickable, even in preview mode.
Change the mouse pointer - make it an hourglass while you're busy.
Run SQL commands to read or write FileMaker data without changing layouts or creating FileMaker table relationships.
Where scripts can't be called, such as in a field validation or auto-enter calculation, an SQL query can do things that would normally require a multiple-step script.
Use an SQL query in a calculated field to generate dynamic pop-up lists.
Create or destroy FileMaker tables from any calculation.
Use advanced, Perl-compatible "regular expressions" without installing anything but this plug-in.
Use regular expressions to check if an email address is valid, format digits into a phone number, capitalize the start of each sentence, and so on.
Cut a large block of text down into a small, unique "hash string".
Compare hash strings to quickly check if large blocks of text are identical or use hash strings to safely store passwords.
Do just about anything you want with text.
Retrieve something you've copied to the clipboard and store it in a database for easy searching and organization.
Retrieve FileMaker scripts, layout objects, HTML pages, Word documents, and tons of other clipboard formats.
Put anything previously retrieved back on the clipboard, then paste it wherever you originally copied it from.
Search and replace in FileMaker script steps you've copied, then paste the altered script steps back into your FileMaker script.
Use Super Variables in FileMaker 7 that work as native variables in FileMaker 8 and later.
Get and set variables with global, database, window, or script scope.
Easily access named variables passed in a FileMaker script parameter.
Run a script from any calculation.
Schedule scripts to run at a certain time.
Money and Numbers
Format and add padding to numbers.
Change numeric currency values into English words.
