      Script Trigger Searching

      Post

           I am in the process of reverse engineering a FileMaker Pro solution that someone else made.  The author did a good job of using scripts.  However, sometimes I need to know all the Triggers that are calling a specific trigger.  This can be a tedious exercise to find them all.

           Is anyone aware of any tricks or tools that can be used to easily search for all the triggers that call a script?

               Do you have Filemaker Advanced?

               If so, it can be helpful to do text searches for a script's name in the database design report.

               There are also third party tools that can take xml output from a database design report and tell you all kinds of interesting things about the design of the database so you may want to investigate those tools to learn more.
