Any Handy Utilities ?
Are there any handy utilities that can be installed for Filemaker
Pro 11 Advanced for editing and for keeping track of parameters
and data flow, etc. It would be very handy to do the following:
In Edit Mode: To be able to do a search on a
specific parameter such as a
variable, to see where all it is
used in the program or function.
Also to find out how many Open
or Close commands, are in
the program or function or to see
all the Perform Script calls, etc.
For the whole database: To be able to track down
where a script parameter value such
as "skip" is used when calling a particular
program or function. Also, to be able
to create a tree diagram that shows which
programs or functions are called by other
programs or functions.
Large programs get so complicated that they are hard to manage.
Thanks for your help. Sincerely, CountryBoy1
Take a look at the Database Design Report in FileMaker advanced. You can produce the report on your database, open it in a web browser and do a text search to find specific text such as "skip".
There are also third party developer tools available if you want to check them out via a web search.
