      Any Handy Utilities ?

      Post

      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.
