SAN FRANCISCO (MacWorld) - Jan. 5, 2009 - .com Solutions
Inc. Releases Updated FmPro Script Diff 1.38 With Support for FileMaker¨
FmPro Script Diff has been updated to support each of
the new script steps and calculation functions added to FileMaker Pro
10. FmPro Script Diff operates as an external script editor, enhancing
the built-in FileMaker Pro 10 Manage Scripts window.
The new FileMaker Pro 10 script steps supported by FmPro
Script Diff include:
Install OnTimer Script ["<script name>";
Open Edit Saved Finds
Set Field by Name [<calculated target field>; <calculated value>]
All calculation formulas are supported by FmPro Script
Diff, including the new FileMaker Pro 10 calculation functions:
FmPro Script Diff enhances the functionality of the FileMaker
Pro 10 Manage Scripts window by adding the following features:
Search & Replace of text, Tablename::Fieldnames
and global/local variable names within any number of scripts.
Pressing the TAB key in find mode, instantly advances the cursor
to the next occurrence of the found text, displayed with yellow highlighting.
Display of script control flow, graphically showing the statements
included within each IF/ELSE/END IF/LOOP/END LOOP control flow structure.
It is no longer ncecessary to print and mark up scripts with a ruler
in order to see the control flow.
A single mouse click puts stylized script text
onto the clipboard in RTF format, retaining the formatting and colorization
when pasting scripts into other applications.
Changed scripts are compared by FmPro Script Diff on a line-by-line
basis and displayed with color coded tags to the left of each modified
line. Interline changes are also highlighted to indicate Changed, Added
or Deleted text. Each scripts XML source can be manually edited
or updated via the Search & Replace feature, and pasted back into
FileMaker Pro 10.
Transferring scripts between FileMaker Pro 10 and FmPro
Script Diff is accomplished by copying & pasting whole scripts or
individual script steps via the clipboard. No DDR Export is required.
The XML code representing each script is parsed, converted to human-readable
text and checked for errors. Each script is stored in an embedded database
within FmPro Script Diff. Selected scripts can then be copied back onto
the clipboard as XML for pasting back into FileMaker Pro.
FmPro Script Diff improves productivity by helping FileMaker developers
answer questions such as:
What changes have been made to this script?
Which scripts have been changed between two database revisions?
Which scripts were modified on a particular day?
Which scripts were modified by a specific developer?
Where is this global variable modified within each script of my solution?
Is this field used by any script in my solution (before I delete, modify
or reuse it)?
How can I find and change a text string, variable, fieldname or table
occurrence within dozens or even hundreds of scripts?
FmPro Script Diff is priced at ($100) per developer and
includes a copy of FmPro Script Diff for both Mac OS X (Universal Binary)
and Windows platforms. Existing FmPro Script Diff customers may upgrade
to FmPro Script Diff 1.38 at no charge.
