FmPro Script Diff 1.61 Updated With FileMaker Pro 12 Compatibility

June 19, 2012 in FileMaker (E)

[] Fremont, California - .com Solutions Inc. today is pleased to announce the release of their updated FmPro Script Diff 1.61, supporting FileMaker Pro 12. FmPro Script Diff 1.61 is a maintenance release adding compatibility with FileMaker 12 and scripts within groups (script folders). This release includes support for new and updated FileMaker 12 Script Steps copied via the ClipBoard. FileMaker 12 Scripts are detected automatically when they are discovered on the ClipBoard, and are processed accordingly.

FileMaker Pro scripts are now read from the clipboard recursively, regardless of how many levels deep they may be stored within script folders in the Manage Scripts window.

Transferring scripts between FileMaker Pro 12 and FmPro Script Diff is accomplished by copying & pasting the scripts 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 ScriptMaker 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's control flow view includes support for IF/ELSE/END IF/LOOP/END LOOP statements, graphically showing the statements included within each control flow structure. FileMaker Pro developers can use the graphical control flow feature to instantly see the structure of their code (or someone else's) at a glance. Even with deeply nested code, they can quickly understand the structure. ScriptMaker scripts can be printed or copied onto the clipboard with a single mouse click for pasting into word processing documents. The RTF formatted text placed onto the clipboard preserves the bold, italic, underline and colorized text of each script.

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.
