"As far as FMPro Script Diff, I'm using it to document changes I make to our large and complex system of FileMaker solutions. (130 + tables, hundreds of scripts, 10's of thousands fields) This allows me to return to a subsystem that I haven't worked on in months and see what I did the last time."

Description

FmPro Script Diff compares, edits, searches and stores FileMaker ScriptMaker scripts - outside the FileMaker database. Changed scripts are compared 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 script’s XML source can be manually edited or updated via the Search & Replace feature, and pasted back into FileMaker Pro.

A common requirement for regulatory compliance and industry certifications (including: Sarbanes-Oxley [aka: Sox, Sarbox], FDA 21 CFR Part 11, ISO 9000) is to maintain a verifiable audit trail for modifications made to IT systems. The unique line-by-line script comparison feature implemented by FmPro Script Diff enables companies to quickly document ScriptMaker changes between any two versions of a FileMaker database solution. Pressing the TAB key within the Diff screen enables an auditor to instantly advance through each of the changed script lines, potentially saving hours of work looking for these changes manually.

Script Comparison


Modified scripts are compared 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.

Analyze and Document Code Structure - Using Graphical Control Flow View


Use the graphical control flow feature to instantly see the structure of your code (or someone else's) at a glance. Even with deeply nested code like the example shown here, you can quickly understand the structure. These marked up scripts can easily be printed or copied onto the clipboard as RTF text for pasting into word processing documents. The RTF format preserves the bold, italic, underline and colorized error text of the script.

This feature can also be a time saver for authors writing books/articles who need to copy the formatted ScriptMaker script text into their publications.

It is no longer necessary to print your scripts and mark them up with a ruler, in order to understand and troubleshoot the program flow.

Search & Replace Text, Variables and Fieldnames


Search & Replace can be performed on variable names, Tablename::Fieldnames, Table Occurrences and text strings throughout an entire group of scripts. Updated scripts can then be pasted directly into FileMaker Pro. All script attributes including Script Name, Script ID and Include in Menu status are retained when transferring scripts via the clipboard.

No DDR Required - Instantly Copy/Paste Scripts Using Clipboard


Transferring scripts between FileMaker Pro and FmPro Script Diff is done 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.

  Copy & Paste Scripts via Clipboard
   

Scripts can be pasted back into FileMaker Pro either as whole scripts or individual script steps. This flexibility allows developers to resolve object dependencies by pasting modified script steps into existing scripts within the ScriptMaker window.

Selected scripts can also be copied as RTF formatted text or printed for project documentation.


.

Script Editing


The Script XML field allows developers to browse and modify the XML definition for any ScriptMaker script. Changes are automatically saved to the embedded SQLite database when clicking outside the Script XML field. The XML is re-parsed into human-readable text and checked for errors.

Every parameter of a script (including Script ID, Script Name etc) and each individual script step can be modified by editing the script XML definition. Scripts can also be generated by external tools and pasted into the Script XML field, for pasting back into FileMaker Pro.
