Here is a utility file I made called Variable View for my own use but it may be of value to others as well. This utility will inventory all the fileglobal, windowglobal, permanent and global variables as well as the fields of all open databases and it allows you to get their current values. The file list is updated as files are opened and closed and automatically refreshed when bringing the Variable View file to the front. You can choose to list any of the variable types including fields or any combination of them for inclusion in the list. There is an option to sort the list as well as the ability to search the variable list. Selecting any item from the list will display the current value in the column next to it. Clicking on any database name in the All Open Files list will bring that database to the front. You can also limit the displayed variables to any one database or show all open databases. If open, you can include the variables from the Panorama Help file as well. Here is a screen shot of Variable View in action:
I have not included an option to change an existing variable’s value since users would have the potential of causing unintended problems especially regarding some of the Panorama X built-in global and permanent variables which should not be altered manually. You, of course, are free to add this feature on your own if desired.
This file is free, open and fully commented. Get your copy of Variable View here:
Hope you find this utility useful in your own work as well
