Find a script amongst cards and objects

Post by jalz » Tue Sep 15, 2015 9:47 am

Hi Guys,

I wrote a script a while ago in my solution which has quite a lot of substacks and cards. Each card also has lots of individual objects on them which may have scripts associated to them. Now the problem is I know what the script is called, but I can't seem to find where it exists (I've checked the obvious places like the stack and card scripts). Is there an easy way to search the whole main stack for scripts?

If not, I'll try working through the code using the debugger to find what its calling....

Thanks
Jalz

Hi Jalz,
Did you use the search script tools ?

What Jean-Marc was referring to may be found in the "Edit" menu while the stack is in front (not when the debugger is working). It is "Find and Replace...".

You will love this.
