You can refer to this tool in any formula, macro, module, or other script in Blockpad. You can use either its name or its full path:
To refer to it by name, use
BrowseFormulasTool(make sure the library Library.Tools.Formulas is included with Include Libaries)
- To refer to it by its full path, use
The Browse Formulas tool opens the formula browser, where you can view all of the formulas in a file, in the order they are calculated.
Blockpad formulas calculate like spreadsheets, in order of dependency. So, if a value “length” is defined in a formula, and then “length” is used in another formula to define “area”, then “length” calculates before “area”, no matter where either of them are located in the file.
The formula browser allows you to view these formulas and their dependencies, arranged by the steps they are calculated in.
Open the formula browser:
- In the toolbar, go to Formulas>Browse Formulas.
- To open the formula browser straight to a specific formula, use the Show in Formula Manager tool.
