Finding Unused Styles

Hi all,

 

I'm using a single CSS theme for all layouts in a given file. I'd like to know if there's a quick way to identify any styles in that theme that aren't being used anywhere in the file. 

 

Thanks in advance!

Hi Kris,

 

That is indeed a useful tool, but I don't see how it addresses the issue of styles within a theme that aren't being used, i.e. they're orphaned styles. Maybe I missed something.

 

Thanks!

I looked at the tool only briefly.

Sorry it does not have exactly the functionality you want.

Pitch an improvement suggestion to RCC maybe.

Theme / style data does not seem to be included in the DDR so my guess would not possible. I might be wrong.

Are you that concerned with CSS overhead or is their some other benefit you see?

Just curious...

Happy Holiday

Hi Kris,

 

It's mostly just out of curiosity if it can be done at this point. It's that "enquiring minds want to know" thing  :)

 

Happy Holidays to you, as well!

Hey Kent, I thought of you when I found this!  You, and everyone, CAN find which styles are unused in a theme!  And much more!

 

Check out fmXRaySpecs http://workflowdata.com/fmxrayspecs.html

 

It is free!

 

You perform similar process as RCC (select all objects on a layout and copy to clipboard) and it creates records from the objects.  It will Identify object names (you can search & sort), button names, conditional formatting, value lists attached and … drumroll … style names.  After you collect into fmXRaySpecs objects from all your layouts (a good informational tool anyway), sort by style and, comparing to your style tab in inspector, see what is unused.

 

But even more powerfully ... if you select an item in the list, you can display a graphical representation of the object highlighted on the layout to help you pinpoint it!  Wow!  I don't know about you but I've been tripped by an invisible object name that I couldn't find on a layout.  It also shows where styles have been overridden (which you will want to search for and usually fix). This all works for other areas in FM as well, such as scripts. Check it out, it does much more than I've explained also.

 

Did I mention it is free!!!  Sorry, it is currently Mac only.  I am really pumped about this!  It's great that we have these tools available.
