Multiple fields could work, but that adds to schema and it takes time.
You could use text objects, but then you are dependent on layouts and context.
And if you load them into global variables, you find yourself with a really slow data viewer, which you might need for other stuff.
Using the InsertText script step is a nice way to get text like the content of a JS or CSS file into a variable.
However, if you try to paste the content of such files into the dialog, you will get a FileMaker error saying that there is a limit of 30.000 characters.
The great thing is that this limit only apply to the dialog chrome – not the actual script step.
Now we just need to find a way to get our file content into the script step.
This is where this tool will help you.
Simply paste the content into the field, click the button and write the variable name you want to target.
Now the script step is on your clipboard and ready to paste into the script in your solution.
Simple, right ?
And now you have everything you need in the script, which makes your code more portable.
If you also targeted a local variable, your data viewer is not dying from the content.
