When you visit a formula edit page it will automatically enhance the formula textarea with the EditArea code editor. This includes formula fields, validation rule formulas, workflow rule formulas, and field update formulas.
Editor Features Include:
- Syntax highlighting
- Tabbing (tab and shift-tab)
- Parentheses matching
- Find and Replace
- No code wrapping
- Resize editor window by clicking bottom right corner
A new button is created named "Load Field Details" that loads details about the fields found in the formula.
Field Details Include:
- Field type
- How many times it is used
- Formula field compile sizes
- Field edit links
- Field record values
- Field Sub Details (shown by clicking the expand arrow)
- Object Name
- Field Label
- Field Help Text
- For picklist fields, their picklist values
- For formula fields, their formula
Formula fields found in the formula will load the enhanced editor for their own formulas, even providing the Load Field Details for themselves, which allows you to drill down through all formulas used in the parent formula.
