A student recently asked:
Is there an Edit | Find Definition References equivalent for Page and Field Configurator?
Great question! In Application Designer, we can open a field and choose Edit | Find Definition References to find all usages of that field. Unfortunately, Page and Field Configurator does not have an equivalent. The good news, however, is Page and Field Configurator is metadata driven. In other words, we can create our own "Find Definition References" equivalent by writing SQL. Here is a short example to get you started:
SELECT * FROM PS_EOCC_CONFIG_FLD WHERE FIELDNAME = 'DESCR'
EOCC_CONFIG_FLD record contains the Component name, Record name, and Field name, allowing us to effectively "Find Definition References" for any of those three items.
