Correspondence Between And Data Source's Follow


Assuming text objects, other than manually using the designer to set object names and their data source name to the same value, is it possible to:

  • find if a named text object (DesignObject.Name) refers to a data source (Substring.Name)
  • find which objects use a given data source

Hi, unfortunately there's no API to tell what named susbstring used in an Object, or what object holds a named substring.

In design time, name that with consideration. Press F11 & F12 to show both names then - keep screenshot of that :)
