Bentley Configuration Explorer - Find The Sources of All Your Configuration Variables

Here's a useful tip for Bentley Configuration Explorer (BCE), go to the View tab and tick 'Tabbed Variable Dossier'.

This changes the Variable Dossier dialog to a more easily navigable tabbed format and, most significantly, adds a Source Code tab.

The Source Code tab lists:

  • all of the files containing the selected variable.
  • all statements containing the selected variable in each file.
  • the line number of each statement.

Very useful for understanding your configuration and troubleshooting.

If you have not looked at it yet, BCE is an essential tool for any configuration work, downloadable from the Bentley iWare site, Tools section.
