Checks if a text string is in UUID format, e.g. generated by Get(UUID).

Sample Input:
IsUUID ( "random text" )
IsUUID ( "37EEAC77-E584-8642-A026-5BA61C66DDB1" )
IsUUID ( "" )
Sample Output:
0
1
0


 Then copy & paste into FileMaker Advanced's Edit Custom Function window.

Description:

Returns a Boolean result of True if the text string matches a UUID generated by Get(UUID). Useful for validating UUID-based ID fields with direct data entry, e.g. with drop-down lists for type-ahead lookups.

This is my Custom Function and I want to edit it

Very nice and simple. Like it.
Maybe add this to the end of the function:

"and Length ( filter ( Lower ( text ) ; "abcdef0123456789-" ) ) = 36"
