  Function definition: (Copy & paste into FileMaker's Edit Custom Function window)

A companion custom function when using the BaseElements Plugin Clipboard functions to copy/paste FileMaker objects as their XML version (e.g. if you are storing a library of elements in a FileMaker file).

This simply converts the clipboard format into a plain English equivalent so you can recognise which type of XML data it is, e.g. field, script, table, layout etc.

If I have missed any formats let me know!
