Method to determine if a script was called by another script or by user input

Status: Under Review

I'd love to have the ability within a script to determine if the script is running in response to another script, or if it's running in response to user input.

 

If I could have a conditional like:

 

if(this.CalledByScript)

{

   println("I was called by another script!");

}

 

I'd be one happy camper.  Better yet, this.CallingScript - null if not called by script, otherwise contains the name of the calling script.  That would make me a happy camper with a cooler full of my favorite beverage.

 

The Change Log for records shows an icon for actions initiated by script.  I wonder if this is something that's available and just not documented?

Forrest, this is an interesting idea. Could you elaborate on a use case for this?
