    A badge Layout trigger badge on a layout appears in the lower-right corner of a layout on which you set a layout script trigger. If you don't see the badge, choose View menu > Show > Script Triggers. In the Manage Layouts dialog box, you see Layout script trigger badge in Manage Layouts dialog box next to the name of a layout for which a layout script trigger is set.
