Overview
The following help mechanism simplifies the input of the WLanguage functions in the code editor:
  • A visualization of the syntax currently typed via several tooltips. This help is displayed when the name of the function is entirely typed.
    Help on syntaxes
    If several syntaxes are available for the current function, they are displayed.
    To modify the active syntax, press Ctrl + Down or Ctrl + Up.
  • A tooltip displays the description of the parameter hovered by the mouse cursor (tooltip of parameters). This tooltip appears:
    • when the mouse cursor is located on the position of a parameter to type (the mouse cursor hovers the syntax in the tooltip).
    • if Alt + F1 is used on a parameter that is already typed.
      Help on settings
  • A tooltip displays the description of the result (result tooltip). This tooltip appears:
    • when the mouse cursor is located on the name of the function (when typing a new function).
    • if Alt + F1 is pressed on the name of a function that is already typed.
      Help on the result
