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. If several syntaxes are available for the current function, arrows appear in the different tooltips.
    To modify the active syntax, press [Alt] + [Right arrow] or [Alt] + [Left arrow].To modify the active syntax, press [Ctrl Alt] + [Right arrow] or [Ctrl Alt] + [Left arrow].
  • 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 pressed on a parameter that is already typed.
  • 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.
Operating mode
  • The assisted input is available at any time for all the projects.
