Overview
The following mechanism allows developers to write WLanguage code (functions, statements, etc.) more easily in the code editor:
  • Visualization of the syntax of the function being entered via different 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.
  • Tooltip with the description of the parameter being hovered over. 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 parameters
  • Tooltip with the description of the result. 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
  • Tooltip with the syntaxes available on WLanguage statements. This help appears when you enter the first term of the WLanguage statement. In some cases, the wizard also suggests similar syntaxes. For example:
    • WHILE keyword:
    • IF keyword:
    • LOOP keyword:
Operating mode
  • The assisted input is available at any time on all projects.
  • The icon found in the tooltip for describing the current parameter indicates the type of the expected parameter. For more details on these icons and their meaning, see the "Notes" section of this page.
  • The different tooltips are also displayed when writing the call to the procedures or methods. For more details, see the help about the automatic documentation of procedures and methods.
  • The current syntax of the WLanguage function is always displayed in the status bar.
    Status bar
  • The code editor also shows code completion options when entering function parameters, for example. For more details, see Automatic completion.
