Getting context-sensitive Help

In addition to accessing Help through the Help menu and F1 key, you can use context-sensitive Help in the Script view to display Help for reserved words and built-in functions.

To use context-sensitive Help:

  1. Place the insertion point within a reserved word (such as DO or CREATE) or built-in function (such as Open or Retrieve).

  2. Press Shift+F1.

    The Help window displays information about the reserved word or function.

Copying Help text

You can copy text from the Help window into the Script view. This is an easy way to get more information about arguments required by built-in functions. You can also copy scripts directly from code examples and modify them for use in your application.
