Vex Function tips in wrangle, how to display them on demand

Recommended Posts

For example, your are at this point:

@P = setpointattrib(  <<HERE>>

and the function tip window comes up. How do you get that window back when you' re already typing the arguments ? I understand this overlay window is displayed after the first parenthesis is typed, so you can erase it and retype it, but it's not a good solution. Also, F1 certainly opens a full browser to display the same help, but I'd rather not have an additional full fledged browser running just to display it.

Is there a trick to get it back on demand ?

I also would like to know this, don't think its currently possible (haven't checked in h19 yet) but maybe a RFE is the way to go

Maybe you  can have Textport at one side as one pane , Hit plus icon right next to tabs , go to New Pane Tab Type > Misc > Textport and on the textport type exhelp and name of the function .

I personally add a space then backspace after the first parenthesis, like so

But the tooltip disappears as soon as we do anything.

It's a bit annoying, considering the working tooltip in hscript..
