You can view two types of information within the current script file. You can view script and function information as well as display key word help for any script or function within the current script file.
You can view documentation for any script or function within the current script file. The Script Information dialog is identical to the New Script dialog discussed in 5.2 The New Script Dialog. First, move the insertion point to an individual script or function. You can use the Next Script, Prior Script, or Script List actions to move to the desired script or function. Any of the three navigation methods moves the insertion point to the beginning line of the script or function. Press DOWN ARROW twice to move into the body of the script or function. This also removes the highlight from the name of the script or function.
To view the documentation, choose the Documentation option from the View menu or press CTRL+D. Using either action displays the Script Information multipage dialog. The first page of this dialog, General, displays general information about the script or function. The information shown in the Script Information dialog changes depending on whether you are viewing script or function information. When you move to a script, the following information is shown:
When you select a function, the Script Information dialog displays the following information:
The Parameters page displays any parameters used by the selected function. You can view a list of existing parameters on this page along with their descriptions.
You can find more information about both pages of the Script Information dialog in 5.2 The New Script Dialog. After you are finished viewing the script information, press ESC to close the dialog.
Within the Script Manager, you can get key word help. Key word help is available for scripts and all three types of functions contained within the current script file. To view key word help, move the insertion point to the desired script or function name and press SHIFT+F1. The Script Manager displays the Key Word Help dialog containing specific information on the script or function.
When you view key word help for a script or user-defined function, the information shown is taken from the appropriate documentation file. For example when you view key word help from within the script file for Microsoft Word, Microsoft Word.jss, The Script Manager retrieves the documentation for all scripts and user-defined functions from the Microsoft Word.jsd file.
If you are viewing key word help for a built-in function, the Script Manager retrieves that information from the builtin.jsd documentation file. The builtin.jsd file contains information for all built-in functions within the JAWS scripting language. After you have reviewed the key word help information, press ESC to close the Key Word Help dialog.
