Incorrect example in FMP 14 Help


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

Mac OS X 10.10.4

Description of the issue

In the FileMaker Pro 14 Help system, the item:
Home > Reference > Functions reference > Get functions > Get(TouchKeyboardState)
states an example and mis-names a key command step in the example:

Checks the current setting of the touch keyboard and disables the touch keyboard if it is enabled.
If [ Get ( TouchKeyboardState ) = 1]
     Show/Hide Touch Keyboard [Hide]
End If

There is no "Show/Hide Touch Keyboard" command. Instead there is "Enable Touch Keyboard [ Off ]" to perform the step needed for the example.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Open the Help file, look at the Functions reference, Get functions, and click on Get(TouchKeyboardState) to view the example.

Expected result

Example should have code you could actually try.

Actual result

Provides a script step that doesn't exist.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

None, you just can't create the example script.

Configuration information

Just a comment:
If the name means anything, I'd prefer an actual "Show/Hide Touch Keyboard [Hide]" because the existing "Enable Touch Keyboard [ Off ]" script step appears to actually disable rather than just hide the keyboard, and external keyboards as well.


Use the Enable Touch Keyboard [ Off ] script step in place of the nonexistent Show/Hide Touch Keyboard [Hide].
