    Incorrect example in FMP 14 Help

      Summary

      Incorrect example in FMP 14 Help

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      14.0.1

      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:

      Examples
      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.

      Workaround

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