    If a plug-in function defines a description, only put it in the type-ahead tool tip/pop up

    jaketraynham

      Product and version: FileMaker Pro 15.0.1

      OS: Mac & Win

      Description: If a plug-in function defines a description, only put it in the type-ahead tool tip/pop up

       

       

      How to replicate:

      1. Create a plug-in

      2. Use the new RegisterExternalFunctionEx function to register a plug-in function, specifying the functionPrototype "Plugin_Version\r/*Returns the plug-in version*/" with a description of "Returns the plug-in version".

      3. Run FileMaker and open a calculation from Script Workspace

      4. Start typing "version"

       

       

      Expected Results:

      I would expect to just see "Returns the plug-in version" in the description part of the type-ahead pop up.

       

       

      Actual Results:

      I see this in the description part of the type-ahead pop up:

       

       

        PluginVersion

        /*Returns the plug-in version*/

       

       

        Returns the plug-in version

       

       

      It's putting both the function prototype and the description in the pop up.

       

       

      Observations and/or Suggested Fixes:

      None of the built-in calculation functions show their function prototypes in this description part, so it seems that if a plug-in function is registered with the new RegisterExternalFunctionEx function and a description is given, that only that would show up as well. I understand that previously throwing the function prototype in there was "on a whim" for plug-in functions, and was great before we had RegisterExternalFunctionEx, but now it needs to be updated to look better.
