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