Not a typo, but a glitch nonetheless. Spot the difference:

Also the tour page can [and should] have it's own tab here: http://www.xyplorer.com/support.htm . Right now this has no tab (like highlights) and opens as a sibling tab of products/featurelist.

It's on purpose: I half-buried those pages because they have so many old screenshots. :whistle:

::help 'idh_scripting_comref.htm#idh_sc_confirm';

"Pops message box with OK/Cancel, returns result." -- is no longer true. Perhaps: "Pops message box with specified buttons, returns an integer identifying pressed button."

"return 1 on OK, 0 on Cancel; exceptions see Buttons above." -- is redundant now. Perhaps just: "return See Buttons above."

Also: ~ "Default button index of initially focused button, counting from left/1: [Default] First button/2: Second button, and so on."

Syntax

Example

Displays the first 12 characters of the content (!) of each file:
return readfile(<cc_item> , , 12);
Should be reworded to include it's use case in functions.

It would be nice if help's index included "tab sets" as an alternative keyword for "tabsets".

Syntax

savethumb(file="<curitem>, thumbnail_file="*_thumb", widthbox, heightbox, format="jpg", border_width)
Shouldn't each param be enclosed in square brackets because they're all optional?

file="<curitem> is missing the closing quotation mark.

I also have problems understanding where width and height come into the picture, not physically but syntax-wise, the help manual says they're "variables of the thumbnail_file argument". However, so are widthbox and heightbox and yet they are listed in the overall scheme of things *headscratch* :?

Like this:

Code: Select all

savethumb(, "*-<width>x<height>", 400, 400, "jpg");
