Shows a popup in the Code window that contains information about the parameters of the initial function or statement. If you have a function or statement that contains functions as its parameters, choosing Parameter Info provides information about the first function. Quick Info provides information about each embedded function.

As you type a parameter it is bold until you type the comma used to delineate it from the next parameter.

The Parameter Info, once activated, will not close until:

  • All of the required parameters are entered.

  • The function is ended without using all of the optional parameters.

  • You press ESC.
