Parameter

Add the name and description for a single parameter to the Parameters section of Quick Help. The parameters are added to Quick Help in the order that they appear in the markup.

The Parameters section is only added to Quick Help if there is at least one Parameters or Parameter delimiter in the markup for a symbol. The section contains entries for all the Parameters delimiters followed by entries for all the Parameter delimiters.

Works with:

  •     Playgrounds

  • ✓ Symbol documentation

Syntax

  • * | + | - parameter parameter name: description
  • optional continuation of description
  •  
  •     optional paragraph

Add paragraphs to the description of a symbol by adding an empty line and indenting the text for the paragraph by a tab or by four spaces.

The description displayed in Quick Help for the parameter is created as described in Parameters Section.

Example

  1. /// - parameter llamaCount: The number of llamas in the managed herd.
