Feature Description
Documentation

Enhancements were made to the scripting documentation packaged with Harmony:

  • The style and layout has been updated.
  • A tree view navigation pane was added to the left of the documentation to make navigation easier.
  • Most of the information that is not useful to users, such as private classes and members, hierarchy graphs and file references was removed.

The scripting documentation can be viewed by opening the view menu in the Script Editor view and selecting Help > Scripting Interface Documentation. It can also be viewed online by clicking on the following link: Harmony Scripting Interface Reference.
