hint setting

This setting is a string value. It specifies a small help text that is visible when the user clicks the ? button in the title bar of the Layer Properties tool window, and then clicks the parameter.

The hint text may be arbitrarily large. Long strings can be split across multiple lines using the backslash \ character. If it is not specified, no help is provided.

This setting can only occur inside a parameter block.


  default:    param MyParam      hint = "This is a help text for my \              own parameter!"    endparam
