Parameter Description Example value
Value The new value.

Returns OK or error.


Sets whether to show text positions.
The MBS Plugin can show text position and selection length for calculation dialog or custom functions dialog.
Can be enabled/disabled in preferences dialog, too.

Text positions are only enabled by the plugin if the advanced tools in FileMaker preferences are enabled, so they don't show up for ordinary people just installing FileMaker Pro.
