Squish tip of the week: How to use the Squish Documentation

Are you feeling lost or overwhelmed by the many different functionalities in Squish?

We from froglogic know there are lots of features in Squish, and sometimes you can easily get lost in all the functions and extensions which Squish supports. Nevertheless, we are working hard to make sure that our customers always get what they need or look for and that is why we have an extensive Online Documentation with Search capability.

The easiest way to use the Squish Documentation or Manual is by navigating into the different topics using the Table of Contents on the left of the main Squish Documentation page. There is also an A-Z Index which lists all terms and functions and if you already know what you are looking for there is a great search function in place.

Search box and functionality

When you open the latest Squish Manual there is a Search tab next to the table of content.

Squish Documentation Search Tab

Click at the Search Tab and enter your desired search term. Now all or parts of the word/term that you entered will appear including functions and a list of relevant links.

For example, if you enter the search term “exists” the search result will show three functions: object.exists and testData.exists plus two specific functions waitForContextExists for Web and File.exists for Javascript.
