@IsModalHelp (Formula Language)

Indicates whether the current document is a modal Help document.



Return value



  • Returns 1 (True) if the document is a modal Help document
  • Returns 0 (False) if the document is not a modal Help document


A modal Help document is a document that displays as a dialog box that you must dismiss before you can access any other currently open windows. Use @IsModalHelp to determine modality so you can execute a formula only when the document is (or isn't) a modal Help document.

You cannot use this function in Web applications.
