Input Editor (Might change with updates)

The input editor is the vital component of MathScript. Understanding how to use the input editor will help you in unleashing the full potential of the software. Here, we detail the layout of the editor window.
  • Basic Layout

    The appearence of toolbar is changed in recent versions. However, their functionalities remain the same. The tool bar contains the buttons as follows
    • Apply: Apply the current changes and solve the equation (replaced with a tick mark in new versions)
    • Undo: Undo the change to text editor
    • BkSp: BackSpace button
    • Clear: Clear contents of editor
    • Keyboard: Enable/Disable soft keyboard
    • Customize: Customize the editor (currently only size of buttons is supported)
    • Help: Brief help on editor
  • Button Groups

    The buttons groups, when clicked show up a child-pad which is shown in image below.

  • Getting help

    Help can be obtained by pressing and holding a button. For example, when the button "Integral" is held, it opens up the help as:

    The help is of two parts
  • Understanding functions

    Functions are the key components of any Computer Algebra System (CAS). The functions are of the form
    function(var1,var2,var3,...)
    When a button representing a function is clicked, the function's template is added on to the editor's text in the current cursor position. All the necessary brackets are included.
    The snapshot just after pressing the "integrate" button is shown below.

    As explained before, the template of integrate, which is integrate(func,variable) is added to the input editor. Additionally, the function's syntax is also shown as a hint. We show it as a floating message instead of having a premanent hint box. This is to save space in the editing area. Often, when entering functions, you will be required to navigate the cursor to left or right. We have provided two small cursor navigation buttons in left and right of the input box. Please use it when needed.
  • Using Soft Keyboard

    For prople who become familarized with the functions and syntax of the engine, they can readily use the Soft Keys for input. Alternatively, for including large programs, it is recommended that the users might prefer to edit it in a text box and paste it in the input box. The SoftKeyboard is enabled by default and can be disabled if required.

Getting Help


  • Context sensitive help can be obtained by pressing and holding any command button. For detailed help, press the Menu button in the phone, and go to help.
  • For turorials and examples, you can choose "Learn n Solve" in the menu, and choose appropriate sub-folders.
  • Note that the application is much more than a calculator and hence, depending on the user's exposure, it might require additional effort to get used to the software.
