Library Reference Provides concise descriptions of Photon's and PhAB's global data structures and functions, arranged alphabetically for easy reference. The back of the manual has a summary of these functions, grouped according to their main area of application.
Widget Reference Contains guidelines for programming widgets, along with concise descriptions of all global data structures, resources, and convenience functions associated with widgets. It also gives you practical examples of how to use Photon widgets and widget functions.
