The following statement is a personal opinion and is not addressed to you specifically! So take it as it is!

These types of answers are actually more harmful then they are helpful. Not only that they don't actually help the person reach a solution but they may affect some, and actually will affect certain people by at least demoralizing them. We are not in school to say "I can't give you a straight answer because you are on a test" or by giving them a riddle which may lead that person on a wrong path that is even farther from the solution, we are here to learn from each other. So it is best to actually not to say anything then giving an answer that isn't helpful or by making fun of them for not knowing. Not everyone is good at searching on google for the answer, maybe they don't know exactly what to search for. Why is it so hard to tell someone, "Here you do it this way, use that and like that"?! This as a side note, because I saw in general, on other platforms as well, many answers that were so bad and actually harmful. I have a friend that tried to get into programing but quit it because he posted like only 2 questions on another popular website, and because the questions where really beginner level many started criticizing him for what he asked, like "How can you not know that?!", well he was just starting so how could he have know.

As for what you said that, in that paragraph it says not to use it, yeah it is true, but it also says the following "Use of this API is subject to major limitations", so it's not like not to use it because it is bad, but because other reasons.
As for the other part, it is actually a good thing in that situation that it doesn't uses what you give it, and it actually is telling you why in documentation, because it may lead to an unusable screen.
