Hi all
i want to do contextsensitive help for Dialogs. i have some doubts.

1.To make context sensitive help for dialogs can i have to
follow the same procedure of making contextsensitive help for views ?

2.Can i have to map xml files and html files? In the extension
should i add the plugin
"org.eclipse.help.contexts" to make contextsensitive help for
Dialogs?

Thanks in advance
Muthu

Context help works the same way for dialogs as it does for views. It
will work best if your dialog is a subclass of TrayDialog which will
allow the help to be opened to the right of the dialog.

As to how to set up context help it is easiest if you start with a
working example. If you pick up Eclipse 3.4, Milestone 4 or later the
new plugin wizard can create a view which has context help. This can be
a model for how to add context help.
