Idiots guide to adding Contextual Help [message #620070] Thu, 09 October 2008 11:59

Does anyone know of an idiots guide to adding contextual help to our
Eclipse Plugin (targeted at Eclipse 3.3 and 3.4)

The plugin is intergrated into Eclipse (not an RCP) and I have managed
to create and package a help plugin that successfully displays within
the Eclipse Help system.

I have added the contexts.xml file with appropriate IDs and our
developer has integrated the call into the code:

PlatformUI.getWorkbench().getHelpSystem().setHelp(itsBrowser ,
"com.ourcompany.devplugin.help.the_browser");

However we seem to be having some issues getting the Help to display
correctly when the focus is on our views and the user taps F1. The
included Eclipse help on the subject is somewhat vague (but maybe it's
as simple as it suggests?) so i'm wondering if there is anything like an
idiots guid out there?

Many thanks.
