Hi,
a few weeks ago I found the debug output of the eclipse help plugin in my ide which helped me a lot with my context ids.

Now that all ids are set it's time to create the context help content. The problem is, it's not the developers work and the writers would always ask for the id.

A good solution would be, if the debug option which I used could be delegated to a console, log or something like this without requiring the IDE.

For example:
Person starts the rcp application (no ide), focuses a window, presses F1 and gets the context id in a console.

Thanks in advance!

Ps:
I don't want to modify the super classes of all wizards, views and editors if possible.

We made some changes in CSH debugging for 3.6. Check out this bug, it may help:

https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=280357

CSH debug must be enabled to see these changes:
1) Create a .options file in the working directory with the contents:
org.eclipse.help/debug=true
org.eclipse.help/debug/context=true
2)Run eclipse as "eclipse.exe -debug" and watch the System.out.prints

That's great, so I have another reason for updating the target platform.
Thank you!
