Hi,

How can I implement the Eclipse contextual help in Graphiti? I would like that when pressing F1 on a node or connection, the corresponding help is shown.

I can't seem to find any mention of this anywhere.

Thanks!
Seb

I'm also interested in this. Investigating. This discussion might be useful:

Seb,

we have just (actually in Kepler M3 to be released at Nov 16th)) introduced
the posibility to register keybindings for custom features. So a possible
way to do this would be to write a custom feature that calls Eclipse help
and register the keybinding with F1. See
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=323349 for details.

Thanks a lot for the quick answer.

Sounds like this could work nicely. I'm looking forward to the next stable release to try this!
