I see that the model .components editor presents a documentation box, and I figured if I filled it with text, then regeneratedwith pfu.eefgen, perhaps the pop-up text would appear and/or the question mark icon. But, alas, there must be some other steps required. Is there a link somewhere with the procedure for getting the Documentation help text displayed?

To answer my own question ...
The question mark icon and the pop-up context help are generated if you modify the emf .genmodel file's Edit->Property Description attributes for your model's attributes.

I'd guess the EEF .components "Documentation" text may be associated with some other widget, but I haven't figured that out yet.

Hi Jay,


The Documentation textarea for each element on EEF models is not used in
the generation at all. this is only a field for documenting the element
itself.

the icon mark generated by EEF uses the Edit Property Description
attributes as you find out.
