[dtp-dev] DTP context-sensitive help proposal


Hello DTP community,

I've been tasked with writing a document that proposes how folks can contribute
user assistance to DTP, and this includes implementation details on context-
sensitive help. The first draft of the proposal will be posted to the DTP wiki
by the middle of next week so you can all see it before EclipseCon.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to drop me a line.

Re: [dtp-dev] how-to add context help






The DTP User Guide distributed as Data Tools Platform Documentation
(org.eclipse.datatools.doc.user) is a good start to hook up to current
context help.
Shall I log this as a enhancement bug ?

Anthos

Basically, in the java code you need to register a help id and then you
need to create the help plug-in.

I'm not sure what the documentation plan and schedule looks like for DTP,
but we may be able to register some help IDs in the code so that you can
contribute your own help plug-in until the DTP help is ready.

There is some documenation here:
