The ability to add context sensitive help into the IDF for quick reference to inhouse function library documentation.

Use Case

Where a software house has defined there own library of functions for use in application development, it would be nice to be able to use standard Uniface functionality to be able to delivery context sensitive help from within the IDF. Pressing Alt-F1 could link to a help file defined in the assignment file rather than Uniface help file (which would still use F1) to display the user defined help on that specific context under the cursor.


The ability to offer easy documentation to developers is important in a large system where people have access to lots of functions.
