Chapter 15. Implementing Help
No matter how wonderful and easy-to-use your plug-in might be, eventually, users will have questions about how some feature works or they might want further detail on some operation or setting. Fortunately, Eclipse provides a comprehensive framework for including online help within applications.
This chapter begins with an overview of how to access the Eclipse help system and then follows up with a discussion of how to implement help for your application. After that, there is a discussion about how to add context-sensitive (F1) help and then an illustration of how to programmatically access the help system. It finishes up with a discussion of how to guide the user through a series of tasks using a cheat sheet.
