When option '1=Create' is chosen from the 'Maintain Template HELP Panels' menu a screen similar to the following example is used to enter details of the new HELP panel:
The following input options apply when creating a new HELP panel from the 'Create Template HELP Panel' screen:
Mandatory. Specifies the identifier of the HELP panel. HELP panel identifiers must be unique within an application template and must conform to the IBM i naming standards defined in Valid Names on the IBM i in Common Input Options. The name specified is the name shown as the panel identifier when the HELP panel is presented.
Mandatory. Specifies the title of the HELP panel when it is displayed to a user. It is recommended that upper and lower case characters are used and that the value is centered in the space available. This ensures the best aesthetic effect when it is displayed to a user of the HELP panel.
Mandatory, but always prefilled to <highest sequence number + 100>. This sequence number determines the sequence that HELP panels will be displayed to a user when they elect to 'walk through' all the HELP panels available for an application template.
Copy from HELP panel / in application template
Optional. The name of an existing HELP panel from any existing application template can be copied to create this new template.
When you have completed all the new HELP panel details, you will be returned to the 'Maintain Template HELP Panels' Menu.
You would normally then enter a '5=Review/Change HELP panel' request against the help panel you have just created. This allows you to review and/or change the actual HELP panel body.
