How to Create Process/Function/Form Help Text

LANSA automatically controls the handling of the Help key for process, function and form level help. Again, the help for LANSA applications is context sensitive. LANSA determines whether field, function or form level help is required and automatically displays the corresponding text.

Unlike field level help which can be generated by LANSA, the process, function and form level help must be entered by the developer. Help text should be created for each process, as well as for each function within a process. Each Form has Repository level help as well as code level help inside the component.

When editing a process definition, function or form, you can create help text by using the Process Repository Help Tab in the Visual LANSA User Guide.

The text is entered directly using the capabilities of the Repository Help Editor. You should also be familiar with How to Use Special Characters and How to Use Special Values in help text.
