Hi AutoMate,

1) Yes, the help text for classes and attribute are stored in the wb_load file above the definition of the $ClassDef or $Attribute object. The text can be edited by opening the Documentation property for the $ClassDef or $Attribute object in the class editor. Note that you have to open it from the object editor (activate Open Object). As the wb_load file is a text-file it is also possible to edit this file with a text editor.

2)When the class volume is built, the file 'classvolumename'_xtthelp.dat is created on $pwrp_load. This file contains the documentations blocks in xtt helptext format. It should be included in the main helpfile for the Project, $pwrp_cnf/xtt_help.dat

<include> $pwrp_load/'classvolumename'_xtthelp.dat

When this is done the 'Help Class' entry in the popup menu should work. It's also possible to open the help from the command line in the runtime navigator

xtt> help 'classvolumename'
xtt> help 'classname'

If you create object graphs the class help can be opened from a method toolbar or method menu.

Also a html version of the class documentation is created on $pwrp_web with the start page

$pwrp_web/'classvolumename'_index.html

Hi Claes,

So far, so good! Using your advice, minimal help is now available from xtt runtime. Thanks! What does it take to get class help to work also in the off-line PLC configurator? Object graphs are the next challenge.

It actually takes that we fix a bug, and it will be fixed to the next release.

Claes,

Thanks for letting me know. It's usually safe to bet it's never a Proview software issue! Was dismayed to see the Proview web-site down for the last two days! Thanks to Mazzo's DNS issue notification (maba.dk/), I was able to find my way back home! BTW, I have a simple object graphic working now, so very pleased with my learning progress. The more you know, the more awesome Proview becomes!

Thanks again for all of your help, guidance and patience!

Hi Marc,

I also want to thank you for all of the great how-to videos. Your instructional videos really make getting started so much easier! Thanks to your videos, I was able to muddle my way through the initiation process. With your help, I purchased a Velleman I/O kit for play time early in the process and got it working very quickly. Your efforts are much appreciated and we all encourage you to continue your educational endeavors!

THANKS!
