Help Files for Custom Entities RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am working on help files for custom entities (lists works but form help files don't show up yet). I am doing this brute force, i.e. creating the responding htm files, copy it to the OP/content folder, modify the help_toc.xml file and for the form the ui_cust_CustomForm.htm file. So here are my questions:

    1) In several places you need to use the object code for the custom entity. Since all custom entities start with 10000 how do you avoid conflicts with other 3rd party custom entities?

    2) There are several elements that are replicated on each page, i.e. submission of comments, etc. Is there a way to have that part in an external file that is then automatically pulled into the custom help file (note that right now everything seems to be limited to *.htm files)

    3) Eventually I also would like to have the info in a pdf manual. Is there some way to have everything external and then pull it into these help htm files as well as adobe files (not on demand)?
