Interactive Help Browser Window

Help Browser

The Help window has four panes.

Contents

The Contents pane displays help topics organised by category in a hierarchical list.

Index

The Index pane displays help topics in alphabetical order.

You can click in the list and type the beginning of a topic name to search for it. The program will highlight the topic which begins with the text you typed. To clear the current search press the backspace key. If the first character is a '*' the program will highlight any topic which contains the text following the *. For example, if you type '*customer', the program will jump to the first topic containing the word 'customer'. You can press the '+' (plus) and '-' (minus) keys to go to the next or previous matching topic.

Search

The Search pane displays a complete list of words contained in the Help. If you have a particular word or words in mind this is the place to go.

As you type, the program jumps to the nearest matching word in the word list, and the topics found list shows the topics which contain the word or, for multiple words, all of the words you entered.

Topic

The Topic pane displays the help topic in a Web Browser. Note that if you don't have a suitable Browser object installed on your system, help is displayed in a separate Browser window and the Topic pane is hidden.

The Back and Forward buttons let you navigate through the topics which you have already visited. The Print button lets you print the current topic to the printer. The Copy button lets you copy the selected text to the clipboard. Note that some of these buttons are not supported in some versions of the Browser.

The Bookmarks menu lets you add, organise, and pick your topics using bookmarks. You can add links to specific help pages in the Vision Help, or any page on a website.

The Bookmarks menu contains a few links to the Caliach website.

WarningWARNING: Note that bookmarks to help pages contain the full address of the topic. If you then move your help folder to another location, these addresses will become invalid.
