    Field Level Help in Web Help

      Hi All,

      Is possible to add field level help to a web application? If so, please throw me some light on how to achieve it.

          Welcome to the forum.

          It is and it is not difficult. Nonetheless I would recommend going for screen level help rather than field level help if you can.

          How is described on my site. See Calling WebHelp.

          The reason I caution against it is you end up with many topics and your developers have to program each field to the relevant topic. We do that in one major program but in another we have gone for screen level help. In those topics the fields are all set out in a table with descriptions alongside. The developers find it easier, I find it easier but best of all, so do our customers. They can find out about all the fields on the screen while looking at one topic. With everyone happier, seems to be the way to go.
