Hello,I wish to know the most used and appropriate way of
providing help for a flex application deployed. I need to find how
help information can be delivered, like the what`s this help type
You'll probably want to write your help text using HTML.
Please check the limitations on what HTML the Flash Player can
display. For example, the Player cannot display tables.
You can display the help text using either the Text or
TextArea controls. Both controls have a htmlText property; the
TextArea will display scrollbars (you'll have to put the Text
control into a container to get scrollbars).
You can fetch the help text using HTTPService, but use
resultFormat="text" so the Flash Player won't try to interpret the
html in your help text as XML. Once you've received the help text
you can display it in your TextArea, something like this:
We use Camtasia for "help files". It allows you to record
your screen and voice so you can do a walkthru of the given
function or what not. It exports into swf format which is great for
including in a flex app.
There might be a Adobe product with similar functionality,
but I havn't stumbled upon it. :-)
