Users of Windows applications expect graphical HTML or Windows-style Help. Nothing else will do. With VPM Enterprise you can bring up graphical Help topics for menu prompts and forms by pressing the F1 key.

VPM Enterprise also provides picklist and text help for the fields you put on your application’s forms. While a user is editing a field on a form, pressing F2 or right clicking on the field and selecting Picklist from the shortcut menu brings up a picklist of valid entries. Pressing F3 displays text explaining the field.

This chapter shows you how to implement help in your VPM Enterprise application.
