Creating Context Sensitive Help Pages.

One of Pedro’s features is that it provides context sensitive help for the End Users. The help pages are created by the Data Modeller, usually with information provided by the domain expert for the particular data model being created.

The pages are in HTML format and may be created by any means you wish. These pages are then placed in the doc folder within the data model as mentioned above.

The help pages are then linked to the model in the ConfigurationFile in the config folder. Using the cancerPatientRecord model, an example of how to do this is:

Demographic is the name of the form on which is found the field named Ethnic_Group for which there is a helpLink tag linking to an html page called Ethnic_Group.html (this page will be found in the doc folder).
