The Default Help

By default, USoft Developer offers status bar help that displays the help text of the particular column that the end-user clicks on. If no help has been defined for a particular column, the help text of the underlying domain will be displayed. Similarly for menu options, the status bar will display a short description of the nature/purpose. The same text will also be displayed if you choose the (default) What's This? option from the Help menu.

Usually, this help will not be very useful (either because of its limited length, or because it can only be text). Linking an external help file to your application offers far more possibilities for providing information related to the application, or application component.
