All Known Subinterfaces:
public interface IContext
A context registered for context-sensitive help.
This interface models the context-sensitive help that can be associated with
SWT menus, menu items, and controls, and with JFace actions. A help context
provides the text description of the object with which it is associated with,
as well as topic links that contain more related information. This
information would be displayed to the user when context sensitive help (F1)
In the current implementation of the Help system, valid contexts can be
contributed through the
contexts element of the
"org.eclipse.help.contexts" extension point. The
IHelp.findContext(String) method is used at runtime to create
or fetch IContext objects using there fully qualified contextIds. If there is
a need to override this behavior, then this IContext interface could be
implemented by a client and registered with the SWT control or JFace action.
