|A new feature added to PBPaste V2.1
was something called quick help. A few people have written in wondering how this can help
their development efforts. Well I came up with the idea because I noticed during my
development using PowerBuilder that there where a few really useful help file pages but I
always had great difficulty finding them, normally spending a minute or so hacking around
until I found the page I wanted.
For example there is an index page with all of the
datawindow objects listed, from here you can click on the object type to drill into a list
of properties and descriptions. Great for coding Modifies and Describes, but only great if
you can find the page!
So I added a feature to PBPaste, you could achieve the same with shortcuts in the menu
to the help file, where by you figure out the name of the pages you use the most often and
add them to the quick help menu, then when you want to see that page in the help you just
click on the PBPaste icon quick help and then the item you want. Again you could achieve
the same effect using shortcuts in a special quick help menu.
The name of the entry for the datawindow page I was talking about was:
properties, DataWindow objects
