Create Context-Aware Help Systems

Built-in or Bolt-on? Ideally, only the developer knows for sure. Bring your powered up laptop to this hands-on workshop and leave with a context-aware Help system integrated with one of your own FileMaker Pro solutions. The techniques presented are plug-in free and platform independent. Step-by-step you’ll develop a functioning Help system. As a bonus, you’ll also receive generic Help content for common user actions, such as finds and navigation.

• Learn how to create and connect a basic Help system with a minimum of muss and fuss
• Discover how to provide the right help at the right time … making the Help system context-aware
• See how to leverage the Help system using custom menus
• Find out how to tap the power of the Web Viewer for a richer user experience
