5. Class Help File

About this task

You can associate a custom help (.hlp) file that is created using a third party tool with a class. The help file will assist object designers when they are configuring point objects based on the point class.

In order to make the help file specific to the class you are creating, it is recommended that you write the help file after you configure the other class components.

Note: Refer to the documentation from your help-based software for details about creating custom help files.
