Help Id

Siebel Object Types > Help Id

Specifies the HTML file name that contains the help topics for a screen in a Siebel application.

A Help Id object definition may be referenced by entering its name as the property text in the Help Identifier property of a view or screen object definition. The Help Id object definition, in turn, references a help topic file (HTML format) associated with the application through the HTML Help URL property.

When the user chooses Help > Contents from the application-level menu to invoke context-sensitive online help, the application calls the Siebel Web Engine (SWE) GotoPage method, which uses SWE code to display the correct help topic in a separate browser window.

For more information about the help implementation in Siebel applications, read Siebel Object Interfaces Reference.
