Hi Donat

Certainly a nice extension concept, thought I would throw a suggestion your way.
If you were able to find a way to break up the help for each attribute it would be even better I think. On some projects with extensive forms the explanation per attribute can be very lengthy and scroll over multiple pages.

Hi Brendan,

Thank's for your suggestion.
You mean that sometimes the attribute help is very long?
In this case you can implement your own view mechanism.

At the moment only a hidden div with the help is set to visible. But in your example you can may be open a overlaywindow with page navigation.

You can do what you want in ez way :-) because all help are stored in ContentObjects.

Cheers

Hi Brendan

thanks for your comment!

probably the screenshot showing the help for a complex attribute was misleading. I have added another screenshot to the galley showing a full edit screen with both a global help, defined per class, and specific help, defined per attribute (see http://projects.ez.no/cjw_context...tve_help_per_class_and_per_attribute ).

A problem arises when complex attributes consisting of different elements (such as the user account, url or our geoaddress datatype) are rendered. The standard edit template treats such attributes as one entity and thus does not allow a finer granulation. So far, we think that this is a minor deficiency, as these elements are usually tightly coupled and profit from being explained together.

Regards
Donat

Hi Donat

You're spot on. I simply misinterpreted the extensions capabilities after looking at the screen shot. The new image in the gallery makes it very clear.

Thanks for a nice extension.
