    Re: how to create a HELP field in symbian c++

    Do you mean the help file or help system of your Symbian C++ application? If yes then there are good example in the SDK for example HelpExample

    If you are talking about other issues, could you clarify a bit more?

    Re: how to create a HELP field in symbian c++

    For adding help in your application ...please follow below mentioned steps:

    Step-1: From SDK Help browse to Developer Library » Tools and Utilities » Context-sensitive help guide

    step-2:Using this guide create your application related .hlp and .hlp.hrh file

    step-3: place this .hlp file c:\system\help folder.

    step-3: In your appUi class declared the function
    CArrayFix<TCoeHelpContext>* HelpContextL() const

    step-4: In your HandleCommandL() method under help menuitem use this code.
    CArrayFix<TCoeHelpContext>* buf = CCoeAppUi::AppHelpContextL();
    HlpLauncher::LaunchHelpApplicationL(iEikonEnv->WsSession(), buf);

    step-5: code for HelpContextL() method
    CArrayFix<TCoeHelpContext>* CMYAPPUI::HelpContextL() const
    {

    TUid KUidHelpExampleApp; // this is the uid of your .hlp file.

    CArrayFixFlat<TCoeHelpContext>* array =
    new(ELeave)CArrayFixFlat<TCoeHelpContext>(1);
    CleanupStack::PushL(array);
    array->AppendL(TCoeHelpContext(KUidHelpExampleApp,KContext1));
    CleanupStack::Pop(array);
    return array;
    //KContext1 is the help context,you get this value from your .hlp.hrh

    file

    }

    step-5: include it in your .pkg file
    "app.hlp: -"!:\resource\help\app.hlp"
