Member variable XbpHelp():debugMode Foundation

Displays the online help in debug mode.

Attribute: EXPORTED (OS/2)
Data type: Logical (.F.)

The :debugMode instance variable contains the default value .F. (false). When this value is .F., the online help is not displayed in debug mode. To activate debug mode, the value .T. (true) must be assigned to this instance variable before the :create() method is executed.

In debug mode, the value of the attribute id= or res=, that was specified in the IPF source code (in the corresponding IPF tag :h1. to :h6.) is displayed in the title bar of the help window. This allows cross references within the online help to be tested for correctness.

The Windows help system does not support a Debug mode for compiled help files. Only the help workshop can test compiled help files.
