Member variable XbpHelp():resGeneralHelp Foundation

Contains the numeric ID for the help text that is displayed when the "General help F2" option of the online help menu is selected.

Attribute: EXPORTED (OS/2)
Data type: Numeric (0)

Consistent with CUA standard guidelines, the menu item "General help F2" in the help menu of the online help displays help text with a general description of the application program. This help text must be written in the IPF format. The numeric ID res= of the corresponding IPF tag :h1. (to :h6.) is to be assigned to the instance variable :resGeneralHelp prior to calling the :create() method so that this help text can be displayed.

If no ID is assigned to :resGeneralHelp, the menu item "General help F2" has no effect and the method :showGeneralHelp() is also ignored.

A standardized Help menu does not exist under Windows. Therefore, this instance variable is not supported on Windows platforms.
