Need help on building ‘Help’ from scratch.

 

I have a lot of my code ready and I now need to add the Help infrastructure. In looking at some of the tools that come with Qt, it implies that you have an idea of where to start. I don’t. I have a new app that I need to add the help infrastruture too. I don’t need a really fancy version, just the basic help dialog with a list of items.

The tutorials on the website assume prior knowledge which I don’t have. Where do I start?

Do you familiar with HTML?
If yes Qt has few widgets for display HTML
You can build based on it

HTML would be a good way, just display the Help stuff then.

Have you taken a look at the Qt Help Framework Overview [doc.qt.nokia.com]?

That would be the best solution

Which knowledge are you talking about?
