Subject Re: Integrating help texts and tool tips for extension
Date Thu, 10 Sep 2015 11:26:59 GMT

Here is an example to specify tooltip to the menu inserted by the
Addons.xcu file.

The entry has "" URL and index.xhp file contains the
following bookmark and
<bookmark branch="hid/" id="bm_idfoobar12"
<paragraph role="paragraph" id="par_idfoobartip"><ahelp hid=".">This menu
is a tooltip example.</ahelp></paragraph>
The branch attribute have to match with the menu URL.

Jump to a specified position in the help file is work well but sometimes
not its not work because of the
loading duration.
