Description (last modified by butler)

At Code Camp IV it was pointed out that something should be done about the "description" pop up that reads from the "short description" in the sasmodel. Two levels of questions were raised:

  • Is it still useful (i.e. should we get rid of it)
  • If it is useful could we replace with the autogenerated table of parameters

Something of a consensus that the short description is mostly obsolete EXCEPT in the case of sum|multi models and plugin models, where it is the only documentation a user can provide. Although if you don't add any text in the sum|multi description box SasView generates a description for you!

Could some sort of custom model documentation for plugins be generated "on the fly"?
