#529 new enhancement

Fix help when using S*P in SasView GUI

Reported by: butler Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: SasView 5.0.0
Component: SasView Keywords:
Cc: Work Package: SasView GUI Enhancements


At Code Camp IV it was pointed out that Both the help and the description (quick pop up help) only point to one of the two models if P*S is up. The quick help goes to P and the full help goes to S. Paul K. points out we could replace HELP with question marks on each of P and S that takes the help to the respective place but that probably best if we chose to ditch the pop up help (see ticket #528).

  • Milestone changed from SasView Next Release +1 to SasView 5.0.0

  • Milestone changed from SasView 5.0.0 to SasView 4.2.0
  • Priority changed from major to blocker
  • Work Package changed from SasView Documentation to SasView Bug Fixing

Testing 4.2beta on W7.

Reverting this to SasView 4.2.0 as a blocker as just discovered that if you create a mixture model with Sum|Multiply then got to Plugin Models and select the mixture model, whilst the Description tells you what models are in the mixture, the Help button redirects to a nonexistent location: http://index.html/

It should perhaps redirect to SasView/doc/user/sasgui/perspectives/fitting/models/index.html (ie, the full list of models)?

In b43988196e5c4f2dfbf3ec5c9b66703d5656b08d/sasview:

Fix blank page when clicking help on a plugin model

Addresses #529. Plungin models do not have model.html help pages so
check if model is plugin. If so send to general model help. If regular
built-in model send to model.html help page. eventually need better
solution .. also for original problem with ticket which is the P*S.

To note: latest issue is a workaround: better solution would be something like that outlined in the original ticket above.

Can't imagine we will fix in 4.x so moving to 5.0 as a GUI Enhancement.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
