Displays a help window

int sm_hlp_by_name(char *help_screen);

The name of the help screen to display.



sm_hlp_by_name displays and processes the specified screen as a Panther help screen. If the help screen has a data entry field, the function copies its data back to the underlying field, as if the help screen were specified in the widget's help_screen property and the user pressed HELP.

Refer to Chapter 12, "Providing Help Facilities," in Using the Editors for information about Panther help screen creation and behavior.
