Help System update

with one comment

We have updated the Help System based on some of the comments we received last week. We changed the code to now use JQuery for the system. Clicking on the “?” icon can now display  one or multiple text boxes. We have made it easy to add text boxes in the code and the JavaScript will take care of hiding and showing the text boxes when they are clicked.

Here is a sample page with the current implementation:

The first picture shows when the help button in the properties section has not been clicked, then when it is clicked it will display text boxes next to the fields that need them. Please let us know what you think and what we should change. Also any ideas for color/style of these text boxes.

  1. I like how you are using the empty space to the right of all the form elements. I wonder if it is possible to make one larger box that shows up on the right side?

    I’d like to have one larger box under the title for the box to be abe to summarize the help for that whole section.

    Also, right now the comments look like buttons. Maybe if they just had the same background colour as the other text?

    Thanks! It is nice to see the mock ups.
