The Help flow allows a user to navigate (via a global Help button) to a global area containing help for the application. An application may also contain contextual help links within the content, allowing the user to instantly navigate to a specific topic in the Help system.
Help may simply be a page or few pages with help material or a full Help System. The common Help system used with BLAF applications is OHW - Oracle Help for Web (Equivalent Java implementation: OHJ - Oracle Help for Java)
See the Global Page Templates Guideline for interaction and usage specifications for this template.
The Help flow can be started in two ways, by selecting a Global Help Button, or by selecting an inline contextual Help link (See Context-sensitive Help in the Help Methods guideline for valid usage).
When the Global Help button is selected, Help is launched in a secondary browser window in kiosk mode, starting at the Help Contents page, and providing access to the full Help System for the application.
When a contextual Help link is selected, Help is launched in a secondary browser window in kiosk mode, starting at the Help topic page appropriate to the context of the link location in the application.
