User Help...

Hi Guys,

I have a small question about the user help. Has anyone provided user help for the Server as well as the Client?

I have a help system for the client, but I have not included any help on the server. Is this needed? My server has a simple GUI with a start/stop and exit buttons, do you think I should provide a help window for this?

Thank you for any help.

Regards,
James.

Hi James,

I did include help files for both client and server.

You might want a minimal help file for the server just so the (really really dumb) end user knows how they can choose the database file (you are meeting this requirement aren't you?).

Hallo,

i think the same.
But should both user helps are in the same html file or in seperate files?

What do you think?

Hi,

I also included help for both client and server. It was not much work anyway to add server-side help; I could reuse all functionality from the client UI classes.

Hi Frans,

do you use 1 or 2 files for help?

I used two files. The one for the server was very short.
