QUESTION:
How can I display help texts for a certain image object on a Touch Panel?

ANSWER:  
In ProTool, you can use the function "Display Help". When configuring this function for a button, the help text configured for the active image on the panel is displayed. The help appears also when the image object is selected first.

Remedy:
For the image object to stay selected while pressing the help button, configure the function "Imageselect_fixed" with the following parameters: 

  • Imagename = active image 
  • Fieldnumber =  "Tab order" number of image object (Menue Edit > Tab order

Please also configure the function "Display help text" for this button.

The following is an example for a project created under ProTool V6.0 SP1 to display help texts for image objects on a TP170Bcolor:
