How to implement context help in a plug-in


I've been looking for documentation on how to implement context help for my plugin, without success (I found a thread that mentioned about JavaHelp, but did not have any more specific details).

Can someone point out where I can find such documentation and/or any related information?

Many thanks in advance,

You'll need to package a standard Java helpset with your plugin which must be defined via <helpset> tag in plugin.xml.

Default action for invoking context help via HelpTopicID is com.intellij.ide.actions.ContextHelpAction
