A Help Text is a legacy Development Object that defines a block of text that is displayed in an application window to provide help about the application. They are unlikely to be used in modern applications.
Help texts must have a unique name; they cannot use the same name as a message.
They can be accessed with the help ProcScript statement and the $text ProcScript function. New and updated help texts are automatically compiled when you save them.
