Subject Re: [jira] [Commented] (OFBIZ-4941) Proposal for a new help system
Date Fri, 21 Sep 2012 01:13:08 GMT
Hi Tom, excellent job, looks good.

you might want to consider to store the field descriptions in the 
entitymodel so they are also shown on the menus themselves. try the 
productstore editscreen and put your mouse over a fieldname.....then the 
description is shown....

Regards,
Hans

not be the final presentation format.

update screen and I did some clean up of labels and drop-down list. There are issues like
this all through the application so I did not want to get bogged down with patches at this
time.
