Instructions/Help program
« on: 2012-Mar-12 »
I like to add instructions into my programs (as web-only ones may not be read for one reason or another), and thus I needed a re-usable routine.

Hence this test program.

It has the start of the instructions for my AtomZ game, but only the introduction has been more or less completed - everything else needs to be added.

I'm not going to state how to work it - the idea is to see how easy it is to use :)

Hi MrTatoad only like idea... I touch sometime a soft called Zbrush, and this have a very intuitve help, not it´s a document, only you put the soft in test mode, and when you click in some part, the soft tells what do this icon...

The problem is keeping the program size down but also retain readability and usability - for mobiles at least anything other text would be rather extravagant, although for webOS I could just have created a PDF and call that :)

However, no PDF viewer (as default) rules that idea out for Android...
