Add the dynamic help to show on Rhino side panels

Is it possible to implement the help files to show on the side panel of rhino ? Just like rhino native commands do.

You need to override CommandContextHelpUrl property of your command:

public class SampleCommand : Command
    public override string EnglishName => "SampleCommand";
    protected override string CommandContextHelpUrl => "HelpUrl";
    public SampleCommand()
        Instance = this;
    public static SampleCommand Instance
        get; private set;
    protected override Result RunCommand(RhinoDoc doc, RunMode mode)
        return Result.Success;

Do I, as the user, have access to this CommandContextHelpUrl property ?

How can I do it?


Hi Altamiro,

We discovered an error in the current version that was preventing this from working. It has been fixed and will be in our next service release.

Thanks for finding and reporting the issue!
