    Default QtHelp

    Oh, it is always something annoying.

    I'm writing a game in Qt. It occurred to me that I should provide an online game manual. Maybe Qt has a class that will help. Indeed it does: the QtHelp module.

    Oh woe is me. QtHelp is new for Qt 4.4. And I am using PyQt, which is currently using Qt 4.3. I'll just have to be patient I guess, or try to cobble together something out of 4.3.

    There is a different help system available for Qt versions prior to 4.4. Take a look at QAssistantClient.

    The help page for QAssistantClient has the following: "This class is obsolete. It is provided to keep old source code working. We strongly advise against using it in new code."

    Yet the documentation gives no alternative. I'm at a point of wanting to set up help files, and originally updated to 4.4 because of a promise of a new and improved help system. Well, what is that system? Is more coming in a later release? Trolltech's documentation is frustratingly silent on this.

    See QtHelp.

    Thanks! It doesn't show up on the "All classes" page of the documentation.

    Because it is not a class but a module.
