This disclosure explains a method for tying textual and visual help together as a single form of user assistance. By using the Eclipse and ViewletBuilder technologies, an information developer can hook a visual representation (possibly also containing audio) of a textual task directly to the help topic as a Show Me link. The user will be able to read, hear, and/or use the visual walk through to complete their task while remaining in the product.
