My app does not currently support any user help screens. This is something I'll need to implement before too long. What is the best way to implement user friendly help screens? HTML is one option but means either building a lite-browser into my app (don't want to) or using an external browser (don't like that either).

Any suggestions?

hi,

You can use JEditorPane to call html files. Develop help screens in html and call them in JEditorPane.

To understand JEditorPane control see this link
JEditorPane

Hope This Helps

Hi Mike,

You could use the java help system, although when I looked into this some time ago this system would have been larger than my app!
