Application Security Testing: An Integral Part of DevOps

Context-sensitive help

When a user wants to find help on a column that has focus, I want that user to be able to hit F1, and help to be displayed based on that column. What do you think is the best way to implement this? I primarily use datawindows.

The best way to do this is to make use of the tag value in the datawindow and window controls. If you already use the tag for microhelp, then you can use a special character to divide up the tag. Then put the context entry for the help file in the tag.
