Title: help: unable to include infopops ...

Hi all,

I got struck while including infopops for SWT widgets.  Please help.


I have defined a simple plugin (by extending view).  My plugin contains a button, for which a help is set.
 
...
public void createPartControl(Composite parent) {
                b=new Button(parent,SWT.PUSH);
                b.setText("Hello World");
                WorkbenchHelp.setHelp(b,"org.example.help.push_button");
        }
...

Here, "org.example.help.push_button" is another plugin which contains help pages.
The plugin.xml and HelpContexts.xml file content is as below:

Plugin.xml
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<plugin id="org.example.help.push_button"
        name="Push button help plugin"
        version="0.0.1"
        provider-name="Pradeep bojan">
<extension point="org.eclipse.help.contexts">
        <contexts name="HelpContexts.xml"/>
</extension>
</plugin>

HelpContexts.xml
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<contexts>
        <content id="push button">
                <description>Welcome to SWT Programming</description>
                <topic href="" label="pushing the hello button"/>
                <topic href="" label="Hello Button reference"/>
        </content>
</contexts>

Whiling running, I am able to see my plugin in Windows > Show View > ..
When I set focus to the button, and press F1, infopop is not displayed.  No error message found in log file.

Please let me know, what is the problem.  I am using Eclipse 2.1.0

Regards,
Pradeep.
