Hello,

for HackWeek I am working on an experimental YaST module, see
http://idea.opensuse.org/content/ideas/usable-printer-setup-tool

Currently I use for the dialogs something like
--------------------------------------------------------------
Wizard::SetContentsButtons ( caption,
                             contents,
                             HELPS["basic_add_dialog"]:"",
                             Label::BackButton(),
                             Label::NextButton()
                           );
--------------------------------------------------------------

Is it possible to get Wizard dialogs without help sub-window?
I.e. have full-screen contents?


Reason 1:
My superb new innovative dialogs (TM) are fully self-explanatory
so that there is no need for any help text at all.

Reason 2:
I read in books from usability experts that a UI is very likely
bad designed when explanation texts (aka. help texts) are needed.

Reason 3:
My superb new innovative dialogs (TM) are perfectly designed ;-)


Kind Regards
