phoenix_title wx.html.HtmlModalHelp

This class uses wx.html.HtmlHelpController to display help in a modal dialog.

This is useful on platforms such as Mac where if you display help from a modal dialog, the help window must itself be a modal dialog.

Create objects of this class on the stack, for example:

# The help can be browsed during the lifetime of self object when the
# user quits the help, program execution will continue.
help = wx.html.HtmlModalHelp(parent, "help", "My topic")
