Title: TIP: Adding datasheet help (via F1)
Post by: onesixright on April 09, 2017, 09:56:15 pm
FYI

If you want to add the datasheet to your custom component, double click the component and add under Parameters a paramater with the name HelpURL, the value is the http(s) link to your datasheet.

Now, when you hold your mouse cursor over the component and press F1, ta-da the datasheet loads. Or right click the component and you should see References menu.

Have a look: http://techdocs.altium.com/display/ADRR/Sch_Obj-Parameter((Parameter))_AD (http://techdocs.altium.com/display/ADRR/Sch_Obj-Parameter((Parameter))_AD)

The ComponentLink1Description & ComponentLink1URL also works (shows a Reference menu when right clicking the component).
