Layout Helpers are used in the layout editor to automatically fill in expressions. There is currently no editor for helpers so the XML must be edited directly.


Helper Tags:

Description: A short description of what the helper does. This will also be displayed on the layout panel when a helper is selected.

Help Keyword: The keyword is used to link directly into the help system.

Providers: Wrapper tag that holds each provider.

Provider: The object type that this helper can be used for.

Categories: Categories are used to group helpers so they can be easily found from the layout panel.
