It needs to be dependent on the question type, and perhaps on whether
goback is possible too. Newt has a newtPushHelpLine function and if you
pass it NULL, the default string is
"<Tab>/<Alt-Tab> between elements | <Space> selects | <F12> next
I think we should leave out the F12 bit, I think it's better if we have
Enter to continue/choose a button to continue and conveniently hide the
Random suggestions for help lines:
- For bool, string, password:
"<Tab> between elements | <Enter> to choose"
- For select:
"<Tab> between elements | Arrow keys to move up/down | <Enter> to
- For multiselect:
"<Tab> between elements | Arrow keys to move up/down | <Space> to
- For note, error: None at all? Or mention something about tab and enter
only when goback is possible?
The distinction between Space to select/Enter to choose sucks. This
needs better English.
