For fpGUI I have decided on using thte K3 event type, but renamed the
class in fpGUI to not cause conflicts.

I agree with you that the THelpEvent in FPC does look like a rather
"old" or "odd" way of doing things - compared to the rest of the help
types available. Especially since you have HelpKeyword, HelpContext and
HelpType types available.

Do you think there is any chance that we could update the type
definition in FPC?
