I have created a dialog for a plug-in using Resedit.
One of the things I would like to do was to open another window to show a help text. Is there any way to do it from within COFFEE of must I create another layout in Resedit. I don't need a complicated window. Just a multiline text field and one OK button.
Thank you in advance.

Create a new dialog class and open it just the way you opened your first dialog. That´s all. Maybe considering taking a modal dialog so the user is forced to close it before he keeps on working with the "normal" plugindialog.
You can of course add manually the dialog fields, but that way it is hardcoded and doesn´t have multilanguage support. But if you only need a multiline text field and an ok button there shouldn´t be much to translate.
Do not forget you need a second unique ID from the plugincafe for each new dialog you open as far as I can remember.
