You used to be able to do this by adding TRACEHELP=Y to the [GENERAL]
section of your app's .ini file. The way it works...you highlight the field,
press F1, and a dialog box pops up that contains a bunch of info. Part of
the dialog box is the context ID.
Now that apps aren't using .ini files any more, I haven't heard of anything
comparable. If you find out, let me know, too. I'd love to get that info...
