After creating a Catalog item type and a Catalog item implementation, you can add links to the implementation that provide additional information used when the Catalog item is included in a run-time image.

This information can include the following:

  • The location of additional Help documentation for the Catalog item
  • The location of the Catalog item source files
  • The location of a Platform Builder project (.pbpxml) file

The following procedures show you how to add two links to your My Catalog Item implementation, a source browsing link and a documentation link. For more information about elements of a build method, see BuildMethod Block.
