If I create a Quickly-Project there is a default Menubar which shows the Help-Dialog(Contents - "index.page" from help/C - Folder). How can I manually show the Content-Help Dialog? There is no code in the created default-project. Background: I have more than one dialogs in my app. I want to show/reach the content-dialog in every dialog of my app and also not only from the Menubar...

I found a solution on: Gnome documentation and Python documentation. With the python command,

import commands
commands.getstatusoutput(yelp path/to/index.page)

I am able show the index.page file in my app.
