I've got a custom object and a Visualforce page with a controller extension for that object. I've replaced the object's help page with a Visualforce page so I can show documentation on how the object is used (various kinds of logging).

I'd like to surface the Visualforce help page in the controller extension page. I realize I can do this by manually making a link to the VF page, but is there a Visualforce tag or tag property that does this by exposing the page I've already connected?

Nope. The Context Sensitive Help Setting is not pulled in by tabStyle or standardController attributes.

You can, however, make it appear in exactly the same place as the native Custom Object Help by taking advantage of the help property on an apex:sectionHeader tag:

<apex:page tabStyle="MyObject__c">
    <apex:sectionHeader title="Header" help="{!URLFOR($Page.MyObjectHelp)}" />

enter image description here

    Works great! Didn't expect to find the property for that in the header.
