Since J4.1 help text (description) is hidden in the config.xml file for my component. So how do I add the "Toggle Inline Help" button to my config view of my component? I can add this toggle button in my admin edit form easily enough using


But I need this in the configuration options view.

<inlinehelp button="show" />

Works like a charm.
