A visual demo.  Nothing fancy, more for the record.

 

1 Begin by creating a toolbox

2  Select Analysis Tools

3  Add the script to the toolbox once added

4  Now start filling out the dialog's General parameters.

5 The actual Parameters section needs to be created to include Label, Name, Data Type, whether it is

    required,  optional or derived and whether it is an input or output parameter.

Kind of obvious what needs to be done... elapsed time so far, 2 minutes.

You can fill out tool validation if you want.  I personally don't bother unless someone is paying.

8  Time for the help stuff...this is important though

Yes... the less than obvious save button will make things good. 

    You can include all kinds of stuff, like images etc.

10 Ready to roll.

11  Oh yes... the handy little 'i' symbol shows the tool help if you just need a quick tip on the input parameters.

Total elapsed time from start to finish, less than 5 minutes.
