Context-Sensitive Access Controls

P: n/a
Does anyone know of any restrictions of controls on Access forms that
makes them ineligible for Context-Sensitive help? Are some types of
controls not able to be made context-sensitive?

I have started adding Context-sensitive help to my Access 2000
application. On the first form I am working on, it seems that the text
boxes respond to the Context-sensitive 'What's this ?' but the labels
and image controls do not, even though they have the Help Context ID
property. I would have thought that they would not have this property
if they could not be Context-sensitive.

Now I am wondering what other types of controls might not work, or
perhaps, hopefully, there is some other property I need to set in
addition, to make it work for these controls. I often use labels
instead of command buttons in order to be able to set the background
color, background style etc and would really like to be able to add a
nice help topic via the "What's this ?' tool.

Any one seen this problem before, or know of a list of what control
types work, or don't work?
