Built In Help Pages


Hi,
Can anyone tell me how to embed help pages into an application? Im
looking for the standard windows help system that you typically see...
little purple books as the index pages in the other pane, ability to
open the correct page on demand etc. Thanks ahead of time!!!

See the HelpProvider class.

You can still build the compiled help files (CHM) with the help workshop but
HelpProvider gives you an easy to use interface for the resulting file.

You will also be able to use NDoc for creating the help files if you're
doing files for code etc.

I've never tried to use NDoc for a simple help file by creating raw XML help
files.... It might be possible.

Bare with my ignorance here for a second, and thanks for the help btw. I
understood the HelpProvider class to be more of an object driven help
class, ie. click the little question mark then click an object and get
a little help note on the object in question. Can this class also be
utilized to bring up a hull on help system. If you have any sample
links floating around Id be forever greatful. :)

We have a strange error here. We have an application that is built in VC++ 6.0 and uses a C library built using the same.

What happens now is, that any call that we make to the C library(also built in .Net Env now) from the VC++ Application(built in .Net now), falls prey to a runtime exception and gets into our try catch block. We are...

Anyone know of a good specific source (other than a standard VBA book) with lots of examples for using just the MS Access 2002 Built-In Functions? I find the "Expression Builder" and the help files a little lacking and less than comprehensive. Any sources or Web links would be highly appreciated. Denny G.

Dear Great Experts, I have a problem and need your help! We have a Flat DLL built in C++ (CCC), and on top of it, we built another DLL built in C# (SSS), which has .Net Assembly. CCC was imported into SSS. Now we build applications using SSS as a reference, and we found some problems exist in CCC. From our applicatyion, We can Debug into SSS, but cannot go further into CCC.

Hi everyone, which compiler will Python 2.5 on Windows (Intel) be built with?

However, even before the release of Python 2.5, I cannot seem to find many retailers around here that still carry Visual Studio 2003, and some were a...

For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
