create context sensitive help for Groupbox control with HelpProvid

Hi there,

does any one know how to create context sensitive help for Groupbox control
with HelpProvider class?
I can create context sensitive help for any control easily except for
Groupbox.

Here is how you can reproduce it:

1. Create a form, in its properties, set the MinimizeBox and MaximizeBox to
false, and set HelpButton to true, then you will see a little question mark
in the title bar.
2. Drag any controls from the toolbox to the form, remember to include a
groupbox.
3. Drag “HelpProvider” from the toolbox into the form
4. Now in the properties of every control, you will see “HelpKeyword on
helpProvider1”, “HelpNavigator on helpProvider1”, “HelpString on
helpProvider1”, “ShowHelp on helpProvider1” in the misc panel.
5. For every control, set “ShowHelp on helpProvider1” to true and input
whatever you like in the ”HelpString on helpProvider” row.

Ok, it’s done. You will see the context help is working for any control,
except for the groupbox. Do we need to take special care of GroupBox control?
Thanks,
Renee
