Build help files as part of solution/project/deployment build?

Hi all,
I'm using DocBook and HTML Help Workshop to build my application's CHM
help file, and this works fine, using a simple batch file to run the
build process.

What I would like to do is set things up in my main Solution so that
when I build the deployment project, the help files are built as well.
Is there anywhere I can plug in a run of my build batch file? Custom
Actions don't seem to be the place, as they don't take place when
building.

All/any suggestions welcome!

Thanks,

James

If you are using C#, use the Build Events page of the Project Properties
dialog. Make the "Post-build Event" call your batch file to build your
help.

If you are using VB.NET, or want more flexibility in your build,
considering using a build tool like NAnt. http://nant.sourceforge.net/
