Creating Help FIles for App

P: n/a
If I am missing something obvious, PLEASE be gentle.

Have a little app.. want to create a help file for it.

Best approach???

Looked thru references... NO MENTION OF IT.

I use VBCommentor and NDoc to make nice MSDN style Help files.
VBCommentor allows you to make XML Comment files just like C#, so
there's the added bonus of having your "help" integrated into the
intellicast for your assembly.

Grumpy,

Do you mean end user help or programmer help?

Hi,

You can use the HTML help workshop to create a help file for
your application.

I have help documentation I've written in Word for my usercontrol and saved
it as an html file. Can I convert this to a help file that is integrated
into the IDE like msdn?
