Display compiled HTML help file in VB.NET app

I have created a compiled HTML helpfile that I want to use in my VB.Net
application. What code do I need to link this compiled file to the
help button in my application??

I have created my application in Visual Studio (VB.Net).

Thanks

if its a .chm file, you can just do a Process.Start("FileNameHere"), r if its
an .html or .htm file, put a WebBrowser control on a form,load then form,
then programmatically navigate the WebBrowser control to that file

hope this helps

Check out the HelpProvider component in the toolbox.

Hi

The last 4 pages of http://www.jososoft.dk/hh.pdf are in English and
explains how to get the help file working with an application.
(The first 16 pages are in Danish - my tongue)
