Thread: I need suggestions for creating a Help system for a Visual Basic Program.

  1. #1

    I need suggestions for creating a Help system for a Visual Basic Program.

    I need suggestions for creating a Help system for a Visual Basic Program.

    We have a requirement to provide "on-line help" to our Visual Basic program. What I believe they mean is the sort of Help functionality that one normally sees in C++ generated program.

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    I have been told that the file type is a .CHM file that the help system uses. Is there a Help Component in Visual Basic?

    What I would really like to do is to have the user choose between having the help be displayed in either .CHM or .HTM format. So, is there a web browser component in Visual Basic too?

    Don't know if VB has what you want built in, someone else may know....

    These two links may 'help' you.

    I tried the help workshop briefly a while ago. It seemed fairly easy to learn.
