Help calling Help Files in Delphi 2.

I have successfully created a help file but how do I call it from within Delphi 2? I added it to "Project/Options/Application/Help File" but I'm not sure what to do next. I tried using the WinHelp function but didn't get very far. I don't want to do anything complex,
just call the help file from within an application I'm writing and display it. I need all the code, i.e. if there needs to be something added to the uses clause, what command to use and the parameters to supply. Thanks in advance.

Just do something like this:

Application.HelpCommand(HELP_CONTENTS, 0);
(Search the help for "WINHELP" for more info.)
  or
Application.HelpContext(ContextNo);
  or
Application.HelpJump('TApplication'); // or something...

I managed to find out about HelpJump but since you confirmed
it I'll give max points.
Cheers,
