I have downloaded and installed the updated version of COMCTL32.OCX. However, the files doesn't contain the help file for the controls. Does anyone know where I could download the help file? (this filename should be comctl1.hlp) Thank you.

I've always had it say help file not found when wanting help on a common control.  All you have to do is go into VB's help and search on the topic you want.

I know that. But it's not as convenient as when I can click on a control and then press F1. :p
Also, I think maybe VB's help would miss some new features that's on the newer version of the controls.

When you download, it should come together with a help file
If it did not come with one, then there is not possible for you
to find it .
