 First set:

Application.HelpFile :=  <<Full path and name of your .HLP file here>>

  To call a given help context you can then use:

Application.HelpContext(<<Appropriate context value>>);

  To call the index of your help file you can do something like this:

var
  st: string;
  ar: Array[0..255] of Char;
begin
  st := 'WinHlp32.exe '+  <<Full path and name of your .HLP file here>>;
  StrPCopy(ar,st);
  WinExec(ar,1);
end;


  To write the help file I'd suggest something off here:

  perhaps Help Maker Plus 3.1.
