"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

 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.
