I want to give the user a little text when he clicks on a button in a dialog box with the question mark of the context help.

Can someone show me an example that clearly explain how to create these such texts, and how to affect the texts to the buttons.
I've tried to find this in the VC help, but I don'nt understand each steps, so an example of this would be a better explaination

I have an example at work, not here at home. BUT,

Go out to amazon.com and buy Microsoft's book on developing help files.  I believe it's "Microsoft Help Workshop".  If you have to write a lot of context-sensitive help, it's well worth it.

You also need to go to microsoft's web site and find the "Help Workshop" upgrade.  Using the old workshop has too many bugs to be useful.

Basically, the workshop will barely assist you in creating the rtf help files.  You assign bookmarks to each page of your help using either the 'K', the '#' or other unintelligible symbols to link data with the help compiler.

In your dialog, make sure the 'Help ID' button is checked, it will create ID numbers in a .hm file for use with the help compiler.

Once done, use the class wizard to add OnContextHelp (or something very similar) to your function.

Good luck.  Buy the book.
