Hi there,

I have made this help file, using Easy Help, and wish to open it from my application help menu.

How do I do this?

Can you please give me some sample code.

Thankyou very much
James

You can use ShellExecute(0, 'open', 'MyHelpFile.hlp', nil, nil, SW_NORMAL);

Don't forget to include ShellAPI to your uses clause...

There is an original way to do that, but this one is the easiest of all and doesn;t require that much coding...A single line of code....

The other require HelpContext and stuff....

Cheers,
Viktor
