Specify the help file for the application:

App.Helpfile="MyApp.help"
Form1.setFocus
sendkeys"{F1}"



-of course, you can set the help index, etc... but this is enough to get you on your way!

-Good luck!!

Obvious typo:

 "MyApp.help" should read "MyApp.hlp"

This question was awarded, but never cleared due to the JSP-500 errors of that time.  It was "stuck" against userID -1 versus the intended expert whom you awarded.  This corrects the problem and the expert will now receive these points; points verified.
