What's this help button ...

Is there someone who know how I can get the What's This help button visible while the form's borderstyle is still Resizable?

"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.

You can make the borderstyle resizable, but the What's this help button does not show unless the max and min buttons are set to false.

I need both.
Can this be done with SendMessage API?

If it can be done, I don't know how.  Even Microsoft applications such as Word and Excel don't use both.  Your best bet might be to use a menu option for the What's This Help like Word and Excel do.

If there is a way, I would like to know it, too.

The company I work for uses RoboHelp.  If you don't have a few hundred dollars to fork out for a help system, Visual Studio provides Help Workshop to build a help file.  "ShowWhatsThis" in the VB help demonstrates how to create a popup menu with the question "What's This?" when the user right-clicks on a control.

Hope this gets you started.
