Hi all,

Is there anyway I can use a HTML help file I created from within Delphi - and make it context sensitive?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You'll have to use a HtmlHelp API to use a compiled html help file (created in MsHtmlHelpCompiler or other), then all you have to do is refer to the .chm file in project options/application. If you make an install program, make sure it places the file in the right location.
Just add the HtmlHelpApi to your project. You can make it context-sensitive by making your help buttons/actions refer to different html files within the chm-file.

If you want me to send you the Api and some more info, just contact me: DonBartholomew@hotmail.com

Hi Barry,

I'll find out tomorrow.  I had forgotten about this question :)  I was asking for another guy here.  He has it working perfectly, but I don't know how he ended up doing it.

Sorry mate.

Okay the following has not been tested by me, but it appears from the web page to be able to fill your needs.

This is freeware.
Also Inthe mentioned this link too.
