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.
