' The first argument is a Control object that works as the
' parent for the help dialog box.
Help.ShowHelpIndex(Me, "c:\myhelpfile.chm")

(You can also use a URL that uses forward slashes as separators.) The other method, ShowHelp,
is overloaded to provide access to different portions of the help document:

' Display the contents of the help file.
Help.ShowHelp(Me, "c:\myhelpfile.chm")
' Display the index page of the help file.
Help.ShowHelp(Me, "c:\myhelpfile.chm", HelpNavigator.Index)
' Display the search page of the help file.
Help.ShowHelp(Me, "c:\myhelpfile.chm", HelpNavigator.Find)
' Display the help page for a specific keyword.
Help.ShowHelp(Me, "c:\myhelpfile.chm", "mykeyword")
' Display the help page for the specific topic #123.
Help.ShowHel (Me, "c:\myhelpfile.chm", HelpNavigator.Topic, 123)
