Hello experts,

Can you use Help.ShowHelp to display in a AxWebBrowser object, if so how?  The only place i can get it to display is in a new EI window.  Where I would like it to display is in the AxWebBrowser object on the "TabControl" selected index 2.  As you can see below, the commented out code and Sub LoadHelp work, but what is the point of Help.ShowHelp() function if you can not use it the way you want.  =)

Thanks,

-Tim

Private Sub Form1_KeyDown(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.KeyEventArgs) Handles MyBase.KeyDown

        If e.KeyCode = Keys.F1 Then
            Help.ShowHelp(Me, "C:\Documents and Settings\netdg1\My Documents\Visual Studio Projects\FileSifterDataset\bin\help.htm")
            'LoadHelp()
            'TabControl1.SelectedIndex = 2
        End If

End Sub

Private Sub LoadHelp()

        'Load the Help Document in the help section
        Dim bLoaded As Boolean

        If bLoaded = False Then
            Dim nullObject As System.Object = 0
            Dim str As String = ""
            Dim nullObjStr As System.Object = str

            Cursor.Current = Cursors.WaitCursor
            AxWebBrowser1.Navigate(FilePath, nullObject, nullObjStr, nullObjStr, nullObjStr)
            Cursor.Current = Cursors.Default
            bLoaded = True
        End If

End Sub

What happened when you used LoadHelp?  I don't see, though, in LoadHelp, where you pass FilePath.

This is the file path   "C:\Documents and Settings\netdg1\My Documents\Visual Studio Projects\FileSifterDataset\bin\help.htm"

You can just as well substitute "FilePath" for "C:\Documents and Settings\netdg1\My Documents\Visual Studio Projects\FileSifterDataset\bin\help.htm".
For the problem at hand yes it was never passed in I as a varible but it should be "C:\Documents and Settings\netdg1\My Documents\Visual Studio Projects\FileSifterDataset\bin\help.htm"

Sorry for abou that I just was being lazy.

I don't think that you can get this to work, without a lot of complicated magic, of which I don't have.  Why don't you want to just show the htm file in the browser?

It does not matter about showing it in the browser to me, it is not really even my project, it just will not get done if I don't do it..  But, unfortunately it is already approved in the use case that way.  My other method LoadHelp() works, but I was just curious if the Help.showhelp was able to do it.

Thank you,
Tim

In the case of Help.ShowHelp(Me..., what is the context for Me.  Is it the WebBrowser control or a form?  If it is the form, you might try the browser control as the parent instead.
