User Help

This is an interesting subject to attempt to lookup. I'm refering to the "Help" that users click-on to better understand thier program. I found a product called 'RoboHelp'
 that costs approx. $1000, so thats beyond my budget.

Q. How do the experts build-in user "Help' as seen is so many programs "Help" menu?

"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.

I think you can use HTML Help workshop. Go to Start-->Programs-->Html Help Work shop. It comes free with XP.

You can create a help application and then link it to your project. Ypu can even open it using F1 key(Though need few line(s) of code depending on the kind of application you are developing) from your application.
