Delphi Help and Win32 SDK Reference

Hi All,

I need to know how I can "Win32 SDK Reference" to Delphi help files so that when I highlight any Win32 api function from the Delphi IDE and press F1 the help file will go automatically to the function page in the "Win32 SDK Reference"

Thanks in advance

ok easier enough...

Delphi Menu > Help > Customize


Click on the Index Tab [ ]


Right mouse click anywhere on the white part which contains all the references to the help files.

select "Add files"

look for win32.hlp or whatever help file you wish to add..

Then close that window, it will say, are you sure you want to exit and do you want to save the changes, say yes.

Go back to delphi's IDE, highlight an API (sendmessage etc etc) and hit F1.

tobjectpascal,

Thank you so much for your help and cooperation.

I've followed your steps and now the Win32 help file index is merged in the Delphi 7 help index.

The only problem I have now is that when I highlight any API example (Sendmessage) and press F1 it doesn't go the the SendMessage Page in the help file, instead it just open the index tab with blank search term

So any suggestions on what that might be the reason for this?

Thanks in advance

no, as I said when I highlight any API example (sendMessage) and press F1 the help file gets opened at the index tab but it does not jump inside the help file to the SendMessage page.

So any idea why this is happening?

thanks in advance

if you did exactly what i said, it should work, i've used it for Delphi 4/5 and 6 but not tried it with Delphi 7 so, try adding the help file to the other tabs, if there are any more.
