How best to incorporate Office 2007 - style help in VB.NET applications
Posted on 2008-11-13
Hi. We are looking to develop a series of VB.NET applications using the .NET 3.5 Framework, and would like to incorporate context-sensitive help in a similar fashion to that used in MS Office 2007, so our users don't have to get used to two very different styles. So I have two questions, really -
1) What type of help system does Office 2000 use (i.e. HTML help, WebHelp, Help 2.0, etc.), and
2) Which help file generation systems would you recommend for this type of work - we're currently looking at RoboHelp 7, Help to Manual 5 and MadCap Flash Help...?
A quick response would be very helpful - hence the 500-point allocation.
With thanks in antcipation.
