To use my help viewer for your own program, all you need to do is call 'HELP.EXE'
followed by a space and then the topic name.
DN Help will automatically open and search through 'HELP.TXT' until the topic you specified is found.
To launch Help and then load the help topic 'Saving a file', you could use the following code snipped for VB6:
strHelpTopic As String
strHelpTopic = "Saving a file"
Call Shell("HELP.EXE" & " " & strHelpTopic
Alternatively, you could
click here to
download 'LoadHelp.bas' and add it directly to your VB6 project.
Using the LoadHelp module, you could use the following code snippet to lauch Help:
|strHelpTopic = "Saving a file"
Help requires the installation of Amethyst to
function correctly. This should be taken in to consideration before distributing
Help with your software.
However, if you need a version of Help that does not depend on the installation of Amethyst to function, you can request one by contacting me.
