Download the WinHelp API sample
The WinHelp API is the most powerful method available for using WinHelp with any modern programming language. This small sample will show you how to:
- Open the Contents, Index and Find tabs tabs of the WinHelp dialog
- Display a topic using a Topic ID
- Display a topic using a keyword
There's always been a consistency problem with opening the Contents, Index and Find tabs tabs of the WinHelp dialog using the recommended methods. This sample uses the undocumented HELP_TAB parameter of the WinHelp API call to accomplish this correctly every time.
