Using the WinHelp API with VB5/6

 Download the WinHelp API sample (attached below)

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.
