Help files

7 posts in this topic

Hi,

I have searched some information about help files and I found this command:

Run('hh.exe "C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\AutoIt.chm"')

But is there a way to send someone to a given help page? And can someone tell me if there is any free program available to create help files?

Thank you :)

Use KeyHH http://www.autoitscript.com/fileman/users/jdeb/test/keyhh%20readme.htm

As far as I understand, you will have to install that program on the end-users computer?

This is what i've done with AutoIt3Help.au3:

If Not FileExists("KeyHH.exe") then FileInstall("KeyHH.exe", "KeyHH.exe",1)
If ProcessExists("KeyHH.exe") Then ProcessClose("KeyHH.exe")
Run('KeyHH.exe -AutoIt3 -#klink "' & $CmdLineRaw & '" Autoit.chm',@scriptDir,@SW_HIDE)

The command line would take this form:

hh.exe "C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\AutoIt.chm::/html/faq.htm"

Also, here is a program that can decompile .chm files:

chmencoder.zip

Also, here is a program that can decompile .chm files:

Microsoft Html WorkShop decompiles as well. It is a complete solution. I have tried other chm or winhelp creators, but they tend to not be up to standard. The Docs for MSHWS are very involving. I pushed them aside after awhile, and just jumped in and started using it. It is easy, once you learn the basic fundermentals of it.

I would recommend MSHWS to anyone, who needs to create helpguides, for their programs.

Thanks, that program works great for me. However I have two questions:

1. How can I change the window title? Since when I change the Title value in the .hpp file it still says "HTML Help" as title.

2. Somehow it is pointing to a file called "index_version.htm". I have removed all references to that file. However it still says the file is missing. I noticed that the file is used for the 'Contents' tab. Anyone who know how to change the default page for the 'Contents' tab?

Thanks again guys :)
