Best practice to make a Help window?

Recommended Posts


I've made a small GUI that has a menuitem '?'. I don't need a complete help like a .chm or something. Simply a small window (white background, black text) with several lines of text and some paragraphs. I've tried to use a html file but calling it up with

If $msg = $helpmenuitem1 Then Run ( @ComSpec & " /c start " & "readme.html" )

does not look very good to me.

So I thought I'd work with labels. Unfortunately they do not allow word wrap. Is there another way?
