This is what I made: Give credit to Me! It took me a long time to make it:

CODE

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

#include <IE.au3>

FileDelete(@ScriptDir&"\HelpTest.html")

Filewrite(@ScriptDir&"\HelpTest.html", "Yeah! It works good!!!")

$FirstFile = @ScriptDir&"\HelpTest.html"

$Form1 = GUICreate("Program Help File", 636, 415, 193, 115)

$Obj1 = ObjCreate("Shell.Explorer.2")

$Obj1_ctrl = GUICtrlCreateObj($Obj1, 216, 0, 418, 412)

$ListView1 = GUICtrlCreateListView("Help File Index", 0, 0, 210, 406)

$List1 = GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("Help!",$ListView1)

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1

$nMsg = GUIGetMsg()

Switch $nMsg

Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

Exit

Case $List1

_IENavigate($Obj1, $FirstFile)

EndSwitch

WEnd

It is very unnessecery to make a helpfile with AutoIt while others are free and looking professional. Most of the program's helpfile are made with one of those freeware. Making one in AutoIt is a waste of time except you want lots of special features in it which interacts with your program.

No, It wouldn't be a waste of time at all. Its not a matter of looking professonal; It's good the way it is, and, you can say your program was 100% made in AutoitV3 code. I think it works well.

Wouldn't it be simpler just to use MsgBox()?

I use Frontpage to created the Webpages and microsofts freeware utility "HTML Help Workshop" to generate the Helpfile.
