Launching A Help File

Recommended Posts

alawoona

I am writing a script that has a Help Menu in the GUI. I have written a compiled help file (myhelp.chm). What script command do I use to launch the help file from within my script?

thanx

GUISetHelp()

This function was made for this purpose. It is in the manual.

Note: GUISetHelp is only to set a command (executable file) to run when you press F1 in your GUI window.

Alawoona seems to be using a GUI menu, so GUISetHelp wouldn't be of much use.

Alawoona, use something like this:

$HelpPath = "C:\Program Files\HelpFile.chm";
Run(@COMSPEC & ' /c start "' & $HelpPath & '"');

Both replies are useful - thanx. Also found another way to run .CHM files:

Run("C:\Windows\hh.exe " & '"' & $HelpPath & '"')

where $HelpPath is the path to the help.chm file
