Getting the Text from a Help File (.chm)

4 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hi,

I want to be able to get the text inside a compiled help file during my programs execution and add it to a data structure.

For example a window like the one in the attached JPEG.

Is this possible in AutoIT?

Thanks,

jbc1

You can use the _IE* functions to interact with a .chm file.

Here's an example of attaching to the AutoIt Help File.

#include <IE.au3>

; Register the IE.au3 Error Handler
_IEErrorHandlerRegister()

; Attach to the helpfile browser window
$oIE = _IEAttach("AutoIt Help", "Embedded")
If Not IsObj($oIE) Then
    MsgBox(48, "Error", "Could not attach to the help file.")
    Exit
EndIf

That's excellant.

Thank you!
