Hi,
I was wondering if anyone could tell me the best way to implement a help screen from a pulldown help menu.
ie. Info -> Help
Clicking Help would then bring up the help screen.
Thanks!!
MS

If your question is how to display a full blown help system, the previous reply is right on. If your question is how to hook up some code to the menu, here's a rather elaborate scheme I use:

Help/About is a dialog. Help/Product is an HTML page, but the Controller knows all about that.

With a little knowledge, a cast iron skillet is non-stick and lasts a lifetime.
