hi guys,
we're building a help file for our project and by pressing F1, we want a .chm (a help file) to popup by passing a topic as a parameter to that file so it will display it.
any suggestions on doing this?
thanks
rock

I'm assuming that you just pass the name of your .CHM file to the hh.exe program. You can find more information on HTMLHelp here. If you're targetting multiple platforms, you might be better off using JavaHelp, which is kind of similiar.
