Dear All,

Can someone please tell me how to access/launch a specific page of a CHM help file.


I mean I want to provide context sensitive help kinda on my page, so that on click of Help button the specific page of CHM file is opened.

Thanks,
Sumit

Also I read somewhere on oracle website, that may be its not possible through Swing.
If that is the case in real, then can I get some other type of Help system like JavaHelp or HLP file to work in the same manner.

My basic requirement is that, the Help system should be launched from various screens. And on click of help from each screen the help file should be launched with the specific topic/page of the overall help system being displayed.

You can achieve all these feature using Java's own Help API itself.
Have a look at javax.help package for the details you need to know.This link will point you to the materials you needed.
