Does anyone know how to create an *.htp (help file)? Any information will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

There is most of the information you need in some earlier posts in the newsgroup. There is also a link (posted by Kevin I think) to the Microsoft documentation on help files.

In summary:

A help file is basically an HTML file, but with a change to the way anchors work, and with some extra tags that tell the help program how to organise the file.

There is a meta tag that names the contents anchor. There seem to be two variations mentioned, so best to use both.

There is what looks like a comment tag (but isn't) that separates the sections. The comment contains the word PEGHELP. These section tags are essential because they stop the help program reading to the end of file every time it displays a section.

The contents anchor has to be called MAIN_CONTENTS (not MAIN-CONTENTS).

Links have to include the filename as well as the #anchor bit. This is the only bit that makes the file incompatible with a normal web page.

To include the help file in the standard Windows CE help on the start button you put a shortcut to it in the \Windows\Help folder.

For help file info see showhelp() on pages 4 and 2 of this forum.

If you need any more info or an example file for you to change to suit your own needs then email me
