Setting Help Files at Design Time

The easiest way to include Help with Visual Basic is to identify the Help file at design time. This is done through the Properties window for that project, as shown in Figure 7.3. To reference Properties for a project, choose Properties from the Project menu in the development environment.

On the General tab of the Project Properties dialog box, the name and path of the Help file will go under Help File Name. If the *.hlp or *.chm file will be in the same directory as the application, it is not necessary to include the full path to the file. The application will use the same search rules to find the file as other Windows applications. Visual Basic will let you specify only one Help file for the application. To use more than one Help file, you will have to change Help files at runtime.
