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.
FIGURE 7.3 Setting an application's Help file with the Project Properties
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.
