Creating Help ID map files
In Dr.Explain, you can assign numeric identifiers (Help ID) and text aliases to each help topic to create a context-sensitive help file for your software application. You can then create a map file to include in your application's source code. Dr.Explain can generate Help ID map files in three common formats: .h (C++ header files), .vb (Visual Basic map file) and .inc (Object Pascal and Delphi map files). ).
What is a context-sensitive help file?
This file maps your manual pages to program interface elements. Each control has its code or name. The same values are specified in the section properties in the documentation.
Thus, with the help of the Microsoft HtmlHelp API functions, the program can open a help file exactly on the section associated with a particular element of its graphical interface.
For example, the user, being in the main window of the application, when calling the context help, will see the CHM-manual in front of him, which opened precisely on the page that describes that window.
