Help Search on the Menu Bar

Ever wanted to add a "Search for Help on..." item in the menu bar? Here's the secret:
 'Declares and Constant for Help Menu 
Declare Function WinHelp% Lib "User" _ 
(ByVal hWnd%, ByVal HelpFile$, ByVal helpcode%, _ 
ByVal helpdata&) 
Declare Function WinHelpByString% Lib "User" _ 
Alias "WinHelp" (ByVal hWnd%, ByVal HelpFile$, _ 
ByVal helpcode%, ByVal helpdata$) 
Const HELP_PARTIALKEY = &H105 
'call the search engine in winhelp 

Sub mnuSEARCH_Click ( ) 
Dim R% 
R% = WinHelpByString(Me.hWnd, App.HelpFile, _ 
HELP_PARTIALKEY, " ") 
End Sub
