Using Help

Question:
I cannot get the WinHelp API to work. “Bad DLL Convention” but I appear tobe doing everything right (including correction to WinAPI help declaration).Any suggestions?

Answer:
You could try using the Common Dialog control. It will simplify your life a lot as far as API calls goes…you don’t need any with it. It is rather limited though. I’d suggest carefully looking over your code to make sure that everything is pathed properly (i.e. points to the right helpfile). Also, check both the declare and the call for typos.With this sort of question, it’s often best to include the code you’re having trouble with (just the particular section, not the whole project!). It can be a great help to troubleshooting such things.
