    MSVC Online help?

    Hi guys,

    I'd like to use Visual C 6 to develop Symbian 2.0 apps. One thing I'm missing is the ability to get "online-help" (a popup window) by pressing F1 when a certain function/class is marked.
    Is there some way to add this?
    Did I miss something?

    Thanks in advance!

    So I guess there's no solution for this?

    I don't know if the automatic search is possible. But at least you can generate yourself a shortcut icon / key.

    Goto "Extras - External Tools" and create a new entry. Use the following settings:
    Command: hh.exe
    Arguments: D:\Symbian\6.1\Series60\Series60Doc\start.chm
    Directory: D:\Symbian\6.1\Series60\Series60Doc
    Well, and of course replace the path settings with your own directory structure. I just used my settings as example.

    You can now add this new external tool to a toolbar ( use "Extras - Customize - Toolbars - New" to create a new one ). Under Extras - Customize - Commands you can select the corresponding external command and drag&drop it to a toolbar.

    Oh I forgot to say that my previous post describes the setup for .NET; VS 6 might be a little different.

    To be able to access devlib.chm from Visual Studio .NET do the following:

    - Download keyHH.exe from http://www.keyworks.net

    - Create an external tool with keyHH.exe as the executable

    - Arguments should be "-MyHelp -#klink $(CurText) C:\Symbian\7.0s\Series60_v20\Series60Doc\devlib.chm". Modify the path if necessary.

    Then whenever you select a word and run the external tool, devlib will be opened at the selected topic.

    This techique can be used in most text editors and IDEs.

    Hope it helps.
