Default How to open a particular page in chm file using c#


I am working in a c# desktop application.I want to open a particular page in
the CHM file when the user pressed F1 key according to the opened form.
Eg. When a user is in a Form Purchase Order then when he presses F1 key then the help
page of the form Purchase Order should open directly.

How can I get the desired operation?

Assuming that you are the author of the CHM file, you should have access to the Topic IDs for the topics in the CHM file. Associate the Topics IDs with the control (Form is one of them) for the help to navigate to the right help page.

Use the HelpProvider control as the starting point. You can hunt for details on this control in MSDN to make the 'help' work.

Hope this works for you.
