          I would assume that you would create WebHelp for it - but what are you really asking? How to launch it? How to call specific pages (i.e. CSH)?

            I guess my question is where can I find step-by-step instructions for how to integrate into an MVC web app. The instructions and tutorials I find don't have anything specific to MVC.  We have no problems generating the files out of RoboHelp.  But at a level deeper, yes I am looking to find out

             

            1. How to call a specific page in the native RoboHelp output files. 

            2.  What type of linkage I need and supporting binaries to get the answer to number 1 to work correctly.

             

            Thanks again.

              Well, WebHelp is just a bunch of HTML pages with some Javascript wrapping around them - launching the help is as simple as calling the main page (usually called index.htm, but can be named anything you want). Calling specific pages is called Context Sensitive Help (CSH) and is addressed in the RH help files. There's a bunch of API calls that RH supports - look for the \CSH\ folder in your RH install to see the different types. See pages on Peter Grainge's website (grainge.org) or Willam van Weeldon (wvanweelden.eu) on calling WebHelp.
