This is somewhat off topic, as it has less to do with RH than
it does with a more generic documentation question. Our software
has it's own API that we allow users to use to create their own VB
The various supported objects, methods, properties, events
and so forth are contained in a type library (a .tlb file). Over
the past several years, I've been maintaining HTML Help
documentation for all this information by hand. I would like to
automate the conversion of the .tlb file into .htm files.
Does anyone else convert .tlb files into .htm documentation
and then into RH? What tools do you use to accomplish this?
Processes to get the output to work within RH?
I've been looking on the web and have found some software
utilities/packages out there that support the conversion of the
.tlb file into .htm files. I was hoping there would be something
freeware or low relatively low cost (under $100) that is stable and
has a good feature set.
I've mainly toyed around with a freeware utility called
which isn't bad (being freeware) for what you get, but it has some
bugs, isn't supported, and it's difficult to customize the final
output. I'm also looking into a high cost commercial package called
X, but would really like to find something less expensive.
