Welcome to the forum.
1 is answered in Snippets on my site.
Don't know about the second one.
He has found something that allows him to call the correct topic by filename.htm, but a call using the map# first opens the chm, toc displayed & correct topic selected (so far so good), but the topic is not displayed until the user presses the [Enter] key. Which strikes me as both novel and slightly weird.
That does sound odd. I'd suggest that the developer look at at a few of the following resources, which are among the best available on attaching HTML Help files to Visual Basic applications:
And there are quite a number of other resources listed here:
Note that all these resources describe how to use Microsoft's HTML Help API. In a situation like yours, I don't believe that there's a need to use a third-party (i.e., Adobe) solution; the Microsoft API provides the standard way to connect .chm files to VB applications.
Peter: Don't know how I missed it (last Friday pm)!
Pete: Excellent. My developer's using the MS API, and trapping [F1].
I think we can call this one closed.
Many thanks for your rapid responses this morning.
