There's not really anything you can do on the CHM side about this because, when specifying the dimensions and position of the help window, you are permitted to enter pixel values only. This is a limitation of Microsoft's design of HTML Help.
When calling the CHM from an application, you can use Windows API calls to adjust the size of the help window. (For example, I think this is essentially what Microsoft does with the online help for the Office applications.) The following page provides some sketchy information, but I think you'd probably need to hunt around the MSDN site for the full details:
Ok - looks like the programmatic route then.
Can anyone help with the following :
How do I call a DLL from within the CHM file ?
How (or can I) do it at startup - that is, before the window becomes visible ?
As I understand it you need to use the.dll from the calling application. There are security issues with calling .dll's fro a .chm rthat make it unlikely.
