Sorry, it made sense in my little head.
By "everything works" I meant that help does come up to the proper topic when you press F1 at a from in the application; I just can't figure out how to specify the target window.
Basically, I have my main help project opening in the tri-pane window with the browse sequence, table of contents, etc. When they push F1 to open the context sensitive help from a form in the application, I want to use a smaller window without all of the bells and whistles. I have the two windows defined in my project, but I can’t figure out how to specify the target window in which the help should open using the Help Provider in Visual Studio. I was hoping someone here would know where to put the window call and whether you need to use Target=”WindowName” or some other syntax.
Did you ever figure this out? I'm having the same issue and haven't found a solution yet.
In the application, I have designated the .chm file as the HelpNameSpace and selected topic as the helpNavigator property mapping to the .htm that correlates to the form.
I see that TOC is also a HelpNavigator property option, but I can't figure out what to use in order to get it to work.
Unfortunately I never did figure it out. I ended up creating a separate help project for context sensitive help and using a different default window than my main project. Sorry.
