    Redirecting to a function within a DLL

    ecoulyn Level 1
      In the online Help file I created, I have a custom button that links to an external web page and opens in a separate Browser. I've currently got a redirect.htm file that triggers this action.

      Instead, I'd like to link to a function within a DLL file. This function opens a dialog box that displays our knowledge base. I can't link directly to the knowledge base because product mgmt doesn't want the address to display in the browser.

      Does anyone have any ideas how to do this?

      Thanks so much for your help. Everyone who has replied to my past queries has been a great help!

          I should say first of all that I am not a programmer so I quantify what follows with a large pinch of salt. However what you are trying to achieve is similar to using a context sensitive help call. The only difference is that it is coming from the application rather than a user. So I'm wondering whether you could set-up a context sensitive help call within the DLL using a mapid?

          Amm willing for others to pipe in and tell me I'm way off the radar.
