Using an old WinHelp project, I compiled the project into an
HTML output (.chm file). The main help system converted just fine
but I am trying to figure out a way to convert my existing "What's
This" topics* from my WinHelp project to my HTML Help project,
without redoing each individual "What's This" topic. Anyone have
any ideas please??? Thank you.
*The odd thing is, the "What's This" help composer was never
used for the WinHelp project. Each "What's This" (yellow popup box)
was created by creating a new topic and the developers mapping the
topic's map id to a specified field within our application. Does
that help or complicate things anymore? Any ideas are much
For starters, I think Microsoft has all but abandoned using
What's this help these days. However, when they provide .CHM help
for the apps they do, I believe that even Microsoft uses the older
WinHelp format for topics used with What's this help.
