The XLL+ Help Generator can be used to generate all the files of a Microsoft Help Project.
For a project MyAddin, the following files are generated:
|MyAddin.hpj||Help project file|
|MyAddin.cnt||Help contents file|
|MyAddin.rtf||Rich text file containing descriptions of each add-in function|
|helpids.h||Header file, to be included in the add-in's source file|
|setuphelp.cpp||Contains code to link the add-in to its help file. This code should be included in your add-in's InitInstance() event-handler.|
|readme_help.txt||Instructions for compiling and using the new Help project.|
The generator makes use of the following COM libraries:
The template files "helpstyle.dot" and "readme.tpl" must be located in the same directory as the script file.
The help generator utility HelpGen.exe can be found in the Bin/HelpGen sub-directory of your XLL+ installation. There is a short-cut to HelpGen in the XLL+ folder of the program menu.
