Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0 was the last release of Visual Basic that runs without the Microsoft .NET Framework. Visual Basic 6 has very little support for Microsoft Help 1.3 (CHM) files; the functionality it provides is limited to the built-in HelpContextID property found for standard controls. In order to use other functionality, you can use the class HtmlHelp.cls provided with the example. The functions in HtmlHelp.cls demonstrate how to call the HTML Help control directly, and it can be easily extended.

A working example for Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0 can be found in the Help Producer distribution at the following location:

C:\Program Files\MGTEK\Help Producer\Examples\Programming\Visual Basic 6

To build the example, do the following:

  1. Open the project file HtmlHelp.vbp in Microsoft Visual Basic 6.
  2. Build the project, and run the executable.
