Microsoft Visual Basic .NET
Microsoft Visual Basic .NET is the successor of Visual Basic 6.0. Unlike Visual Basic 6.0, Visual Basic .NET is designed to work with the .NET Framework. The .NET Framework has built-in support for Microsoft Help 1.3 (CHM) files through the classes
HelpProvider. In order to use functionality of HTML Help beyond the functions provided in the built-in classes, you can use the class HtmlHelp from the file HtmlHelp.vb. The functions in HtmlHelp.vb demonstrate how to call the HTML Help control directly, and it can be easily extended.
Note If you are using the internal classes provided by the .NET framework in combination with associative links, you must use the hhctrl.ocx fix. For details please see the .NET Framework FAQ.
