You can display a specific topic of an HTML Help (CHM) file through a command line call.
The Command Line Format
The format of the command line is as follows:
hh - is the HTML Help executable file in Windows.
HelpFileName - the actual HTML Help file whose topic should be displayed.
TopicFilename.htm - the filename of the topic to display, which is located inside the HTML Help (CHM) file.
Note: To generate the filename of a specific help topic, HelpSmith uses the topic's textual Id as the filename, and the HTML file extension as defined in the project options.
To get the filename of a topic in HTML Help Viewer, right-click on the topic's document, and then click Properties in the popup menu.
#Anchor - an optional parameter specifying the name of a bookmark within the topic.
The following command line will display the topic "IDH_Topic20.htm" of the "MyHelpFile.chm" help system.
