DynamicHelp for WinForms improves the usability of your application by offering immediate and relevant Help, as it is needed, right within the application. A separate Help system doesn't need to be opened and searched.
Software developers can map topics to controls at design time, or Help authors can use authoring mode — a special run-time mode with a simple interface — to do the mapping themselves. No additional code needs to be added once DynamicHelp for WinForms is integrated with the application.
The developer can specify a way for Help authors to quickly activate and deactivate the authoring mode for topic mapping. Any method can be used — like a keystroke combination, an environment variable, a .config file, or so on.
Add any .NET control to your form, then drag-and-drop the DynamicHelp component to your form. An extender property is added to the .NET control allowing you to easily link to a Help topic.
The Help displayed in the DynamicHelp for WinForms Help window can be selected and copied to the Clipboard to be pasted into other applications.
You have complete control over how the Help topic is triggered by the end-user. Display context-sensitive Help corresponding to the control that is being hovered over, to the control that has the focus, or programmatically set up how the Help topic is triggered.
