Generator offers a new way to add help to an application.
making help files from scratch by hand the generator scans the
application and produces the required files for you. This can
save up to 80% of time required for making a help file.
Generator makes the creation of help integrated with your
application and software documentation a streamlined process
consisting of three steps:
The first step the generator creates all files required by
scanning the application:
- HTML pages describing the application
- Help project files including contents and index
No help authoring tool on the market today has this
important time saving step!
In the second step you will be adding you explanations to
the generated pages using the Help Editor. The Help Editor
shows the contents tree on the left and a WYSIWYG HTML
editor with the selected page on the right. (Alternatively,
you can use any editor you like such as FrontPage,
Dreamweaver,... for the task.) You can add extra pages or
reorganize the contents from the contents tree.
The help generator project consists of a folder containing
the HTML files and images. After completing the pages using
the help editor publish:
- HTML Help for your Visual Basic application
- User documentation in Word
- Technical documentation in Word
- Content for your website
