      // Construct the HelpProvider Object.
      this->HelpProvider1 = gcnew System::Windows::Forms::HelpProvider;
      
      // Set the HelpNamespace property to the Help file for 
      // HelpProvider1.
      this->HelpProvider1->HelpNamespace = "c:\\windows\\input.chm";
      
      // Specify that the Help provider should open to the table
      // of contents of the Help file.
      this->HelpProvider1->SetHelpNavigator( TextBox1, HelpNavigator::TableOfContents );
   }

//Declare the HelpProvider.
internal System.Windows.Forms.HelpProvider HelpProvider1;


private void InitializeHelpProvider()
{
    // Construct the HelpProvider Object.
    this.HelpProvider1 = new System.Windows.Forms.HelpProvider();

    // Set the HelpNamespace property to the Help file for 
    // HelpProvider1.
    this.HelpProvider1.HelpNamespace = "c:\\windows\\input.chm";

    // Specify that the Help provider should open to the table
    // of contents of the Help file.
    this.HelpProvider1.SetHelpNavigator(TextBox1, 
        HelpNavigator.TableOfContents);
}
