Examples

En el ejemplo de código siguiente se muestra cómo usar la clase HelpProvider para mostrar ayuda contextual en un formulario que contiene cuatro campos de dirección.The following code example demonstrates using the HelpProvider class to display context-sensitive Help on a form containing four address fields. En el ejemplo se usa el método SetHelpString para establecer el texto de la información sobre herramientas de la ayuda.The example uses the SetHelpString method to set the Help ToolTip text. Cuando use el botón ayuda contextual y haga clic en el cursor de ayuda en un campo de dirección, aparecerá la información sobre herramientas de ayuda con el texto especificado.When you use the context-sensitive Help button and click the Help cursor on an address field, the Help ToolTip appears with the specified text. Al presionar la tecla F1 con el foco en un campo de dirección, se muestra el archivo de ayuda mspaint. chm porque la propiedad HelpNamespace se ha establecido en mspaint. chm.When you press the F1 key with the focus in an address field, the mspaint.chm Help file is displayed because the HelpNamespace property has been set to mspaint.chm. Se llama al método SetShowHelp para cada control de dirección para identificar que tiene contenido de ayuda disponible.The SetShowHelp method is called for each address control to identify that it has Help content available.

Remarks

Cada instancia de HelpProvider mantiene una colección de referencias a los controles asociados a ella.Each instance of HelpProvider maintains a collection of references to controls associated with it. Para asociar un archivo de ayuda al HelpProvider, establezca la propiedad HelpNamespace.To associate a Help file with the HelpProvider, set the HelpNamespace property. Especifique el tipo de ayuda que se proporciona llamando al método SetHelpNavigator y proporcionando un valor HelpNavigator para el control especificado.You specify the type of Help provided by calling the SetHelpNavigator method and providing a HelpNavigator value for the specified control. Proporcione la palabra clave o el tema de la ayuda llamando al método SetHelpKeyword.You provide the keyword or topic for the Help by calling the SetHelpKeyword method. Para abrir la ayuda a un tema concreto, la palabra clave debe pasarse con el formato TOPICNAME. htm.To open Help to a specific topic, the keyword should be passed in the form topicName.htm.

Para asociar una cadena de ayuda concreta a un control, utilice el método SetHelpString.To associate a specific Help string with a control, use the SetHelpString method. La cadena que se asocia a un control mediante este método se muestra en una ventana emergente cuando el usuario presiona la tecla F1 mientras el control tiene el foco.The string that you associate with a control using this method is displayed in a pop-up window when the user presses the F1 key while the control has focus.

Si no se ha establecido la propiedad HelpNamespace, debe utilizar el método SetHelpString para proporcionar el texto de ayuda.If the HelpNamespace property has not been set, you must use the SetHelpString method to provide the Help text. Si ha establecido HelpNamespace y la cadena de ayuda, la ayuda basada en el HelpNamespace tendrá prioridad.If you have set both HelpNamespace and the Help string, Help based on the HelpNamespace will take precedence.

HelpProvider llama a los métodos de la clase Help para proporcionar la funcionalidad de ayuda.HelpProvider calls methods on the Help class to provide Help functionality.
