SUMMARY

FoxPro for Windows uses the Windows-style Help system by default. However, if you prefer, you can use the .DBF-style Help system. To do so, enter the following command in the Command window:

SET HELP TO FOXHELP.DBF


Pressing F1 or choosing Contents from the menu will then open the .DBF-style Help system.

To return to the Windows-style Help system, enter the following command in the Command window:

SET HELP TO FOXHELP.HLP


To permanently change to the .DBF-style Help system, add this statement to your CONFIG.FPW file:

HELP=FOXHELP.DBF


REFERENCES

For more information, see the "SET Commands" section of the "Installation and Configuration Guide." There is also a "Customizing Help" chapter in the "Developer's Guide" that explains how to create a personalized Help system. The FoxPro for Windows Distribution Kit (DK) includes a "Help Compiler Guide" to assist you in creating a personalized Windows Help system.
