Title: What help systems are used with poide?
Post by: TimoVJL on December 12, 2017, 02:14:03 pm
I am just curious ;)

What help systems are used with poide?

If you have Visual Studio, there (https://forum.pellesc.de/index.php?topic=7250.msg27566#msg27566) is frankie's Add-In for it  8)

Or Help2 Viewer (https://forum.pellesc.de/index.php?topic=5162.msg19862#msg19862) is for H2 help.

For online MSDN (https://forum.pellesc.de/index.php?topic=4442.msg16521#msg16521)

I use MSDN and a web search engine (except Google)

I downloaded VS2012Documentation.iso (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=34794) 2,7 GB, extracted some mshc-files (500 MB in disk) and made a viewer for them.
Without any installations.

From catalogs (https://services.mtps.microsoft.com/ServiceAPI/catalogs/) some of F1 keywords are still missing from Desktop help files.

v2Windows Desktop App Development_en-us_vs.85, 322 MB download, fix some F1 keywords.

Thanks

I already know that i hardly find any experts to helping me from this site.

You are too advanced for us, Timo ;)

Having programmed my own implementation for viewing the M$ crap offline, I admire what you are doing, but I have several personal projects waiting... keep up the good work, and keep us posted. Thumbs up!

Any comments ? public or by just PM ?

Well, you should know by now that there is only a very limited number of regulars here in the forum to begin with.

And then on top of that, everyone has different interests. I for one have yet to see any necessity of checking the latest M$/VS help files. I don't need it for my main GUI projects, and as far as Pelle's C is concerned, I am using it to 99.99% for small (and at least one not so small) projects where I simply had no need for that either, yet...
