Dialogbox asking arguments for a tool.
« on: June 02, 2005, 07:56:52 am »
Here you can find a tool that can read the help files from the MSSDK including the platform sdk

for example by running
Code: [Select]

H2Viewer.exe /appid pellesc /helpcol "ms-help://MS.PSDKSVR2003SP1.1033" /index "HeapAlloc"

You can run only one instance of the program.  (with the /appid pellesc). and will search the PSDK for the keyword HeapAlloc.

Unfortunately I can see a way to pass as an argument a keyword in the editor or, as an alternative, a dialogbox that askk for the argument.

A syntax like $(Arg0) $(Arg1), etc for arguments in a dialog and $(Keyword) for a keyword in the text editor.

Thanks for the info. The best is probably to move all the Platform SDK help crap to an add-in. This way it's possible to use the selected word in the source editor, a dialog, or whatever.
