SET HELPFILTER Command

Visual Studio .NET 2003

Enables Visual FoxPro to display a subset of .dbf-style Help topics in the Help window.

SET HELPFILTER [AUTOMATIC] TO [lExpression]

Parameters

AUTOMATIC
Automatically removes the criteria specified with SET HELPFILTER after the Help window is closed. Including AUTOMATIC is identical to issuing SET HELPFILTER TO immediately after the Help window is closed. You must place AUTOMATIC directly before TO lExpression.
lExpression
Specifies a logical expression used to filter Help topics. Only topics for which lExpression evaluates to true (.T.) are displayed. lExpression typically contains a name of a field in the help table.

Remarks

You can only set a filter for .dbf-style Help only. You cannot set a filter for graphical Help. For more information, see Creating Help Files.
