ServerHelpFile Property

Visual Studio .NET 2003

The help file for the type library created for server classes in a project.

Object.ServerHelpFile[ = cHelpFileName]

Property Values

cHelpFileName
Specifies the name of the help file for the type library. By default, cHelpFileName contains the empty string.

Remarks

The help file for a type library is typically used to provide information about properties or methods in server classes when the type library is viewed in a class or object browser. Visual FoxPro includes the Object Browser, which makes it possible for you to view type library information.

A type library is created when you build a .dll or .exe that contains server classes. Visual FoxPro binds the type library with the .dll if you build the .dll on a machine running Windows NT 4.0 or later. If you build the .dll on a machine running Windows 98, Visual FoxPro does not bind the library with the .dll.

If you use the ServerHelpFile property to specify a help file for the type library, you can provide help for the properties or methods in the server classes from within a class or object browser.
