Tabs in the Compiled HTML (CHM) Files

In cside.chm and nav_install.chm, you can look for help on the following tabs:

  • Contents

  • Index

  • Search

  • Favorites

Contents

The Contents tab contains the table of contents. The table of contents lists all topics in the Help. The Help is divided into books that contain related information.

Index

The Index tab contains an alphabetical list of keywords. You can browse the list or type the word for which you are searching.

Search

You can use the Search tab to search for a word or phrase in the Help. You can search for patterns by using wildcard characters. Use the wildcard character "*" to specify zero or more characters in the search string. Use the wildcard character "?" to specify any single character in the search string. For example, to search for topics in the Help that contain either the word "instream" or "outstream", you can enter "*stream" on the Search tab. This pattern matches words that end with stream. To search

NoteNote

If you enter more than one search word, then all topics that contain one or more of the words are found. You can narrow a search by typing quotation marks around the search words, such as "filter pane", to only find topics containing that particular phrase.

Favorites

When you find a Help topic that you want to use again, you can add it to your list of favorites. While the topic is displayed in the topic pane, click the Favorites tab, and then click Add. Later, you can select the topic from the list on the Favorites tab, and then click Display.
