Example: Create a Pop-up Window

Using the HTML Help ActiveX control, you can create a pop-up window that appears when a user clicks a specific word, phrase, or graphic in a topic. This example is based on the TextPopup method.

The steps of the process are as follows:

  1. Write the text for the pop-up window.
  2. Insert the HTML Help ActiveX control in your HTML file.
  3. Create a hyperlink to open the pop-up window.


  • You can use this example with both uncompiled HTML files and compiled help (.chm) files.
  • This procedure cannot be used to create context-sensitive help topics that users open through an external program.
