Automatically Hiding the Navigation Pane

You can design your compiled help (.chm) file so that the Navigation pane is automatically hidden when a user clicks outside of the HTML Help Viewer. This allows the user to see more of the screen when working in a software program. When the user clicks inside the help topic, the Navigation pane is reopened.

To see an example of a help file that automatically hides the Navigation pane, you can download and view the help topics for the Help Viewer from the HTML Help Web site.
