About Context-Sensitive Pop-up Help

Help topics for context-sensitive pop-up help are text-only. Unlike window help topics, which are HTML files that you include in the [FILES] section of your project (.hhp) file, pop-up help topics are stored in a text file that you include in the [TEXT POPUPS] section of your project.

Using HTML Help Workshop, help authors can define the basic attributes of a pop-up window. More advanced attributes can be defined by a developer.

For example, in addition to writing code to enable the context-sensitive pop-up topics, a developer can modify the foreground and background colors, font family, font size, and margins of the pop-up topics.

Note  Pop-up windows can also be used in HTML Help topics, to create pop-up glossary definitions, for example.
