Show Help and Minimise and Exit

Show Help and Minimise and Exit

Post by 11Oppida » Sat, 19 Feb 2005 19:26:02


Hello.

It seems that in order to get the help (?) button to show in the top right
of a form, the minimum and maximum properties need to set to false. I would
like to have a help, minimise and exit button on my form. Is there any way
to do this?

Many thanks for your assistance.

What you want to archieve is not supported. Typically this is be done by
providing a "What's this?" menu command in the application's "Help" menu.

Hi 11Oppidan,

Thanks for your posting!!

Just as Herfried pointed out, this can not be implemented in Winform.
Actually, this is a limitation of Win32 code not the Winform, in win32, we
can not have a window with both help button and minimize/maximize buttons.
And the workaround is adding a help menu for the form.

Hope this information makes sense to you.
