To Test Help Volume Access

These instructions assume you have created a help menu and attached it to a Help menu on the menu bar of a main window, as described in "Creating Help and Help Connections".

  1. Display the modules to be tested, if necessary.

    If you are not going to test the entire project, you will need to show the modules to be tested. See "To Show a Hidden Module" for instructions.

  2. Click Test Shown Modules or Test Project, as appropriate.

    Click Test Project to test the entire project. Click Test Shown Modules to test selected modules.

  3. Test help volume access by choosing one of the help volume chapters (Overview, Tasks, Reference, for example) from the Help menu.

    A help volume window with the appropriate help text will be displayed, if the help viewer (dthelpview) is accessible and the proper connection has been made to the compiled help volume. See "Creating Help and Help Connections" for instructions for creating help and making connections to it. Dismiss the help window when you are finished with it.

  4. Click Build to return to build mode.
