Eshwar,

All the info you need is in your RoboHelp manual. Are you implementing
stand-alone or context-sensitive Help? If stand-alone, the developer
just needs to program a control in the application (link, button, menu
item, whatever) to call the Help file in a new browser window. Your
developers should know how to do this. If implementing context-sensitive
Help, you should have been working with the developers a lot sooner,
developing map IDs and so forth for you to use in your Help topics and
your developers to use in the code to call the right topic from the
right point in the application. But, if your developers have a list of
map IDs for you to use, get it and start plugging them into your topics.
If they don't have a list of Map IDs, use RoboHelp to generate one and
hand that to your developers so they can include them in the code.
Again, the RoboHelp manual covers this process.

Good luck!
