To display context-sensitive field Help as a popup, rather than
displaying the main Help window (for Windows 3.1), you must substitute
the HELP_CONTEXTPOPUP command in the Help call. Use this command in place
of HELP_CONTEXT or HELP_KEY commands, for example.

Remember, also, that any topic you call using this method must be
formatted as a popup topic (i.e., you cannot have a non-scrolling region
defined, etc.). If you normally describe a dialog box by means of a
segmented hypergraphic, your topics should already be set up to work just

Good luck!
