I have context-sensitive help in a Windows-based application involving
Help buttons on several dialog boxes. Each button is mapped to the
specific help topic ID number. The question is does the WinHelp compiler
change these ID numbers each time the project is compiled? In other
words, if I add or delete a topic or topics, do I then have to re-map the
links from the buttons to the (new) ID number?
Thanks in advance,
