>F1 and SHIFT F1 were both doing the same thing: the help for the dialog

>I fixed this problem by handling the following two windows messages:

>I actually invoke the CSHContextHelp() method myself. I did not think I

>Now I am down to the following problems:

>1.
>When I hit SHIFT F1 the cursor changes to the Help cursor (Question Mark
>and Arrow) and the What's This Help is displayed for the control that
>has the focus. The only thing that should happen is that the cursor
>should change. I can't figure out why the Help window is displaying. How
>can I stop this behavior??

>2.
>In another dialog when I hit F1 a window flashes that displays "no topic
>found for this ID", then the actual Help window for the dialog displays.
>It's acting like there is no topic but yet it finds it and displays it
>appropriately. Has anyone seen this behavior before, and how can I fix
>it??

>THANKS for any HELP on the above issues.
