To add to what Geoff is saying, all Blue Sky controls is the What's This?
help generation utility that creates mapped files for context-sensitive
help. Blue Sky doesn't have anything to do with WinHelp CS help mappings
otherwise. You can create popup topics in RH, then map them on your own.
Unless PowerBuilder itself offers no methods for mapping a control to a help
topic, you could still do the CS help. RoboHelp's utilities have nothing to
do with it.
