Hi, I did a project using XLL add-in and thus could put the functions description and parameters. I would also like to add help for the task when I click on the link "Help on this function" that is the basis of the window "Function Arguments". Currently, clicking this link appears the message "No Help Available". How can I make this help?

Tks.

Hi Fabio,

You can use the HelpTopicId property of the AddinExpress.MSO.ADXExcelFunctionDescriptor class. The value of this property must contain the following:

HelpFile!TopicNum whereHelpFile is a standard Windows help file.

Hi Eugene, thanks for help.
I saw, including the help given by Sergey on the link "//www.add-in-express.com/forum/read.php?FID=5&TID=2872&MID=13815&phrase_id=1164260#message13815" and also read the text on the link "http://www.microsoft.com/communities/newsgroups/list/en-us/default.aspx?dg=microsoft.public.excel.sdk&tid=8683b132-c31b-4a4b-81f1-7fc5c57b3f57&p=1" and did all the procedures. However I could not help make it work. I have a question: where should be the .chm? It can be in any folder? If so, how the add-in to locate?
