Context-sensitive help for my .CHM help file

How can I create and use Context Sensitive Help?

What I need is to integrate my .CHM help file that I've created with HelpSmith with my application. For example, I need to display a specific topic within my CHM file from a form.

If you need to integrate a CHM help file with your desktop application, it depends on your development IDE that can provide built-in methods to operate with a CHM help file.

Or, you can use HTML Help API function directly. For example, you can search for the HTMLHelp() function in Microsoft docs:
