Linking to WebHelp topics

You can create context-sensitive calls to WebHelp (web HTML) from your application or web pages with normal URLs using the syntax explained below. These calls can be made locally, across networks or across the Internet.

Field-level popups are not supported in WebHelp, they can only be implemented with HTML Help (CHM). The JavaScript popups supported in WebHelp can only be used within your help, you cannot make calls to them from your application or web pages.

HM2Go mini server for local WebHelp

If you want your WebHelp to be opened locally without a server (for example WebHelp on CDs and DVDs), Help+Manual has a special mini server that you can distribute with your help for better performance. See HM2Go - mini server for local WebHelp for details.
