Help Generator

Create help and user documentation for Visual Studio 2003 and 2005, Visual Basic 6.0 and Microsoft Access

Help Generator, a new time-saving way to add help and documentation to your applications

At the end of software development projects we have to make help and documentation. But we don’t get the time to do this properly. The end user is waiting, last bugs need immediate fixing. That’s why we invented the Help Generator. The Help Generator scans the application and automatically generates HTML files, screenshots and other elements needed to make the help and documentation. You only have to add the text.

The Help Generator has four areas: the generator, the help editor, a screenshot tool and help and documentation compiler.

The Help Generator scans the application and automatically generates HTML files, screenshots and other elements needed to make the help. The generator starts with a wizard in which you specify look and feel of the help (css, images with hotspots, etcetera).

Next you will be adding your explanatory text to the generated pages using the Help Editor. The Help Editor shows the contents tree on the left and a HTML editor with the selected page on the right. You can add extra pages or reorganize the contents from the contents tree.

The screenshot tool is used to add extra images or replace the generated ones you are not satisfied with.
