Check the build error messages, they now have intelligent error
messages, with potential suggestions to the problem.
Once you get used to it, the debugging and development environment has
improved leaps and bounds. The object browser pays for the upgrade, in
and of itself. Those who have used MS Interdev will be more familiar
with the look and feel.
Hi George ,
CTRL+F1 is mapped to the Dynamic Help window. To bring up the context help, use the F1 key instead.

What ever happened to context sensitive help. In VS6, I
count highlight a function name, press CTRL+F1 and have
help on the topic come up. Now all I get is this 'Dynamic
Help' which is about as useless as a chocolate fireguard.
What were Microsoft thinking of? Seriously any pointers
on how to get useful help out of the IDE would be
I have a problem using context sensitive help from my .Net
eVB gave us the HelpClick event for each form and using
this you could use
the CreateProcess api call to call peghelp with your file,
CF does not expose a HelpClick event.
Does anybody know something different I could use?
