INTEGRATING HELP INTO YOUR SOFTWARE APPLICATION - CONTEXT SENSITIVE HELP 
How to integrate Winhelp, HtmlHelp or JavaHelp into your software application? It depends on the development tool / programming language you use. C++ MFC, Delphi, Visual Basic, Visual C, Borland C++ Builder, Java, even Microsoft Access, Visual Objects, Clarion, APL, Visual FoxPro are some programming tools used by our customers. 
You can use both .HLP and .CHM for context sensitive Help, this is fine for almost any programming language. The Context-ID (or Topic ID) for each page is simply the page number (the one you see in the box at the bottom center).

Delphi 
The most recent Delphi edition does natively support both .HLP and .CHM, with context sensitive features. Please see the development tool manual! 
For Delphi 3/5 HLP is fine, for CHM you can download this unit (click here), and add it to the “uses” section. Then use “Project >Options” to assign the name of your .CHM file as Help File name. Then insert the page number you want to call in the “HelpContext” section of each control (as you did for WinHelp).
