HelpProvider in Visual Basic .NET

Tags: VB.NET, VB 2008, VB 2010, VB 2012, VB 2013

This lesson describes the HelpProvider control


The HelpProvider displays help for the controls, and can be associated with a control. Then, if the user sets focus to the control and presses the F1 key, the HelpProvider is going to display help for the control. It can display either a small tooltip containing a help string, or will open a help file.

To assign a help string to a control at design time, you should use the Properties window ("HelpString on HelpProvider1" property)


Or programmatically:

    HelpProvider1.SetHelpString(Password, _
         "If you change the password, don't forget to email the student.")
