    A link to MSDN or some quote from the MSDN will also do.

    As far as I can remember context sensitive help can be achived by passing a parameter to the help file when calling.

    Here is what you need to do

    1. Make all the Controls that you want a context sensitive Help Id property On
    2. WinHelp(pWnd->m_hWnd, AfxGetApp()->m_pszHelpFilePath, HELP_CONTEXTMENU,(DWORD)(LPVOID)m_nHelpIDs);

    m_nHelpIDs are the IDs of the control

    Also you need to build the hlp file with the m_nHelpIDs included.

    Thanks
