I''ve been wondering about this for a while now... is it possible, with MSVC++, to "integrate" help files with the IDE? For instance, the DX SDK help file. If I need to look up a DX function, I have to manually open the help file and look it up in the index, instead of putting my cursor over the function and pressing F1. Also, it would be pretty handy to be able to use View Parameter Info and List Members, for DirectX functions and structures. That does not seem possible at the time. Is there any way this can be done? I''m looking into a mysterious "Use extension help" item in the Help menu, but I can''t really figure out what that is for, yet... Anyone?
