Subject Re: Installing the IBO Help file in Delphi 7
Author alvarezje_mx <>
Let's see, here's what I've done so far:

Copied IBO40.hlp and the two small files inside to
the Delphi 7 help directory.

to d7.ohc

:INDEX InterBase Objects v.4=Ibo40.hlp
to d7.ohi

:LINK Ibo40.hlp
to d7.ohl

:Include ibo40.cnt
to d7.cnt

And, following your instructions, I modified the line inside
Changed from
:Include delphi6.ohl
:Include D7.ohl

Now If I drop *any* IBO component (it doesn't matter which one) to a
form and press F1, the Delphi help system always brings on the
same "help" entry:

TcontrolScroll Bar

Thanks in advance for any other hints,
