Topic: Help system for VC++ application with Acrobat Read
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 53622

We have VC++ Windows application. We have hlp windows help file and acrobat pdf file, which has actually the same contents. We want to get rid of hlp file and use acrobat reader to display the contents of .pdf file instead. Basically what I need is to be able to launch free Acrobat Reader to display contents of the pdf file on the certain page from VC++ MFC application.

To implement this solution I am planning to use DDE and

named destination. My question is how to automate process of association of menu and dialog ID ( from resource.h) with named destination of PDF file? How to extract list of named destination from PDF file? Can I use any other approach to implement this solution besides DDE?

Thank you in advance
