Using the Freeware Edition of HelpNDoc, you can create a Compiled HTML Help Format (CHM) table of contents in a mater of seconds, either by freely typing it, importing one from an existing CHM help file or using HelpNDoc's interface to position the topics. This article presents the steps involved to easily and rapidly create a complete and structured table of content for your documentations.
The HelpNDoc help authoring environment can export flash SWF and FLV files in the generated CHM and HTML documentation. To do so, Flash files must first be included in HelpNDoc's library, a placeholder for various files related to your documentation, then inserted in one or multiple help topics.
