Instructions provided describe how to create an [ALIAS] file for geoprocessing toolboxews/tools and use it to create a compiled help system (CHM). Each compiled help file (CHM) requires a single [ALIAS] file. This [ALIAS] file contains a textual reference to each toolbox/tool. Enter each text string on a separate line.
The first portion of each line is the same textual ID found in the [MAP] file. This value connects both files and ultimately connects the application to the compiled help system.
All [ALIAS] files follow the format below:
IDH_ + <tbxname/toolname> + =ms-its: + <CHMname> + ::/ + <HTML filename>
The following is an example:
The <tbxname/toolname> is a variable describing the toolbox or tool. It does not need to be the exact name as the toolbox/tool, it only needs to match the variable used in the [ALIAS] file. The examples above uses the toolbox/tool name for clarity and easy of use.
