Stored procedures
The compilation options allow you to define the help system generation settings. There are various settings:
  • Name of the help file to generate.
  • Compiler to use.
  • Compilation settings for the selected compiler.
Name of the generated help file
The name of the help file generated by WINDEV can be different from the name of the help system. For example, in a multilingual application, different help files will be created and generated from the same WINDEV help system (WDH file).
In this case, the name of a help file can contain several elements:
  • the base name of the help file. The name specified in the help system properties is suggested by default: on the "Modification" tab, in the "Help system" group, click "Description". It can be modified in the generation settings.
  • the suffix of the generated files. This suffix can correspond to:
    • No suffix: the name of the generated file is the base name of the help file.
    • Number of the language used in the files. This number is used by the Nation function.
    • The language identifier (US for English).
Compilation settings
The compilation settings depend on the selected compiler.
