Description

Determines if a Help Topics button appears on the button bar in the Help window. If a contents (.cnt) file is present, clicking the Help Topics button for the first time displays the Contents tab in the Help Topics dialog box. Thereafter, clicking the Help Topics button displays the tab that a user most recently worked with.

If there is no contents file, the Help Topics button displays either the default topic or the first topic in your help file.

The HelpTopics element corresponds to the "HelpTopics" field, on the Buttons sub-tab, on the Windows Help tab of the Media object.
