The InterBase CHM help is the help that is delivered with InterBase and responds to the Help button or F1 key from IBConsole. The help is in Microsoft Compiled HTML Help format, also known as CHM.

There are two panes in the Windows HTML Help viewer:

  • The left-hand side pane gives you access to the navigation features: Contents, Index, Search.
  • The right-hand side pane shows the current help topic.

Docwiki Has the Most Up-to-Date Content

We generate the InterBase help from a wiki: docwiki. You will always find the most recent and up-to-date help by visiting the docwiki. All InterBase users are invited to participate in the docwiki. You can create your own user account by clicking Log in \ Create account on any page in the docwiki.

In the offline CHM help, the footer of each page shows a link, Current Wiki Page: Click this link to access the current docwiki version of the displayed page.
