So, according to this NI document
It should be possible to link a .chm file into your executable so that a user can choose Help > Help for This VI. Well, I followed the advice, and no dice. Here is my LV2017-64bit attempt. In the development environment, it works fine, but in the executable Help for This VI is grayed out. The .chm file is a poor excuse, and unrelated to this VI, but never mind that, it's not the problem here.
We are a group of students from the University of Cambridge who are developing a new data connectivity system for researchers like us, its up at https://rinocloud.com
It currently integrates with LabVIEW, Matlab and Python. The plugin will point your data directly at our secure storage where you can automatically add metadata results for easy and fast retrieval. Weâ€™re also rolling out plotting features for presenting the data, collaboration features for project teams and an integrated lab book.
We are looking for new users, researchers like us, to help us to get feedback from our product. Youâ€™ll be able to directly influence the product development so that you get a data system that is useful for you.

I have been asked to implement some sort of online/integrated help system into my executable. I have not done anything like this before. (In the past I have just written word docs and published them on the internal network)
I was wondering what the best practices were for doing this. A few ideas I had were:
Building .chm files and then linking them to controls and menus in my application. (not sure exactly how to do this).
Using tip strips to supply documentation.
Using a pane on the window to display help messages when requested or when hovering over certain controls.
Linking to a Wiki on the corporate network.
I would prefer a solution that was mainly 'on demand' so advanced users would not be bothered by obtrusive help messages.
Have you implemented built-in help? What worked best for you?
Thanks for your ideas!
