how to create Index in the .chm help file?

Oct 7, 2009 at 10:22 AM


I write the conceptual topics for the .chm help file using MAML; the automation tool - Sandcastle Help File Builder.

I cannot find out how to add content to the Index (one of the tabs of the left navigation panel).    

Thank you in advance!!

With MAML conceptual topics, the index keywords go in the entry for the topic in the content layout file.  Select the topic's entry in the content layout file editor and look at its properties.  You'll see a Keywords property where you can add index keywords.  See the Topic Files help topic for more information.
