    There are at least 2 issues with displaying help:
    1. It's not HelpID but HelpContextID property of the appropriate object.
    2. You must know Topic ID from your help project. To view help file in
    design mode you must have a utility such as WinHelp, RoboHnelp or tool like
    HelpScribble which I personally found the absolutely simplest and most
    inexpensive way to build a help file in standard Windows format or HTML
    format. Go to this site and try it for yourself: www.jgsoft.com.
