    Hi,

    I add an help provider to the form (inherited from radform) and set some form properties as below
    FormBorderStyle = FixedToolWindow
    HelpButton=True
    MinimizeBox = False
    MaximizeBox=False

    But i can not see the help button at the title bar. I am not sure if anybody see this problem or i made something wrong.

    Regards

    Hi Ahmet Hoso,

    Thank you for writing.

    I believe the help button is not present because the FixedToolWindow border style hides it. Try the same settings on a Microsoft form and you will see that the same thing happens. Please write back if you have other questions.

    Best wishes,

    Hi Victor,

    Sorry that's my fault. I don't want to see standart form border. 
    FormBorderStyle = None
    HelpButton=True
    MinimizeBox = False
    MaximizeBox=False

    And i can not see help button.

    Regards

    Hello Ahmet Hoso,

    This is also the standard behavior. You can not see the help button because it is located on the title bar. With FormBorderStyle set to None, the title bar does not appear and hence the button. If you want to see it you must set the FormBorderStyle to something other than None - SizableToolWindow or FixedToolWindow.

    Please do not hesitate to write back if you have other questions.

    Best wishes,
