  wwHelpConfig The Config class maps to the various Help Builder IDE configuration settings. These settings map to the settings found in wwHelp.ini. In addition to the properties on this object you can also dynamically access any values via the Indexer: string s = (string) Help.Config["ClassOpenPath"];
