If the current Help system is HTMLHelp (or WinHelp), this displays the Help topic having an Alink tag equal to Keyword.

HelpKeyword returns False if the current Help system does not support keyword lookups.

 How to use DelphiVCL.Application.HelpKeyword properly?

In order for the Help to work properly, insert in the uses clause of your application the Vcl.HtmlHelpViewer or another unit that provides an interface to the external Help viewer to use. The Vcl.HtmlHelpViewer unit provides a Delphi interface to the HTMLHelp Windows native Help handling function. For C++, you need to include the HTMLHelpViewer.hpp header files.

For information about the native Help handling functions (HTMLHelp or other) and about the data passed to them, see the appropriate HTMLHelp topics in the MSDN Library.
