I am using v sandcastle helpfile builder gui. General FAQ section refers to add image to projects using "AdditionalContent" property. I need help in locating that property. Further help documentation says that the property is deprecated and conceptual content is preferred method.

Any help is greatly apprecieated !

Thank you,

The AdditionalContent property doesn't exist in v1.8.0.0 onward.  Add the image file as an item in the project explorer and set it's build action to Content (that should be the default).  If you want one, create a folder in the project explorer window to put it in first and add the image to the folder.  The rest of the information is the same regarding the XML comments and path information.

Thank you Eric. That helped a lot, and am able to see images in the generated chm file. Infact, i can include now an <img src ... /> tag in namespace summary propery and load image on the namespace summary.
