I have implemented the HelpButton property in Form. I also implemented the 
support for it in Control.cs. The HelpRequested event is now raised as 
required. (I hope you weren't gonna handle the WM_HELP event yourself) and 
you can tie into that to get the request.

The patch you sent was different for every single line of the file which 
made it pretty unusable. You might want to check your patches before sending 
them (the zipped version wasn't any better).

On your font question, I don't have any context, where your 'style' variable 
comes from (and why it is an int instead of type FontStyle), but your 
example was missing brackets, and possibly a cast, depending on the type of 

If 'style' is of type 'int':
int style = 0;
if ((style & (int)FontStyle.Bold) != 0) {

If 'style' is of type 'FontStyle'
FontStyle style = FontStyle.Regular;
if ((style & FontStyle.Bold) != 0) {
