Creating Context Sensitive Webhelp Using Robohelp 9

Nov 18, 2013 10:32 PM

I want to create a Context sensitive Webhelp - one help topic for one page/function for web application. I'm using Robohelp 9 with Team Foundation Server 2012. I also have MSSCCI provider installed. I will be using unique ID (Map ID) or unique window names for mapping.


Below are the details about what I have and my requirements:


I have multiple module projects in Robohelp 9 integrated with Team Foundation Server 2012. I want to merge these projects to create one tree structure which will display all the functions same as application.


Which are the files that I need to give to developer to integrate Web Help?

What are the steps for linking and generating Webhelp in merged projevct?

Can we do merging of ToC in merged project and extract the  ToC (.hhc file) and use it in all modules projects just like merging chms and extracting ToC?

What is the simplest way to do create the Webhelp?

Can we use a single Robohelp project for large number of topics to avoid merging?


Please suggest as soon as possible.

    First take a look at Merged Help on my site. It gives detailed information about creating merged webhelp.


    Can you use a single project for a large number of topics? Define large. It's a mix of topics and graphics. My experience is Rh can, not will, get slow around 4/5000 topics with a some graphics.


    You give the generated help and tell them to put ALL the files on the server.
