applying conditional tags dynamically

Jan 20, 2014 2:10 AM

I would like to know if there is any option to apply conditional tags dynamically to the output. This is the scenario. There is an application, which might have various options. These options will be integrated based on the customer requirement. For instance, Customer A might need some options which should be hidden form customer B and customer B need some options which should be hidden from customer A.  Now based on the customer requirement, is there an option by which the same HTML Help  can be configured for Customer A and Customer B since many of the options are common? Please note that t applying conditional tag has to be done on the output, and not before generating the HTML Help.

    Tags can only be applied to source but why are you wanting to apply this to the output? Applying the tags to the source and then generating on output for customer A and another output for customer B will give you exactly what you want.

    To be fair to Peter (and Adobe) that functionality DOES exist as Peter has described. Whether you have to make the amendments in the source OR the output, the problem still exists that you have to do something. In such a scenario I'd always want to have full control by changing the source. Just my 2p :-)

    Hi there

     

    I'm surprised Peter didn't point you to his page on customizing help.

     

    http://www.grainge.org/pages/authoring/customising/customising.htm

     

    Sounds like that may offer what you are looking for.

     

    Cheers... Rick

    @KKhanna

     

    With the tags in the output, I suspect the content would not be browser compliant.

     

    @Colum

     

    I  think that what was required was the developers having the ability define the build expression. Given that the help would likely change with each release, I cannot see how that alone would suffice and, like you, I would want to control that.

     

    @Rick

     

    That topic is about end users adding content and I don't think that is what is required here.

    The CHM question has been posted in a separate thread.
