Thank you very much Rick. The reference is very helpful. Our developers used the call method of URL to the main page of help and appended a "#" along with the htm page of the topic to link to the specific page. This works fine in IE but not in Firefox. the "#" is translated to an escape character and it fails to load the page. Have you had an experience with this type of linking and a possible recommendation?
Having gone through this little exercise recently, I asked our developer to share his knowledge with the forum. Here's his reply. Good luck!
<a href='#' onclick="RH_ShowHelp(0, [location of your help file] >[new window name]', HH_HELP_CONTEXT, [your map id])">Help</a>
You can find further documentation on the RH_ShowHelp call inside the RoboHelp_CSH.js file.
Azi is wanting to use URLs, not map ids.
The # symbol works with Firefox as well.
Hello everyone. Thank you for your help. I'm still having problems with making the links work in Firefox. The developers mentioned the javascrip file may work but I'm not clear how to icorporate it in the help. Can Wrier501 expand on how they did it? I am going to add map IDs for topics. Where exactly do we input the commands mentioned in the posting from Writer501? Thank you.
Thank you Rick. Our developer thought the scripts somehow need to be included in the Help. If I'm not mistaken we need to include the two scripts in the installation package when the build engineer is packaging the software and can include the scripts (as plugin?). The build engineer builds the install (uses installshield) for the software and includes the wehelp files as part of the install wizard. If my assumption is correct, can you give any pointers that I can share with the build engineer? Thanks.
