Are you saying the DHTML drop-downs are opened whether the found terms are inside them or not?
If the terms are found inside the drop-downs, I might think that behavior would be welcome.
After rereading my original post (written in some haste) I can understand your confusion.
The DHTML opens if the term is found inside. Thats new behavior in RH10, our RH9 output didn't behave that way.
Once folks get used to it I suppose it will be okay. First time I noticed it I thought all the twisties had broken again.
Does anyone know which of the wh*.js files controls WebHelp search?
whfhost.js is the most important one. Basically everything that starts with whf* has to do with search.
You might find my dissection of the WebHelp files useful: http://www.wvanweelden.eu/output-file/robohelp-9-and-earlier-webhelp (It's for Robo9 and below, but it may help you identify the correct scripts quickly. Robo10 is different but I havent described all those files yet.)
Power to the people brothers!
Some of our Help topics feature dozens of twisties, it looks odd when some of them appear open and some don't in the search results. I'm going to look into a way to disable this in search, but if anyone beats me to it (Willem) thats okay too.
It's your call but I would have thought that if it is only opening dropdowns with highlighted results your users will soon realise that. Surely that is better than seeing a topic with nothing highlighted and having to dig through the dropdowns, assuming they realise that is the logic?
