    How to achieve resize image effect

    Douglas_Campbell Level 1

      Can anyone tell me how to achieve this effect with image resizing in RH, as the images do at the link below? I cannot find the method in the RH Help.

          Hi there

           

          Sorry, but RoboHelp does not offer a method to achieve this. Unfortunately that's a huge hint that Adobe isn't using RoboHelp to develop those pages.

           

          If that's the effect you are after, you will need to roll your own with some JavaScript that does a hide and show on text and images.

           

          One way you might achieve it with a single image would be to insert the image *TWICE* on the page. Then scale one pretty small. Take the full sized image and tuck it inside a Dynamic HTML drop-down. The net effect would be that the user would click to see the full sized image (revealing the DHTML drop-down) and the smaller version would be "pushed" farther down the page.

           

          Cheers... Rick

            Interesting. It would explain why I've been unable to achieve so many of the stylistic effects they use in their Help system. What do you think they use to create that Help then?

             

            Thanks for the ideas. Not sure I want to fiddle too much with code that someone else surely can't maintain later. But the DHTML effect does sound like a pretty simple workaround.

              Yeah, I'm unsure exactly WHAT editing software they use. Might be something internal. A quick glance at the page source mentions "LiveDocs" but that may just be some obscure internal reference.

               

              We have been after them for a long while to eat their own dog food and use RoboHelp to maintain the help!
