I've used iFrames on a very limited basis to display RH topics. The RH topics were VERY small and basic, though.
G and Leon,
Thanks for responding. Any ideas on how I would do this?
I saw in an RH help topic called "Calling Functions from Web Pages" that the basic syntax for calling a pop-up looks like this:
function RH_ShowHelp(hParent, a_pszHelpFile, uCommand, dwdata)
with the meanings behind the parameters explained in the topic, but I'm guessing (again! - ha!) that this wouldn't be the case for an iFrame. Instead, I would point directly to an HTML topic that would need to be placed in a folder outside the build, then use the code described on the iFrame demo site to call the topic.
Essentially, I'd be making "dead end" pop-ups where a user could see the popup, read it, close it, but they wouldn't be able to print it and they wouldn't be able to navigate to the other parts of the help once they're in the pop-up. Unless... the "Show" link would display in the topic content... Am I on the right path or am I totally wrong?
An iFrame is not a popup, however. Actually, it's a lot like this reply box, where you set its size to accomodate at least a good portion of whatever content you're presenting.
See the W3C Tutorial for an example and a list of options (border, height, source, etc.).
