We aare using Robohelp 10 to develop and generate our WebHelp system. This output is being integrated into our browser-based application that has been developed using Python, and the the user interface is rendered as .dtm files.
Now, the issue is that when after integration on the Webhelp, the help container is displayed with the context sensitivity, but without the left-pane (having the search and index tabs). We looked into the RoboHelp api, and understood that if the left-pane is to appear by default, then the context sensitivity will be lost and the default help topic is displayed always. Is this correct?
Can someone please help us ?
I moved the discussion to the correct forum.
Your post must have slipped through. Sorry about that.
Your observation is not entirely true. When you use CSH, the navigation pane is hidden by default. But with a window, you can also show the navigation pane.
In RoboHelp, create a window definition in the Project Set-up pod and make sure to set it to tri pane format. Then call the help with the window name (the API file should tell you how to do that) and you should be fine.
For all the details on context sensitivity, see www.wvanweelden.eu/articles/context-sensitivity-webhelp-and-flashhelp
If you really always want to force the navigation pane regardless of how a file is opened, see www.wvanweelden.eu/blog/2012/08/01/always-show-webhelp-navigation-pane
