    Close Window Control in RoboHelp

    VitastaAdobe Community Member

      I have added a Close button using Insert > HTML help Control > Close Window. It places the Close button in the topic. I generate the help, and when I view it, the Close button is no longer there. I am in RH 9 and working with FM 10 files in RH. Why does the Close button not display in my local help?

          What is your help output? WebHelp, AIRHelp, FlashHelp, Microsoft HTML Help, etc

           

          This is an HTML Help control. Seems to be present and work fine if I compile a CHM file. But if I generate WebHelp, it's missing.

           

          However, it's easy enough to script if you want. Just add a JavaScript command of window.close() to a link or a button. But don't be surprised if it fails to work a lot of the time. Closing a window is a troublesome thing. Just do a Google search for JavaScript window close to see what I mean.
