I am investigating using RoboHelp for producing out Help
files/user Guides and training manuals as it will eliminate
repetative work and keep versioning control. However our
application is a J2EE based product on an ASP model. Can we produce
a seperate site for the Help files produced by Robohelp and have
context sensitive help in the application open up a URL in the help
files via a reference tag.
ie The application has a code eg. called "creating order",
how would this be passed to the Robohelp files to bring up the
Any help would be appriciated.
Won't this be a web hosted application sitting on a server?
If so I don't think you want a CHM file as the help, the correct
format would be WebHelp. Why? See the topic below which explains
why CHM files don't work on a server without hacking the registry,
which your customers might not appreciate.
