I have a .chm file that i have integrated into a C++ program,
the idea being that when i press F1 the help is displayed at the
relevant topic. If i open the .chm file the browse sequence works
fine, however if it is opened using the F1 key from within the
application it does not work. I have copied and registered the
hhactivex.dll so i know that this is not the problem. However if i
click on the default topic on the contents page the browse sequence
appears, and then stays visible on all pages navigated to after
this. I have tried openning the default page first within the
application and then open the correct topic but this does not work.
The browse sequence only appears if i manually click on the default
topic after the help has openned. Does anyone have any ideas on how
to fix this?
I have been having the exact same problem for a couple of
years, and my developer tried the exact same solution (call the
Introduction topic, then call the correct topic for the F1). As
Kathryn said, this does not work. Maybe by giving this topic a
bump, someone will see it and propose a solution? Back in 2005,
(Macromedia) support suggested I check the forums, and I did
search, but did not post an inquiry.
I do have more than one window defined, but I'm fairly sure
only one is used (I inherited this huge project). You definitely
get the same size help window either way (and those different
definitions are different sizes). Thoughts?
P.S. We are definitely installing and registering
HHActiveX.DLL. I know that's a common omission.
