    DHTML Hotspot Drop-down Error

    twriter01
      I am receiving an error when I create a DHTML hotspot drop-down and try to preview topic in RH X5. The error is Syntax Error. Before this, I created the same type of drop downs successfully in the same project. But now those drop downs don't work either, and I get the same error. I'm not sure what has changed. I checked older html code that used to work against the newer drop down code, and they are the same. Thank you for any help!

          As a solution, I replaced my ehlpdhtm.js file with a previous version (through source control) and my drop downs are now working again. If anyone can explain why, I'd like to know. Thanks!

            Hi there

            While I can't explain why (maybe it's the phase of the moon? Sunspots?) I can tell you it's happened to me in the past. At the time it happened to me, I attributed it (correctly or incorrectly) to either my path being too long (I had many nested folders) or too many drop-down areas inside a single topic. (I had 25 or 30 different areas).

            Whatever the cause, mine began working when I changed the path to the ehlpdhtm.js file. I removed all ../../../ information and just copied the file to the same folder as the topic that needed it.

            Not sure if it helps any, but that's been my experience.

            Cheers... Rick
