I've read the instructions by Greg Minter on calling merged Webhelp topics using Map IDs. However, since that article has not been updated since 2006, I am still wondering whether anyone has successfully used this method with RH7 and IE7.
OK, I'm answering my own question. (Hopefully this will redeem me for some of the stupid newbie questions I've asked so far and which have been very patiently answered by the gurus--mostly Peter G.)
I just tested context sensitivity on a merged webhelp project created in RH7 and using IE 7 and it works!!!! Yahoo!!!
**I've only tested the RHShowHelp() function using the HH_HELP_CONTEXT parameter
**I've brought up the default topic (which is the first topic in the first merged project--the one that is redirected to from the parent project).
**I've brought up a specific topic with no nav pane based on map ID.
As mentioned, I followed Greg Minter's instructions from 2006 posted on PG's site. However, here are some clarifications/changes to those steps (please forgive me if anybody already knew this stuff):
***You don't have to manually copy and paste the Map IDs from the Map ID (*.h) files of the child projects into the Map ID file of the parent project. Just generate the parent and child projects as usual and the references are automated.
***[Concommitantly] You don't have to manually place the Map ID (*.h) file in the output folder (mergedprojects\projectnnn), as he describes.
