    specify the location of js files in Help folder

    Steve Ewing
      When I generate my WebHelp file every topic has the following added:
      <script type="text/javascript" language="javascript" src="whver.js"></script>
      <script type="text/javascript" language="javascript1.2" src="whproxy.js"></script>
      <script type="text/javascript" language="javascript1.2" src="whutils.js"></script>
      <script type="text/javascript" language="javascript1.2" src="whlang.js"></script>
      <script type="text/javascript" language="javascript1.2" src="whtopic.js"></script>

      Developers are requesting that I specify the location of js files in Help folder so each line would include src="help/WebHelp_en_CA/ as follows:
      <script type="text/javascript" language="javascript" src="help/WebHelp_en_CA/whver.js"></script>

      I know I can make the change manually (need to do it after every generation) but is there a setting where I indicate this so it is part of the generation process.

          RH puts in the relative path. That is the way it works so anything else carries a risk of breaking the help. Does it work the way they want it?

          There is nothing built into RH to do that. Why would there be?

          I cannot see any point in this quite unnecessary change.

            Thanks Peter
            Thats what I thought. The help is for a web application that has context sensitive access to the help file. This is the third project and we have had no problems to date with how RH built the files. The programmers that I deal with never made any similar requests but it is being turned over to another group as part of a hand off from a development project to an on-going program. The only issue I can see that they might have a concern with is they are very sensitive to security issues around java.
            I will pass on the potential that their modification may in fact break the help file.
