    MS Sandcastle/MSDN Lib-like look?


      I have just installed RH 7 and am learning my way around. I understand that the latest version of ComponentOne's Doc-to-Help has a Sandcastle plug-in to generate web help that looks like the MSDN Library. Does RH offer anything like that?

      Would it be a skin that RH would use to accomplish this "look"? (still learning, here! )

      Has anyone created a skin like this? any ideas?

      Thanks in advance!

          Hi Kathy

          Although I've heard of "Sandcastle", I'd be hard pressed to tell anyone what its help looks like. Because of that, it's difficult to say whether a skin may accomplish the goal of making WebHelp look that way. Skin or otherwise.

          Can you please post a screen capture of what you are seeing and wish to approximate? If you can do that, perhaps we might be better equipped to offer suggestions.

          The forum software doesn't allow images unfortunately, so you will need to place the images elsewhere and give us a link to view them. One such avenue is at this link.

          Cheers... Rick

            Hi, Rick!

            Ditto on being able to say what Sandcastle help looks like! I had a request to make an app's help "look like the MSDN Library" ( http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/default.aspx). ComponentOne's marketing materials made it sound like that is what Sandcastle is/does.

            Bottom line, I downloaded the MSDN.Net skin on the Exchange site from 2002 and tweaked it as I think was needed. I am waiting to see what the requester thinks of the look.

            Thanks for responding!
