Using Robohelp HTML x5
I created a CHM file and have a .Net application that opens a specific topic (using the Map ID #) when the Help butt on is selected. This works fine. However, once the specific topic is open, I am unable to navigate to any other topic using the Table of Contents which is open on the left side of the help window screen, though any hyperlinks in the individual topic work fine. Should I be able to navigate the Table of Contents after calling the CHM file via .NET?
This sounds like a problem with the application code that opens your Help file, as it should certainly be possible to use the TOC. I think the correct syntax for passing a context integer to a .chm file from a .NET application is something like this:
Help.ShowHelp(Hwnd, "c:\help_file.chm", HelpNavigator.TopicId, "3");
where "c:\help_file.chm" is the full path to the Help file, and "3" is the map number of the topic that you want to display.
Here are some other resources for software developers on how to pass context Help calls from a .NET application:
