    Popups in projects migrated to WebHelp

    TheMarcus7 Level 1
      We have a help system that is currently delivered as a set of merged .chm files. I've been tasked with exploring what would be necessary to migrate this to merged WebHelp and the material on Peter's website has been invaluable.

      We currently use two types of popup, one is the standard version that you can make in RoboHelp 7 by selecting 'Display in auto-sizing popup' or 'Display in custom-sized popup'. The other kind is powered by javascript. For example:
      JavaScript:showHelp('ms-its:reference.chm::/glossary/def_bdf.htm>$global_glosspop')

      Up to now, my experimentation has shown that only links to topics in the local project can be turned into popups in WebHelp. Is this correct? Is there a way to make the javascript type popup to work in merged webhelp? Or even the regular type.

      Thanks
