In my little list of things to remember, I found the following advice. (Rick's suggestion I think)
Open the .HHP file, under the section : [OPTIONS] check what the Language= setting says.
It probably isn't Dutch.
Hope this helps,
Almost forgot to add. You may wish to amend the line to read:
Language=0x409 English (United States)
While this may aid in having the window display properly for you on your PC, I'm unsure of the effect when the .CHM would display on a PC where it was configured for Dutch. I suspect that without the line, it would probably show what you expect to see on the Dutch PC. In other words, test with caution.
Thanks for your help.
I had changed the Language and .LNG file, the problem is that i cant make the title say anything other than 'HTML Help' in the output window. I don't think its a language probelm, just that the project may have become corrupted somewhere in translation, but I don't know where else to change the window caption!
Any other ideas?
Tried both the above suggestions and its still returning 'HTML Help' as the output window title instead of the title I want...
I appreciate your help though.... I think there is something very strange going on here!
What was your default layout when you created the new window? Make sure it was Microsoft HTML Help.
HTML Help is pretty picky with the language settings. You'll see the Dutch window title only when compiling for the Dutch language (note the Language setting in the project's HHP) and running on a Dutch OS.
The most secure way is to have your developers programmatically set the window title when the help window is opened from the application.
Captiv8r's solution seem to have worked the best ( I have just obtained a Dutch OS to test on) ... so I thought I would let you all know. I replaced the language string in the .hhp file to Language=0x409 English (United States), and it seems to have resolved the problems, I just wasn't sure if it would create other problems instead!!!
Anyway- I have a feeling it has something to do with the 'ë' character which is in this line when you set the language to Dutch- could be a bug perhaps?
Thanks for all your help and time!!
