    RoboHelp HTML v7 - How to call WebHelp from a DLL?

    suzennis999 Level 1

       

      We are unable to call WebHelp (uncompiled HTML generated with RoboHelp HTML v7.03.001), from our DLL. We found this link: http://help.adobe.com/en_US/RoboHelp/8.0/RoboHTML/WS5b3ccc516d4fbf351e63e3d11aff59c571-7f4 3.html.

       

      Near the bottom, there’s a comment:

       

      // must use top level parent (for the case where m_hWnd is in DLL)

       

       

       

      This is what our developer says: “My struggle is (a) figuring out what that is (finally got the code to compile and the C++ function it recommends using returns a null), and (b) making whatever I hand to their function work. Watching in the debugger, the call to ShowHelp (inside the RoboHelp file I included in the project) returns a “success” status code, but no help ever appears.”
