I am using Doc to Help version 2012.1.0.703
and I am creating nethelp 2.0 as my target
this produces an .xml file with the context IDs.
The people in R&D say they no longer get the context IDs I have set
so I guess the guys in R&D have to update their plug in – where is a link to that so I can pass it on to them?
This is not clear from your description what happened. NetHelp 2.0 always used and still uses context.xml to store context IDs. Probably you used NetHelp Classic (where context IDs are really stored in a JS file) and now you switched to NetHelp 2.0?
All information you can find in the documentation, you can look here:
I don’t know how you use context sensitive help, so I can’t help more, but information from two topics above and if necessary from other topics should be enough for your developers.
Let me explain
The control or plug in that R&D uses no longer senses or reads help files
I compiled using 2012.1.0.703 of doc to help
does R&D need to update their control or plug in as well to the same level of version
and if so where can they download it from
We don’t have any plugins for context sensitive help in Doc-To-Help, so I don’t know about what control or plugin you write. If this is our control, for example, DynamicHelp please let me know. If they use their own control they just need to modify it.
You didn’t answer question from the previous post. Did you use NetHelp Classic before and did the problem appear only after upgrading to NetHelp 2.0?
Yes this is the dynamichelp control
and yes when i used nethelp classic everything was fine but i also upgraded my doc to help before moving to help 2.0 in order to take advantage of the right to left improvments
Sorry, but DynamicHelp control doesn’t support NetHelp 2.0 format yet. You should either to return to NetHelp Classic or switch to HTML Help.
what control does?
(that component one supplies and supports of course)
None. DynamicHelp is the only one control to help with displaying context sensitive help, but it doesn’t support NetHelp 2.0 yet, by default it supports only NetHelp Classic and HTML Help. In future the DynamicHelp control will get support of NetHelp 2.0, but I can’t say for sure when it is done.
As soon as NetHelp 2.0 is a set of HTML files it can be easily displayed for example in a WebBrowser control, you can look at our context sensitive samples for C#.
