Subject:Context-sensitive Javadocs to HTMLHelp? From:lani -dot- hardage -dot- vergeer -at- documentum -dot- com To:techwr-l Date:Mon, 1 Nov 1999 10:47:2
We are delivering online help for a developer toolkit that is written in
Java and is called from IDEs (e.g. Visual Interdev) running on NT only. Our
developer audience will want context-sensitive help, and HTMLHelp is
faster/has more features than JavaHelp.
Has anyone implemented this before? Is there a relatively painless way to
put Javadocs into HTMLHelp? And which Java class calls the
context-sensitive application (in this case, HTMLHelp)? In other words,
where do we call HTMLHelp and pass the map ID to HTMLHelp?
