Full text search and JavaHelp 2.0

1 reply [Last post]

I am using JavaHelp 2.0 with JSDK 1.4.2_05 and dynamically merge helpsets.
I saw that the highlighting as well as the scrolling problem (chopping
images) has been solved by switching JSDK, but i still have the following
problem;

When i perform a full text search, i get the proper results, but when i
click on the result i see the highlighting of the search word but the
correct html page isn't loaded, like it can't be found. If i go to
the 'index' tab and select the right page and then return to the 'search'
tab the words are correctly highlighted.

Anybody have a clue what is going wrong ?

Thanx in advance,
Mark

Most likely when you built the search database you didn't build it in
the correct directory relative to the helpset file. Thus the results
that are returned don't work. To verify this use jhsearch and type in a
term that you know exists. You'll see the results and a file
description. That file has to be relative to the helpset file. If it
isn't then the search results won't be found.
