Merging Search in HelpSets?

1 reply [Last post]

We have succeeded in merging different HelpSets with our "master"-helpset,
but the search only works for the "master"-helpset, it does not find any
hits in the subhelpsets...why?

I have tried to remove the data-tag in the sub-helpset (is said that in the
jhug) and also tried to put:
mergetype="javax.help.SortMerge"

in the -tag but nothing works.

Anyone who knows what to do?

I also would like to have the Index to merge, now it only put a-z in the
subhelpset after a-z of the master.
Of course I would like to mix together so all a,b,c ... is mixed.

eh? Where in the jhug? That would be an incorrect statement. Each
subhelpset has to have define where the search database is.

Define the merge type to be "javax.help.SortMerge".
