Hi from a newby, who is making progress, but would appreciate some advice.
I'm creating JavaHelp for a Java application that is just starting development - good news - I'm involved early on!
I have previous experience using RoboHelp and HTMLHelp Workshop, so I know what I'm in for.
I've been trialing the pre-release version of HelpBreeze 3.0 for this job.
We will probably want to 'improve' the presentation of Javahelp, but it'll be a while before the programmers get to the Help interface. However, I want to be able to demonstrate a prototype to prove I can control the output.
I created a window called "Simonz" with just one navigation button.
It sort-of works a little - encouraging, but frustrating.
Here is the presentation bit from my hs file:
... and here is part of my TOC xml file
If default is true, both topics appear in 'Simonz' window.
If default is false, both topics appear in a default window.
Simonz window does have my custom Back button, but the size and position of the window are ignored.
I can't disable the Favorites tab.
The JavaHelp demos (idedemo.jar etc.) can be opened from Windows (XP) with Javaw, but my trial.jar cannot (I have to run it from within HelpBreeze).
Any advice much appreciated.
