[JAVAHELP] Hiding Favorites tab till used?

1 reply [Last post]

Is there a way in JH 2.0 to display the Favorites button in the help viewer
toolbar, but hide the Favorites navigator until the user presses that
button? The concern is that having four navigators looks fairly busy, and
since Favorites is empty unless the user adds something to it, we'd like to
hide it until the user actually decides to use it.

Thanks,
Paul

Humm. It would have to be disabled, but still there. I understand the
concept but it's kinda wierd given the nature of the navigators. That
would take a lot of extra work to make that happen (yeh yeh it's only
software).

In short there isn't a way to do it now. At least not easily.
