[JAVAHELP] JavaHelp V2.0 Queries/Issues

Hello Binky can you help with the following V2.0 queries/issues:

1/ I cannot print topics listed on the Favourites tab. A windows print
dialogue is opened but nothing appears on the print queue. I can print from
the Contents, Index and Search tabs. Is Favouries printing supposed to be
supported?

2/ My presentation includes a reims_icon tag. The V2.0
hsviewer does NOTdisplay the image but when I call the helpset from within
my application the image IS displayed. Is there a problem with the
hsviewer?

main_window
REIMS iSeries (AS400)
reims_icon

javax.help.BackAction
javax.help.ForwardAction
javax.help.SeparatorAction
javax.help.HomeAction
javax.help.ReloadAction
javax.help.SeparatorAction
javax.help.PrintAction
javax.help.PrintSetupAction
javax.help.SeparatorAction
javax.help.FavoritesAction

3/ I cant find any documentation on displaying the viewed topics history in
the V2.0 User Guide but stumbled across it while testing our helpsets (i.e.
click on back or forward and hold down the mouse button). But if you hold
down both mouse buttons when the back and forward buttons are active (i.e.
have topics to list) then the help window jumps between the back and
forward lists until you close the window.

Thanks.
Andy Wake.

This is a bug (4933497) that has been fixed in the V2.0_01. Basically
the FavoritesItems weren't acting like true TreeItems so the PrintAction
didn't print anything. Once they were normalized it worked fine.

Yep. It's a bug. Would you file a bug report on this. I'll work on
getting it fixed in V2.0.1

hsviewer doesn't use a HelpBroker so it doesn't set the image. It uses
it's own JFrame so the image doesn't get used unless we change the code.
I suppose it should work. If you file a bug I'll look into it. Possibly
for the next release. It would of course be a lower priority item.

There isn't a way to display them other than the Back and Forward
buttons. If you wanted to write a history navigator (we didn't feel that
it was necessary) you could do so with the HelpHistoryModel which you
can retrieve from the JHelp component.
