[JAVAHELP] Window sizing for JavaHelp 1.1.3

2 replies [Last post]

I am using RoboHelp HTML X3 to create JavaHelp. Does anyone know whether I
can change the window/frame sizes for the JavaHelp file from RoboHelp, or
are window sizes controlled by the method that calls the help file.

Thanks,
Alan

In V2.0 you can do that. Unfortuantely, V2.0 isn't supported by RoboHelp
at the current time. If you are using the DefaultHelpBroker then you can
call dhb.setSize(Dimension size).

Using JavaHelp 1.1.3 this can only be done programmatically.
To achieve this, you can use the free JavaHelp 1.1.3
extension library called S7Help (with this lib you can
even make the last window location/size persistent between
sessions), see
http://www.software7.biz/FAQ/javahelp-questions.html

Alternatively you can use JavaHelp 2.0 which allows
location and window settings in the HelpSet (.hs) file.
