Hi Nick,

When you say "CLOSE" it, what actions do you mean you are doing to
"close" the standalone help system?

Do you mean by "close it", that you are shutting completely the browser
window in which you are viewing the help system contents?

(Note: I'm adding eclipse.platform.ua as the newsgroups for follow-up
discussion, as that newsgroup is targeted to discussions about the help
system.)

Best regards,
Lee Anne

Hi Lee,

yes, as you said, what I said "CLOSE" means shutting completely the internal
web browser window.

At the beginning, I was trying to write my own HelpWrapper that wraps class
org.eclipse.help.standalone.Help, and trying to add a window closing
listener on the internal web browser, but the problems are:
1. I can't find a way out to add the window closing listener, because
2. User can config and display the help system in an external browser, like
firefox, ie etc.

So, I am thinking that:
1. write a new class that always display help contents in internal web
browser, and
2. there's a way to listen the internal web browser closing event, and then
stop the help system
