Can I configure links from context help to open in Help Browser? [message #473689] Wed, 07 May 2008 11:16 Go to next message

Hello,

I have the following issue with help system.

When using Eclipse 3.2.x, when the user press F1 for a Wizard the help
system opens context help content in a "docked" help view. The context
help contains links to further explanations. If the user presses a link to
open a topic I have seen two behaviors:

(1) the link opens in the Help Browser with navigation tree on the left
and search box etc.
(2) the link opens in same narrow "docked" help view.

I have see this behavior both in different versions of Eclipse 3.2.x and
3.3.x Respectively reusing the same plugins the behavior is transfered to
my application also. In 3.2.x the links were opened in Help Browser but in
3.3.1.1 are opened in save docked view.
I am not sure what is causing it, probably some setting of some of the
help plugins. You can see this in eclipse File->Export (press F1, follow a
link of a topic). Probably different users will report different behavior
based on the plugins they have.

I want always the links to open in help browser (1) window as the content
of the help does not appear well and is not designed for narrow window
size.

How can I control this? Where are defined the settings of the help system?

Regards,
Mladen

Hi Mladen,

Is it that you want the initial F1 keystroke to open the help browser
window also?

Or do you still want the initial F1 keystroke to show the first content
in the docked help view, and then all links in that initial content will
all open the help browser window?

If it is OK with you that the initial F1 keystroke opens the help
browser window and not the docked help view, then I think you can
control that by setting the always_external_browser help preference to
true. It is described in this online help page:
http://help.eclipse.org/stable/index.jsp?topic=/org.eclipse. platform.doc.isv/guide/ua_help_setup_preferences.htm

Setting always_external_browser=true will force use of the extenal help
browser window, even for F1 keystroke.

Hope this helps,
Lee Anne

Nope. F1 opens the docked view and this is ok. But then when in the docked
view is followed a link it is viewed in the same docked view. Imagine the
link contains a screenshot. Then this screenshot is badly visible.

Example: open Eclipse, File->Export (opens the wizard). Press F1 (opens
the docked view with links). In the About section press the link "Using
the Export Wizard". It opens in the save view (on my Eclipse 3.3.1.1) and
looks very bad as it contains image that does not fit the small area and
the user has to scroll, etc.

I have see in Eclipse 3.2.1 (ok my specific copy probably ;-) that the
information of the link "Using the Export Wizard" opens in the Help
browser and is visible well.

I can reproduce it in my Eclipse 3.3.1.1 by right click on the same link
and selecting "Open in Help Content". But I would like this option to be
the default opening, which was on mine Eclipse 3.2.1

Probably it is a setting of some of the help plugins, but I do not know
which one. My eclipse plugins are as follows:

Eclpise 3.2.1

org.eclipse.help.appserver_3.1.100.v20060602.jar
org.eclipse.help.base_3.2.1.R321_v20060822.jar
org.eclipse.help.ui_3.2.0.v20060602.jar
org.eclipse.help_3.2.1.R321_v20060920.jar
org.eclipse.help.webapp_3.2.1.R321_v20060803


Eclipse 3.3.1.1

org.eclipse.help.appserver_3.1.200.v20070510.jar
org.eclipse.help.base_3.3.1.v20070813_33x.jar
org.eclipse.help.ui_3.3.1.v20070726_33x.jar
org.eclipse.help_3.3.1.v20070726_33x.jar
org.eclipse.help.webapp_3.3.1.v20070823_33x

Respectively this behavior is transfered to my application when I export
it as it uses the plugins.

Basically I am looking for a way to define "Open in Help Content" as
default opening option of links.
Which each post I actually clarify even for myself hot to explain it :)

Hi Mladen,

OK, I looked at your File->Export example and I see what you mean.

In your original posting, you wrote:
"If the user presses a link to open a topic I have seen two behaviors:
(1) the link opens in the Help Browser with navigation tree on the left
and search box etc.
(2) the link opens in same narrow "docked" help view. "

Can you point to an example of (1)? I mean, can you describe how I can
get to a dialog like the File->Export example where the link actually
opens in the Help Browser from the docked help content?

I'm only seeing the behavior of (2), which is why I am asking.

The help preference that I thought controlled this is not behaving as I
thought it would behave, so I'm trying trial-and-error to see what is
happening.

Best,
Lee Anne

Hello,

I was again testing my Eclipse 3.2.1 but I could not reproduce it today.
Nevertheless my application based on 3.2.1 is reproducing it.
(unfortunately I cannot provide the application)

What I noticed was the following setting in
plugin_customization.ini

org.eclipse.help.base/open_in_browser=true

I made a search and could not find it in Eclipse 3.4, 3.3, and back to 3.1
As part of the code is not mine and the original developers do not work
for us anymore I cannot ask them where this flag comes from.

Is it possible to be some very old flag before 3.1 and now not to be
supported anymore?

Regards,
Mladen

Hello,

I was again testing my Eclipse 3.2.1 but I could not reproduce it today.
Nevertheless my application based on 3.2.1 is reproducing it.
(unfortunately I cannot provide the application)

What I noticed was the following setting in
plugin_customization.ini

org.eclipse.help.base/open_in_browser=true

I made a search and could not find it in Eclipse 3.4, 3.3, and back to 3.1
As part of the code is not mine and the original developers do not work
for us anymore I cannot ask them where this flag comes from.

Is it possible to be some very old flag before 3.1 and now not to be
supported anymore?

Regards,
Mladen
