eclipse standalone contextsensitive help

Hello everyone,

lately we are trying to implement contextsensitiv help for our eclipse
standalone help system. So far it works great. The generated context is
given to the displayHelp-method and we always get forwarded to the given
site we wanted to.

Unfortunately this works only with website pathes without ID extension. If
we try to jump to a specific point of a html-document (via displayHelp(
“/examplePluginFolder/example.html#ID123”) it just moves to the site, but
doesnt link to the specific point(ID) of the document.

Is there any way to fix this problem? Since we really like to link to a
specific point of our help documents we would appreciate any kind of
solution.

We also noticed that Index-Files are using this kind of ID Management as
well, to find a specific point of a html document. So html based links in
our documents are working fine, we just have problems with Application
calls via displayHelp().

thanks for any help,
Steffen

Hi Steffen,

Can you try using the escape sequence character %23 instead of the #
character?

Such as:
examplePluginFolder/example.html%23ID123

I think that the cause of the symptom might be the same as Bugzilla
entry 104213, and the discussion says that %23 works for showHelpTopic
parameter. So I'm hoping that it will also work for displayHelp().

For reference, here's the URL to the Bugzilla entry:
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=104213

Hope this helps,
Lee Anne

I'm not sure why that didn't work for you. Using Eclipse 3.4 I created
this context help file (I used the plugin with view template which in
3.4 contains context help and used the context help editor to add
another context) and it linked to the right part of the document. Can
you try this and see if it works, and if it doesn't work on your version
of Eclipse try it on 3.4.

Thanks for your fast replies, here an little update:

Lee Anne: I tried replacing # due to %23, but unfortunately it had the
same effect. As soon as we call displayhelp(
''examplePluginFolder/example.html%23ID123'' ); we get forwarded to the
right site, but it aint moving to the specific anchor ID123.

Chris: I just replaced the old Help-Plugins with the new ones from 3.4 and
now it works perfectly fine.

Thanks to both of you!
Steffen
