I've set up a customization plugin and use plugin_customization.ini to
configure my Infocenter. I've set topic_css to use a CSS I have in my
customization plug-in.

With the content plug-ins, if I don't have content associated with a TOC
entry, Eclipse generates a mini-TOC and displays it in the content frame,
which is okay, but it doesn't access the CSS in the same way the regular
content pages do.

For example, in my implementation, the content pages access the CSS in the
following way:

<link rel="stylesheet"
href=" ../content/PLUGINS_ROOT/com.citrix.proddoc.ICbase/CSS/book.c ss "
type="text/css"></link>

Where com.citrix.proddoc.ICbase/CSS/book.css is what I set topic_css to.

The Eclipse generated pages, however, try to get the CSS in the following
way:

<link rel="stylesheet"
href="../content/PLUGINS_ROOT/PRODUCT_PLUGIN/book.css"
type="text/css"></link>

It's looking for the CSS in the wrong location. Does anyone know where I
can set the value for the Eclipse generated pages or how I can set
PRODUCT_PLUGIN?

Okay, it appears that the Eclispe generated content is being controlled by
nav_css, instead of topic_css. I think this is a bug.

Hi Mike,

I did a Bugzilla search for 'css' on Eclipse-Platform-User Assistance,
and found this entry:
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=205050

Are you using Eclipse 3.4?

From that Bugzilla entry, it sounds like there is some customization
option "nav_css" that you can set to use your CSS to get it applied to
those Eclipse-generated content topics.

I see it listed in the Product customization topic in the Eclipse help
(under the topic_css customization preference):
http://help.eclipse.org/ganymede/index.jsp?topic=/org.eclips e.platform.doc.isv/guide/ua_help_setup_preferences.htm

Hope this helps,
Lee Anne

Thanks, Lee Anne! Yes, I discover that nav_css works for generated content.

We are also looking at using a CSS for print preview. I noticed the print
preview tries to use "print.css" I didn't see an attribute that contols
the CSS for print preview. It doesn't use topic_css, nav_css, or
disabled_css. Just for kicks, I tried print_css, but it didn't work either.

Hi Mike,

I recommend that you open a request for enhancement to have a help
preference for print.css. It seems a parallel use case to the other CSS
files. If it is straightforward to implement, and the Eclipse UA team
has the time resources to do it, it could get into 3.5, and they might
be able to also do a patch for Eclipse 3.4.

Are you familiar with Eclipse Bugzilla? It will have a link on how to
open a new enhancement request. You'll need to be registered with
Eclipse Bugzilla to open one.

Another option, if you don't have time to wait for an official
implementation, is you could replace the Eclipse print.css with your
own. I see the print.css is located in the following plug-in in the 3.4
GA package:
org.eclipse.help.webapp_3.3.100.v20080528.jar
and is in the advanced directory in that jar file.

You'd have to update that plug-in JAR file to put in your own
"print.css" to replace the one from Eclipse.

HTH,
Lee Anne

No it's intentional and working as designed. Under the old scheme it was
possible to have different css for navigation pages and non-navigation
pages and this preserves that option.

Yes, please do open this enhancement request. It looks like for Eclipse
3.5 I will be adding another option to be able to specify a CSS file for
right to left languages.

Hi,

Chris, thanks for the encouragement.

Just to close a loop on this: I've opened the enhancement request myself
for this in 3.5. I didn't see a new one from Mike, and as it's a nice
parallel use case to the existing ones, I thought time was of the essence.

The Bugzilla entry is https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=255732
