Hi all,
I have an RCP application. I want to create a menu item called as Help Content within the Help menu. However, instead of using the usual Eclipse help plugin, I want this menu item to open a pdf file that was created by me.. This pdf file has all the help contents...

How do we go about doing this? Tried searching in the net for this for 2 days continuously... all I came across was how to use Eclipse help plug ins in RCP (which I don't need!)

I hope I am clear enough.

Thx.

You can use the SWT Broswer object and give it the URL path.
