Context help that automatically displays HTML topic [message #609354] Fri, 01 February 2008 19:59

I'm trying to setup context help so the HTML topic is automatically
displayed when you press F1 (instead of displaying related topics and
having to click a link to display the HTML topic).

According to the following bug (fixed in Eclipse 3.3 M4):

https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=88822

for each <context> entry, you omit the <description> tag and include only
one <topic> link. I'm doing this in Eclipse 3.3.1.1, but I still get the
old behaviour: pressing F1 displays related topics and you have to click a
link to display the HTML topic.

Can someone please verify this bug fix.

Also, I don't see mention of this feature in the 3.3 What's New or docs,
so if it is fixed, it'd be great to tell people about.

Like many other people, I've heard numerous complaints about having to go
through the extra step of clicking a related topic link to get to the
actual help. So if this fix actually works, it would be a major win.

Note: There was a previous post about this issue:

Thanks.
