IHelpContentProvider is never called [message #623449] Wed, 05 August 2009 08:58

Hi

I'm trying to add some context sensitive help to my RCP application. My
editor adapts to IContextProvider to provide the correct IContext, which
is generated on the fly.

When I open the dynamic help (F1), the "Related Topics" view is shown
correctly, but when I click one of the links, I get a HTTP error 404 from
the ProxyServlet. What I would like to see is a HTML file from another
plugin, so the URL looks like /my.plugin.id/myfile.html.

As this did not work, I wrote my own IHelpContentProducer which should
open the file and return an InputStream. I registered my class in the
plugin.xml as a contentProducer in the extension point
org.eclipse.help.contentProducer. But this does not work neither. The
method getInputStream() of my IHelpContentProducer is never called.

What am I missing here? How can I get the IHelpContentProducer working? My
target platform is Eclipse 3.5.

Thanks for any help

Roland
