Not sure if this is the right forum for this. Been searching all over Google... zip. Hoping someone here can provide a clue.

My client has a web app built with Eclipse technology, and the Help system is in the Eclipse Help format. Everything works fine, except that the top node of the Table of Contents is always collapsed when Help is invoked. It really needs to be expanded to show all the nodes in the first level down, like so:

Welcome to ZuperApp Help
|---Overview
|---User Guide
|---Administration
|---Reference

I've found sources that tell how to solve this for JavaHelp... you edit toc.xml and putting an expand="true" attribute in nodes that must expand. Doesn't work for Eclipse Help.

But there must be a way, either in the API or the plugin meta files or the toc.xml. It seems minor but it's a pain to have to expand that first level TOC every time. If I think so, I can imagine how users feel... Mad

Any clues would be much appreciated!
