Problems getting HELP_HOME to function in RCP [message #622797] Thu, 15 January 2009 09:03

I am having problems getting my RCP to display a customized page in the
Help > Help Contents window (right hand pane).

I have followed the tutorial here
( http://www.eclipse.org/articles/article.php?file=Article-Add ingHelpToRCP/index.html)
to create a test RCP and basic Help plugin. This works fine.

I have added the plugin_customization.ini file and accompanying property
in the plugin.xml Extensions:

<property
name="preferenceCustomization"
value="plugin_customization.ini">
</property>

I have added the following line to the plugin_customization.ini file:

org.eclipse.help.base/HELP_HOME=/com.myplugin.help/html.inde x.html

However, it still displays the default Eclipse page located in:

org.eclipse.help.base

No matter what I do, I can't get it to override the Eclipse page.

When I export the RCP and then open the org.eclipse.help.base JAR and
modify the preferences.ini file directly to point HELP_HOME to where I
want, it DOES work...

Any ideas why I cannot get it to override the default page unless I
modify the preferences.ini?
