Using local web content for Help System [message #1738663] Fri, 22 July 2016 00:23 Go to next message

We currently have extensive documentation and manuals that are currently authored and compiled using python's Sphinx Doc system which generates all our manuals, tutorials, and such as PDF's, HTML, etc.

I'm interesting in trying to figure out if there's a way to link all the (?) buttons within our RCP application to web URL's that can just open either in the embedded browser or external browser?

Effectively I'm just looking for a way to capture the HelpEvent that's generated for each of the buttons clicks. I've tried pouring through the Help documentation, and there isn't much help in trying to do what I'd like (it's all geared towards using the embedded help system).

I would hope I could just create some kind of Help Provider, but can seem to figure out how I might do this. Thoughts, pointers, example?

Thanks in advance.

The Eclipse Help system is in the bundle and is hooked up via the org.eclipse.ui.helpSupport extension point.
