Welcome

Hi and welcome to RoboHelp 9 HTML Essential Training. I'm David Rivers. Adobe RoboHelp truly is the industry standard for authoring help systems. It is the preferred software program for help authors, technical writers, and programmers who are tasked with authoring help systems, whether they are desktop or web-based applications. Now, this course is targeted to users who are new to RoboHelp in general, as well as those who may be new to Adobe's latest rendition of RoboHelp HTML version 9.

We will begin with the basics, like touring the user interface and learning about workspaces, pods, and environments, before we get into creating and exploring the various types of projects one can create with RoboHelp. Then it's on to more advanced topics that will familiarize you with the various components, content, and formatting of your projects. So with so many topics to cover, let's get started.

Q: When I insert the ActiveX Calendar control and try to hide the title by setting the ShowTitle property to false, the title is not removed and remains visible. Why is this happening?
A: There are many ActiveX controls available and many versions of a control may exist. Different versions of a control can behave differently. Certain properties may work in one version of a control and not in another. ActiveX controls can be installed on your computer by different programs other than RoboHelp, such as Microsoft Excel and Access. In this title, version 11.0 of the Calendar control is used. If you are using a different version of the Calendar control, the ShowTitle property may not work properly. Go to www.microsoft.com to learn more about ActiveX controls and their properties.
