Join David Rivers for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding hotspots to an image, part of RoboHelp 9 HTML Essential Training.
One interesting thing you can do with images you insert into a topic here in…RoboHelp is create an image map on them,…that is, to create hotspots so that users of your Help system can click areas of…the graphic itself, which will link them to other locations.…It could be within the project.…It could be outside of the project, like a web site, for example.…We're going to do that using our Using LDC project here, and we're going to go to…the Membership topic and scroll down to the bottom.…Just click after Cancellation Policy.…There's already a number of links here.…
We're going to hit Enter a couple of times just to leave some space, and we'll…insert a graphic that we'll use to create an image map.…So let's go up to Insert.…You could go down to Image,…use Ctrl+G. You'll also notice that there is a button on the Linking toolbar…for inserting images.…When you do that, you'll see the image window we've seen if you've been…following along when inserting different types of graphics into our project.…

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.
