Join David Rivers for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding sound to a topic, part of RoboHelp 9 HTML Essential Training.
One thing you can do to add interest to your help system is to insert a sound…file, which could be an explanation, for example, of something that people are…reading in your help system. Or maybe it's just some soothing background music…to calm their nerves.…Either way, it's easily done, and that's exactly what we're going to do here in…our Using LDC project.…I'm actually going to go to the Welcome topic, and let's say we want people, when…they arrive at this Welcome topic, to hear some background music.…Well, all we have to do is see the topic here and, anywhere in the topic itself,…access the topic properties. The fastest way to do that is just to right-click and…select Topic Properties from the pop-up menu.…
Next, we'll choose the Appearance tab, which right below it shows us a field…for a background sound.…So if you have the sound, you just simply browse to it using the Browse button,…the little folder icon, and if you have the exercise files, you can browse with me…to those exercise files. In the Chapter 6 folder, 06_05, you'll see something…

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.
