Join David Rivers for an in-depth discussion in this video Applying DHTML effects, part of RoboHelp 9 HTML Essential Training.
When generating projects in RoboHelp that will use either the Webhelp or…FlashHelp layouts, typically your users who are going to be viewing your help…system will be doing so in a browser, and because of that you have access to a…number of HTML effects, in fact, dynamic HTML effects at your disposal. It's called DHTML.…We're going to explore this now as we continue with our Using LDC Tables project.…And you can see I'm looking at the Welcome topic.…Let's say we want the title here, Welcome, to have a special effect every time…somebody opens up this page, and maybe the graphic down below, when people move…their mouse over it something should happen, to draw attention to it.…
In those cases we would access those DHTML Effects.…Let's start with our title.…We'll double-click Welcome to select it first, and you'll notice on the menu bar…there is a DHTML option.…We'll give it a click, and three down is where we see the Insert Edit Dynamic…HTML Effects option.…So we click that, and you will see down the left-hand side we have…

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.
