Join David Rivers for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating and opening WebHelp projects, part of RoboHelp 9 HTML Essential Training.
In the last chapter, we covered many of the basic features of RoboHelp while…working with projects to be viewed in the Microsoft HTML help format.…And it's a great format that generates a single help file that can be viewed on…your computer using a built-in viewer.…But as we continue to explore more features in this chapter, let's shift our…focus to a layout that can be posted online and therefore viewed by virtually…everyone on virtually any computer using a web browser like Internet Explorer on…a Windows PC, or Safari on a Mac, for example.…
We will begin by creating a new project, so if you have any projects open,…you can close them.…That leaves you with the Starter.…And we are going to choose a project that's going to give us a nice head start…using the WebHelp layout.…So we will click More, because you don't see the option we are looking for here…on the Starter screen.…It's Web Application Help, and when you select that and click OK and then…choose a name for your project here in the New Project Wizard--let's do How to use LDC--…

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.
