Join David Rivers for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a trigger, part of RoboHelp 9 HTML Essential Training.
Very similar to using hyperlinks in a project is something called a Trigger.…With triggers, you can also make use of DHTML special effectS.…So you can use an object or text that will act as a trigger, when clicked, it…will do something else.…For example, maybe here in our How to Use the Exercise Files topic, we want to…add some text that says click here to see what a zipped folder looks like, so…people understand zip compression.…Well, that's what we're going to do.…So let's just click here at the end of the first paragraph in front of the T in…"To download the files..." and hit Enter a couple of times.…
Now, the last sentence in the first paragraph reads, "The files are provided in…the zip compression format."…Let's add some text that will be our trigger.…We'll put it in brackets, and say, "Click here to see what a zipped folder looks like."…Now, people who already know this don't have to click here.…But if they're not sure what a zipped folder looks like, we're creating some…text that they can click that will display a zipped folder.…

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.
