Join David Rivers for an in-depth discussion in this video Inserting tables, columns, and rows, part of RoboHelp 9 HTML Essential Training.
If users of your help system are going to be viewing your content in a web…browser, one of the best and easiest ways to control how and where content…appears on the page is to use tables.…Tables have been used since the beginning of HTML coding, but it is a little…bit tricky, and if you don't know HTML coding, the good news is you can do it…all here in RoboHelp.…That's what we're going to talk about now using another version of our project…called using LDC tables.…You can see it's a very pared down version.…We have three topics and we're going to go to the Memberships topic.…
And as we scroll down to the bottom of the paragraph, before we get to that…graphic, maybe it would be nice to insert a table here that is going to allow us…to add the pricing, but we want the prices to line up nicely, so the best way to…do that is to use a table.…So we'll just hit Enter a couple of times to leave some empty space and insert our table.…Well, there are a couple different ways to do that.…We can go to the Table menu and right at the top you'll see Insert and then Table.…

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.
