Join David Rivers for an in-depth discussion in this video Splitting your help screen using frames, part of RoboHelp 9 HTML Essential Training.
With RoboHelp 9 it's possible to split your Help screen into regions called…Frames and whether you know it or not we've been doing this by default.…Here's an example of a generated preview of our project where we have our Table…of Contents over in the left-hand side in its own frame. It's adjustable;…we can move the border around.…The topic that's selected is displayed over here on the right-hand side.…But we have even more control over frames and that's what we are going to focus…our attention on now.…Frames are made up of a couple of elements;…a frame set and the frames themselves.…
And just so you know the frame set is what controls how the frames look and…which frames contain which topics.…So that when you're linking topics to frames you just have to keep in mind that…you're going to need to link the topic to a frame set and to the frame and…that's what we're going to.…So we're going to close up this and continue working on our project here called…How to Use LDC Forms.…Let's say we want to set up a little test where we can see questions on one side…

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.
