Join David Rivers for an in-depth discussion in this video Using auto-sizing pop-ups, part of RoboHelp 9 HTML Essential Training.
When creating hyperlinks here in a RoboHelp project, you are often taking your…users to another location, whether it be somewhere else in the project, in the…existing topic, or outside of the help system.…But on occasion you might want to just simply provide additional information…without having to navigate away from the existing topic.…Maybe it's relevant information that can be turned on and off.…In most cases you want to use something called Popup Help, and that's we're…going to do right now.…We'll continue working with our How to Use LDC Flash project here looking at…the Memberships topic, and as we scroll down towards the bottom, we already…have a number of hyperlinks here, including how to Get more information on…Managing your Account.…
That will take us to a different section, but we're going to click at the very…end here and just hit Enter a couple of times to add some more text that we're…going to create the hyperlink from.…Let's type in the following, View Cancellation Policy.…Now in this case we don't want to actually take people away from this topic.…

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.
