MadCap's Dynamic Help Window

Post by jimgilliam »

Hi. I'd like to create something similar to the Dynamic Help window that opens when you click Help > Dynamic Help in Flare. See attached image.

Does anyone know how I could accomplish creating something like this? I'm wanting a panel (or custom sized window) to display my team's help content.

CSH calls with HTML5 just open a new browser window or tab, and I want a custom window that opens instead. Does MadCap use the deprecated WebHelp to accomplish this? Or is there another way or option?

I believe this would be a window built into the application by your devs. This help window would display a webviewer (kind of a cut down browser). They would also code the application so that the help calls open in that application window.

There's information about who does what for CSH in the help files. Plus this topic with very basic information about the dynamic help. ... c-Help.htm
