Thumbnail Images Using CHM

Postby hljanas on Wed Nov 09, 2016 6:49 am

Good morning Flare community!

I am creating a help file for a help system using the CHM output. My issue is with determining the thumbnail size. I need the images, once they expand to fit into the window. It appears as if they are setting to the actual image size. If found the code that determines that (see below), but I am not sure how to manipulate it to get it to do what I want. Do I need additional javascript, jquery (which I prefer not to use), or is it a stylesheet issue? I tried creating stylesheet items MadCap:popupWidth and MadCap:popupHeight, but they did not seem to work. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Code: Select all
<p><a href="javascript:void(0);" MadCap:popupSrc="SaMMDOnlineToolHomePage.png" MadCap:popupWidth="1699" MadCap:popupHeight="936" MadCap:popupAlt="" onclick="FMCPopupThumbnail_Onclick( event, this ); return false;"><img class="MCPopupThumbnail_ThumbnailEndUser_0" src="SaMMDOnlineToolHomePage_thumb_0_60.png" style="width: 109px;height: 60px;" alt="" title="" tabindex="" /></a>

I realize this post was a couple of years ago, but I have struggled with this as well. MadCap Flare's tech support team has told me that the best way to deal with this was to resize the full-size images to be the expanded size I wanted, but this is a lot of manual work. Has anybody found a workaround?
