MadCap Flare Webhelp not working properly.

Postby mgzparanoid on Thu Jul 15, 2021 11:05 pm


I was given a bunch of files that I should attach to a webpage to get the context-help menu working. For some reason I can't get the CHM to work, whenever the ID is correct, the generated link consists of characters that I can cut manually and the right help window appears. If I choose a higher number from the list the CSH menu appears, but it's not pointed at the correct subpage.

The script is attached in the right place(<script src="./default.js"></script>), and the link buttons are as follows:
<input type="button" value="?" onclick="FMCOpenHelp('SrchParams_Contract' ,null, null, null );" />
<input type="button" value="?" onclick="FMCOpenHelp('35',null, null, null );">
<input type="button" value="?" onclick="FMCOpenHelp('50',null, null, null );">

If I change the ID as a number(first instance of button), nothing changes.

Can you tell me what should I do to fix this? Was I not given the right amount of files(or correct files) in the first place?

Kind regards.
