Creating an Additional HTML Help Window Definition

To create an additional window definition, such as a window without the navigation pane, you need to override the default template.hhp file. This file provides the default HTML Help project options. You can add a window definition through HTML Help Workshop, and then use WindowType markers in your source documents to use that window for specific topics in your HTML Help.

Note: This template file is used to create the .chm file for each top-level group in your project. If you have multiple top-level groups, ePublisher applies these settings to the .chm file for each top-level group.

To create an additional window definition

  1. In Windows Explorer, open your project folder. For more information about override files and locations, see “Understanding Stationery, Projects, and Overrides” on page 327.

  2. If you want to override the default HHP settings for 'all HTML Help targets' in the 'project, create the Formats\Microsoft HTML Help 1.x\Pages folder in your project folder.

  3. If you want to override the default HHP settings for a specific 'target, create the Targets\targetname\Pages folder in your project folder, where targetname is the name of the target you want to override.

  4. Copy the template.hhp file from the following folder to the override folder you created within your project folder:

Program Files\WebWorks\ePublisher Pro\Formats\Microsoft HTML Help 1.x\Pages

  1. In HTML Help Workshop, open the template.hhp file you copied to your project override folder.

  2. On the Project tab, double-click on Tripane=”” under [Windows]. HTML Help Workshop displays the Window Types window.

  3. Click Add.

  4. Type the name of the new window, and then click OK.

  5. Specify all the appropriate values for the window on all the tabs, and then click OK. For more information about an option, see the HTML Help Workshop help.

  6. On the File menu, click Save Project.

  7. On the File menu, click Exit.

  8. Regenerate your project to review the changes.
