Replacing the Toolbar Buttons in WebWorks Help

WebWorks Help provides several default buttons. These buttons allow the user to navigate through the help, and they provide additional features, such as printing a page from the help or emailing a link to a topic page. The toolbar buttons are .gif images for which you can provide override files. You can replace these standard buttons with other .gif images.

To replace one or more toolbar buttons in WebWorks Help

  1. Identify the theme in use for your WebWorks Help target that you want to modify. For more information, see “Selecting a Theme” on page 206.

  2. In your Stationery design project, on the View menu, click Project Directory. For more information about override files and locations, see “Understanding Stationery, Projects, and Overrides” on page 371.

  3. If you want to override the images for 'all WebWorks Help targets, create the WebWorks Help 5.0\Skins\theme\Files\wwhelp\wwhimpl\common\images folder in your projectname\Formats folder, where theme is the name of the WebWorks Help theme you want to override, such as Lobby_Blue, and projectname is the name of your ePublisher project. If the theme name is two words, include an underscore instead of a space between the words.

  4. If you want to override the images for one WebWorks Help 'target, create the WebWorks Help 5.0\Skins\theme\Files\wwhelp\wwhimpl\common\images folder in your projectname\Targets folder, where theme is the name of the WebWorks Help theme you want to override, such as Lobby_Blue, and projectname is the name of your ePublisher project. If the theme name is two words, include an underscore instead of a space between the words.

  5. Paste the .gif files you want to use with names identical to those you want to replace in the images folder you created. The following table lists several default button images and their file names. For a complete list of image file names, see the appropriate folder in the ePublisher installation folder within Program Files. You can copy the files from the installation folder and then modify them in your project.
