I'd like to define a help call for all my commands to my online documentation.In other words, I don't use CHM files, and I'd like to know how use API function acedSetFunHelp with a link to a website and not a CHM?
I also raises the question whether one function will also define the behavior of F1 button in the ribbon?
Solved! Go to Solution.
If I remember correctly, calling a Webpage directly is something like this:
acedSetFunHelp(_T("MyCOMMAND"),_T(http://mywebsite.com/MyCommandHelp.htm),_T(""), 0) or
Calling a Webpage directly, with an HTML anchor
acedSetFunHelp(_T("MyCOMMAND"),_T(http://mywebsite.com/MyProductPage.htm),_T("#MyCommandTopic"), 0) or
Thank you for your interesting answer. I tested with a URL like this : http://www.mywebsite.com/mycommand/mysection and it didn't work. It seems that if the URL ends with .htm, it works. Do you have more details about that?
Another question: Do you know how to tell AutoCAD to use the default browser and not IE?
I believe that's a Windows registry entry, not an AutoCAD one...Basically setting the default browser... Google will help with this one for you.
