HTML Help

HTML Help - Options

Use this sheet to specify options for the HTML Help file. This sheet is part of the source dialog and Project Wizard.

HTML Help Options

Specifies the HTML Help specific options. Possible values are:

Value Description
Do not compile localized CHM file but create only the source files

If checked, Soluling does not create localized CHM files but localized HTML Help source files (.hhp, .hhc, .html, etc). The user has to use HTML Help Compiler to compile localized HTML Help source files into a localized CHM file.
If unchecked, Soluling creates a localized CHM file.

Do not overwrite HTML Help project file If checked, Soluling does not overwrite the existing localized HTML Help project file (.hhp). Check this if you want to use your custom project file. You have to add the project file into a language-specific output directory of every language you have in the Soluling project.
Include images in the Files section If checked, Soluling adds image files in the Files section of the project file (.hhp) of the localized CHM file. Check this if the localized CHM files created by Soluling do not include all images files.
Use compatible language id whenever possible If checked, Soluling uses compatible language id when creating a localized CHM file. This means that if the target language is not English but uses Western code page 1252 such as German or French, Soluling sets the language id of the CHM to English (United States). This makes localized CHM files more compatible.
Scan script files If checked, Soluling scans script files (.e.g. JavaScript, .js) extracting possible hardcoded strings from the scripts.

Contents Sorting

Specifies if the localized table of contents (TOC) should be sorted. Possible sorting methods are:

Value Description
Do not sort
Table of contents is not sorted
Sort pages first, then subfolders Table of contents is sorted in such a way that it first contains pages and then subfolders.
Sort pages and subfolders together Table of contents is sorted in such a way that pages and subfolders are sorted together, and they may be pages between folders.

Top-level sorting specifies how top-level items in the contents are sorted. Sublevel sorting specifies how sub-level items are sorted.

The following image contains the original (not sorted) table of contents.

The following image contains a sorted table of contents where Sort pages first, then subfolders sorting is used.

The following image contains a sorted table of contents where Sort pages and subfolders together sorting is used.

Place pages into folders that match the first letter of the page

Check this if you have a table of contents where subpages are placed on letter-based folders. This means that all the pages that start with A are stored in A folder, all the pages starting with B on B folder, etc. If checked, Soluling will place the localized subpages on the corresponding folder.

The following image contains the original table of contents that contains alphabet based subfolders. The name of each subfolder is only one character. Each subfolder contains pages that start with the same name as the folder name.

d

The following image contains the Finnish version of the above table of contents.

You can see that there are now four subfolders instead of the original three. This is because, in Finnish, all four vehicles start with a different letter. In English, both Bike and Bicycle start with B.

Note! This option is used only with the language that uses alphabets (Latin, Cyrillic, or Greek alphabets).
