Visual Studio help file integration

Post by upCASE » Wed Oct 19, 2005 10:22 am

Hi!
For those of you who are working with VS 7, I just updated the helpfiles from the documentation and created an installer that will allow you to integrate the wxWidgets 2.6.2 help file into VS. It will add a new "wxWidgets" filter and should support searching for specific classes like the "standard" VS docs do.
However this will not install dynamic help.

To install it simply download the installer and run it. By default it will try to install into $(WXDIR)\docs\h2help if the variable WXDIR is set. But you're free to install it anywhere you like.

OS: OpenSuSE, Ubuntu, Win XP Pro
wx: svn
Compiler: gcc 4.5.1, VC 2008, eVC 4

That's cool. The new document for wxWidgets 2.7.1 is available. How can I integrate it to Visual studio ? What kind of tools I should use?

Visual Studio help file integration

Thanks very much. I have installed wxWidgets_doc_262.exe and it seems to work fine with my Visual Studio 8 Professional. Are you planning to update the docs to version 2.8.0? It would be nice if these help files were up on the main page with the other help file formats. :D

Great!
Currently I have no plan to update the docs and the installer. It's not a straight forward process to convert the docs for this installer.

It would be nice to have this on the main page, but I doubt that many of the devs even know that this exists. It would really be helpful if the could build and include this for each new release.
