Description Patrick Keegan 2006-09-20 13:27:21 UTC
JavaHelp 2.0 contains a <presentation> tag in the main help set, which enables
you to programatically set the size and position of the Help viewer when it is
opened. However, adding the presentation tag along with size attribute does not
affect the IDE's JavaHelp, which the tag is added to the MasterHelpSet.xml file.
It would be nice to have this implemented

Reassigning to the new "core/help system" owner obarbashov.

Moving JH issues to Victor.
Comment 3 Victor Vasilyev 2009-05-20 17:17:13 UTC
Current implementation of the JavaHelp Integration module (i.e. NB6.7) chooses the size and position of the Help dialog
according to some own conception that takes into account all visible windows of the IDE.
Ability to change behavior of the Help dialog from inside a help set may destroy the conception.

We need discuss this enhancement to understand all pro and con.
