wxWidget help files with context
« on: July 30, 2010, 10:18:59 pm »
Hi everyone,

I've been using C::B (svn 6354 on Ubuntu Lucid Lynx) for a short while now and have recently managed to install/build wxWidgets 2.9.1. My question is now related to the Help Plugin: how do I get a help doc for wxWidgets 2.9.1 to act contextually (e.g. caret in wxPanel, press F1 and get help for wxPanel)?

Any help much appreciated,

Cheers,
Richard ~

Here is some kind of documentation: http://wiki.codeblocks.org/index.php?title=Help_plugin
(most of the time I ignore long posts)

Hi oBFusCATed, thanks for your help the other day on getting me going with wx2.9.1 working.

I've actually just found this site myself, but I still don't know how to use the $(keyword) bit to redirect to the right context. Any help on this anyone?

Thanks in advance

This link "http://docs.wxwidgets.org/stable/wx_$(keyword).html" works for me (you'll have to replace stable with your versions).
Also you should change "Preserve keywords case" to "Convert keyword to lowercase"
