About scripts

Scripts are coded instructions that tell the HTML Help viewer or browser how to react to events. Scripts add power and more functionality to HTML Help systems, intranets, and websites.

Two common supported scripting languages are VBScript and JavaScript. The scripting used is the same kind used by web pages. Scripts are uncompiled. You can view them in the RoboHelp HTML Editor. Because they are uncompiled, they do not require a dynamic-link library (DLL).

Because HTML Help does not support macros, use scripts to provide the same functionality that macros provide for WinHelp systems. Application developers can provide scripts for you to plug right into the topics.

note:   Add support files used in scripts (such as image files) to the Baggage Files folder to include in the project.
