ComponentOne Doc-To-Help 2009 Introduces XML-based Authoring, Embedded Help, and More
With the release of Doc-To-Help 2009, ComponentOne introduces a built-in XML-based editor, a tool for embedding dynamic Help in applications, and many new authoring features.
Authors today recognize the benefits of XML-based authoring when creating re-usable, portable, and formatted content. XML-based authoring has traditionally come with setbacks, as it requires specialized knowledge. Doc-To-Help 2009 lifts this constraint by providing a built-in editor for XML-based authoring. With this new editor, you can work in an easy-to-use authoring interface while enjoying Microsoft Word-like style formatting. Doc-To-Help automatically creates standards-compliant XML and CSS files as you write.
Doc-To-Help s advanced technology also allows you to convert existing Word documents to XHTML in just one click. You can even map Word styles to CSS styles associated with the new XML file. Doc-To-Help is flexible in the fact that it still allows Word users to work in Word if they wish, rather than converting to XML.
Now authors and developers can work together with the new ComponentOne DynamicHelp tool included with Doc-To-Help 2009. This tool provides a way to embed dynamically updating Help into your applications. To do this, the .NET developer embeds the DynamicHelp control in the application and passes it off to the Help author. The Help author takes the application and uses a visual mapping interface to connect Help topics to interface elements (buttons, text boxes, menu items, and more).
