  • Some items missing in help for pbwin 9

    I miss some words in the helpfile for PBWin.
    They have been replaced by a square with a point in there.
    When I compare my local help with the help of the PowerBASIC site
    these are the differences.

    Code:
    A complete set of advanced string manipulation functions: VERIFY, REMOVE, REPLACE, EXTRACT, TALLY, REPEAT, [.] , and many more
    
    REGEXPR and REGREPL functions for regular expression search and replace
    
    Array Sort and Scan, element Insert and Delete
    
    MIN and MAX value Functions that work with both [.] and [.] data types
    
    PEEK, POKE, PEEK$, POKE$ for direct memory access.
    This what it should read:

    Code:
    A complete set of advanced string manipulation functions: VERIFY, REMOVE, REPLACE, EXTRACT, TALLY, REPEAT, PARSE, and many more
    
    REGEXPR and REGREPL functions for regular expression search and replace
    
    Array Sort and Scan, element Insert and Delete
    
    MIN and MAX value Functions that work with both numeric and string data types
    
    PEEK, POKE, PEEK$, POKE$ for direct memory access
    Reading the source of this part of the helpfile I found a wrong redirection.

    Code:
     
    <a HREF="REPEAT_function.htm">REPEAT</a>, 
    	<!--Metadata type="DesignerControl" startspan
    	<object CLASSID="clsid:FA08DD73-92D8-11d1-BD65-00DC92907E89"

    					margin-bottom: 0px;
    					margin-left: 0px;

    					vertical-align: baseline;"
    			align=bottom>

      Hi Hans,

      What is supposed to be at these locations is a HtmlHelp See Also AKLink, which is an ActiveX Control. You need to change your IE security settings to allow signed ActiveX controls.

      If changing your IE security settings has not fixed this problem, then can you tell me if the help file is installed on a network drive? If so, can you tell me if the control then displays correctly if you copy and run the CHM file locally?

      If you have installed to a local drive, install the latest HTML Help security patch (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/896358), if you haven't already done so. This is typically delivered via Windows Update and, on XP, it upgrades the version of hhctrl.ocx to 5.2.3790.2453.

      If this does not help, try the steps at http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/?kbid=822989, where one of the problems listed
      on this page talks about the problem of "Some links appear as a small box with a dot in the center.".

      If these do not resolve the problem, try re-registering the HTML Help ActiveX control from the command line. To do this, open a Command Prompt window and type these two commands:

      regsvr32 /u %windir%\system32\hhctrl.ocx
      regsvr32 %windir%\system32\hhctrl.ocx

      The first command unregisters the control; the second registers it again.

      Also, make sure that you do have all the Windows XP updates installed and you may consider upgrading to IE7, as IE installs the core HtmlHelp components. I really hate to say this, I know how Windows updates can be, but if the above steps to not resolve this, it maybe your only choice?

      And lastly I can suggest that you run MJ's Help Diagnostics from http://www.helpware.net/downloads/, which will check the status of all the HTML Help viewer components on your system. The only section of the MJ's Help Report that is relevant to your problem is the one headed "HTML Help Run-time Components". If need help you can send me this report and I will review it.

      If none of these resolve this, please let me know and we will keep working at this until we do.
      Sincerely,

        Hello Steve.
        install the latest HTML Help security patch (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/896358)
        This solves the problem.
        Thank you for your help.
