I've been reading about the documentation API that Qt provides, but it seems that it does not meet my needs.
We have an existing external documentation in html that is written by a person who does not have access to the source code.
We have introduced a documentation system where the user can rightclick on any widget and jump to the corresponding html page in the documentation.
If I understand it correctly, this feature would be part of the Qt Documentation API if the documentation was in a qch format.
Extract from http://doc.qt.nokia.com/4.7-snapshot/qthelpproject.html:
"To enable the QHelpEngine to retrieve the proper documentation to a given link, every documentation set has to have a unique identifier."
It is not clear to me, why the target of these links can only be in qch files. Is there a possibility to use the QHelpEngine with normal html files?
Are compiled help files not quite an old concept and nowadays, most documentation is simply a normal html file/folder?
