Unsolved Documentation in CHM
Qt documentation in CHM format for anyone that still likes documentation in CHM.
- Recent Qt Assistant (for Windows at least) was built with the rich text renderer (not the webkit renderer) so the styling was a bit lacking
- Portable, just a single file
- I use PyQt so I doesn't need the whole Qt installation
Hi , and thank you
If I expand and click stuff nothing is shown to the right
Is it just my viewer that is borked?
( pic shows window after i clicked Signals a few times)

@mrjj Your Windows might be too new, this is what I get on XP:
Edit: come to think about it, I think you can download the old .chm viewer (from XP) to Windows 7 and 10...
Well its just windows 7 ;)
Other *.chm does show so for some reason it dont like this one.
Lets say its just my system and chm viewer.
Thx for testing !
ps. WinXP on SSD disk is so fast :)
@mrjj The CHM is blocked. To unblock it, (1) don't run it from a network drive (2) click properties and click the unblock button (if exists) (3) Use powershell to unblock it or (4) disable chm security policy.
Alternatively you can use kchmviewer. It is actively developed and looks good.
Edit: OK, two issues with kchmviewer (1) it expands the whole contents tree which does not work well with an API reference documentation like Qt (2) in the index tab it shows the target name instead of the keywords - so still the orignal CHM viewer is better.
Updated with the rest of the Qt modules (Qt Chart, Data Visualization, etc.)
New one works flawless for me on win 7 and 10 :)
Good work. :)
Moved to announcement, more suited :)
Thanks for that nice idea.
