Qt Help - how to specify a topic Id for qcollectiongenerator?

  • The documentation page Using Qt Assistant as a Custom Help Viewer, section Using Qt Assistant Remotely, describes the remote command activateIdentifier <Id>. This command seems like the simplest way to position the help to a given topic.

    However, the documentation does not say how and where to specify this Id in the input files to qcollectiongenerator.

    Can somebody point me in the right direction?

  • No answer - should I take it that Qt Help is no longer supported? A pity, since it still has quite a few bugs.

    From my side, I have found an alternative way of positioning to the topic-file named "<ID>.html" via the Qt Help setSource command, so as to display the topic by using :

    setSource qthelp://<mydocname>/doc/<ID>.html

    No, it's more likely that you are using a module that isn't that much used by the members of the forum.

    You can also bring that question to the interest mailing list. You'll find there Qt's developers/maintainers. This forum is more user oriented.
