Collapsible elements in Tree layout

Post by syed » Wed Jun 03, 2020 5:56 am


If there are two levels of topicrefs in a ditamap, i think the Tree layout adds a collapsible symbol before the first level. This is good.

If there is a collapsible symbol against a text, the expectation is that when i click the text (not the symbol), it expands and not behave like a link. It is acting like a link because there could be an href defined in the topicref. Fair enough.

But, if there is no href in the topicref, currently, clicking on the text does nothing.

I think clicking the text should expand it if there is no href defined. Is there a way i can get that?

Hi Syed,

Thank you for your feedback.
You can try to achieve this by implementing a JavaScript customization for the WebHelp Responsive output:

I have also added an improvement request with your feedback to be further analyzed by our development team.
