Using WebHelp macros in HTML fragments

Thu Jul 12, 2018 10:15 am


The ability to use WebHelp macros in HTML fragments is a welcome improvement! The instructions on using them, however, are a bit unclear: ... -html.html

The instructions do not reveal that you have to use the element <whc:macro value="${<macro>}"/> if you wish to append a text node to an element. Is the format ${<macro>} only applicable for adding attribute values?

Another question I have is that is it possible to use these macros within inline JavaScript in an HTML fragment? For instance, I'd like to use the WebHelp localization framework in initializing dataTables and using localized UI texts for dataTables based on the output language.

Best regards,
