Grasshopper

algorithmic modeling for Rhino

Hello to all,

from a node developed in Visual Studio, I need to add a button or a link text in the Grasshopper Help pop-up  to open the web browser and point specific address.

for the moment I just tried overridingthis two guys:

protected override string HtmlHelp_Source()
{
  return "GOTO:http://www.YourWebAddressHere.com";
}

protected override string HelpDescription
{
 get
 {
  return "hi";
 }
}

where I could find more references or examples?

kind regards

thanks in advance

Carlos

Nowhere I'm afraid. The help documentation SDK is terrible and there is no explanation for it. Are you saying overriding the Html_Source override doesn't work?

Hi David, thanks.

I haven't went too far overriding the Html_Source method. (apart from the GOTO).

Can I insert html code in that method in order to display the information in a different way? could you point me some snippet, to have an idea how to start?

for the the HelpDescription Method I trigger the browser via system.diagnostic, but is not what I really need.

what I need is quite similar you have done for the native nodes. instead of point to the contactdeveloper (link) something to point to a web page.

kind regards

thanks in advance

Carlos
