Subject: RE: CHM TOC Icons

There are options but they are limited.
(1) There is a TOC option to use either a book icon (default) or a folder icon for container levels. The following HHC markup just inside the opening <body> tag changes them to folder icons:
    <object type="text/site properties">
        <param name="ImageType" value="Folder">
(2) There are 42 built-in icons that you can reference by number to change the icon on a particular entry. Icon #13 is popular; it uses a globe to indicate that the link goes to the Web:
    <li> <object type="text/sitemap">
         <param name="Name" value="My Web Site">
         <param name="Local" value=www.mywebsite.com>
         <param name="ImageNumber" value="13">
If you edit a TOC using Microsoft HTML Help Workshop then you can see what all the built-in icons look like.
(3) It is technically possible to create your own icons, but unfortunately this option is completely impractical since your custom icons must (a) exist outside the CHM, and (b) be referenced using an absolute file path.

Subject: CHM TOC Icons

Has anyone figured out a way to change the book icons in CHM output? I’d like to change the colour of the icons to match our webhelp output.


Any suggestions/ideas?


Kind Regards,
