Original date:2016-09-16 13:50:55 Edited by: K_D_R Subject: WEE online context sensitive help for GTK words

If you are always online it is much easier to use the online GTK documentation as opposed to downloading a bunch of GTK files into a directory and referencing that directory. This modified version of wee.exw context help procedure also includes my modification that automatically runs the view declaration routine if a html help article is not available for the current word - identifier.

global procedure context_help() 
      sequence text, decls, word, name_space, path 
      integer pos, junk 
      object help 
      text = get_edit_text() 
      pos = get_pos() 
      word = word_pos(text, pos) 
      if length(word) < 2 then 
            name_space = "" 
            word = "" 
            name_space = word[2] 
            word = word[1] 
      end if 
-- mods: load Gtk Widget help file. Must have Gtk html help files installed in ~/WEE/EuGTK/Docs    
      if match("Gtk",word) = 1 then  
-- offline:  ui_show_uri("FILE://"& canonical_path(sprintf("~/WEE/EuGTK/Docs/%s.html",{word}))) 
-- online: 
            ui_show_uri(""& sprintf("%s.html",{word})) 
      end if 
      -- load the search.dat file 
if length(search_dat) = 0 then 
            sequence paths = include_search_paths 
            for i = 1 to length(paths) do 
                  path = paths[i] 
                  if path[$] = SLASH then 
                        path = path[1..$-1] 
                  end if 
                  path &= join_path({"..","docs","html"}) & SLASH
