Creating Keyword Links (KLinks)

In online Help targets, a keyword link displays a list of available topics that have been associated with an index keyword.

For example, if you were describing the FlexBag ActiveX Object and created the keyword link FlexBag in your document, a user would be able to click FlexBag in the Help file, and a dialog box would appear, allowing the user to choose any of the topics that have been associated with FlexBag, as shown below.

To create a keyword link, select the link text and apply the C1HKeywordLink character style. Use the Keyword Link D2HML dialog box to specify a topic to link to, or add a secondary part to the hot spot, setting its keyword property to the topic to which you want to link. See Creating a Hot Spot and Doc-To-Help Markup Language (D2HML) for more information on applying D2HML styles and using D2HML.

Note:  Keyword links have no effect in printed manual targets.
