(This issue has been redirected from the SHFB forum)
I'm using the current SHFB 188.8.131.52 beta (we need the inheritdoc feature, the problem also occurs with 184.108.40.206, though) together with the current sandcastle CTP. Our presentation style is VS 2005. MsHelp2 documentation builds fine, however, I noticed that there
is a separate constructor entry in the index. It looks like that:
AbstractEdgeStyle (<- dysfunctional, i.e. no topic found)
constructor (<- dysfunctional, i.e. no topic found)
constructor (<- this is the constructor entry or the overloads page)
about AbstractEdgeStyle class
All entries below "AbstractEdgeStyle class" work fine, except that the constructors entry seems to be split off... The TOC entries on the content page are fine. Also, the problem occurs both in H2Viewer and in MS Document explorer, so I'm confident it's not
an issue with help2 registration.
The problem seems to be related to the VS 2005 presentation style (hana and prototype are fine, however, we don't like these styles...).
Does anyone know how to work around that problem?
The problem appears to be in the utilities_metadata.xsl file. If you search for
constructorIndexEntry you'll find where the K index item entry is added. A nested
<include> tag is duplicating the content item, so it should be removed.
This is what the XSL should look like after being fixed:
<includeAttribute name="Term" item="constructorIndexEntry">
<xsl:value-of select="." />
Note that I don't know if this fix will cause any negative side effects.
I'll file a bug report.
Invalid K Index entry for constructor APIs
