Hi Dennis,

i tried a bit with the help and i found out that with the Chrome browser you can get it work.

for Example: If you want to load the italian help, you can start the Chrome browser like this with a script

Start chrome -lang=IT --new-window http://localhost:8181/tdoc/nx/10/nx_help/#goto:exnx:exnx_ovr

I made me some Buttons in nx and get it to work

Hello @Cableguy,

 

That is good to hear. What you are in fact doing is change the prefered language for your Browser. Did not know this could be done with a command. Thanks for that.

You can also manually change the language when started. I think the only downside is, although you can start the browser this way and get the correct language. But F1 (Help on context) will probably not work this way, (or does it?). For this we will have to wait a bit longer.

 

Kind regards,

 

Dennis

Hi @suso,

 

As explained above here, we are working on a way to set the language in the URL. For now this is unfortunately not yet possible. You can change the default language in your browser... set the preferred language (English) at the top. This does mean also other websites will be loaded in English as preferred language as well, which can be unwanted.

 

As you can read in the post of @Cableguy, he has created a workaround which might help you.

 

Kind regards,

 

Dennis

Is there a way to point NX to the online help rather than the local help?  Our internal network prevents local help from working.

 

I can visit the links directly, but if I click Menu/Help/NX Help... I go to a dead local host URL.

Hello @MarkBurhop,

 

A bit depending on what version of NX (documentation) you are using.

 

If I'm correct, the variable where @Cableguy is refering to, is uses up till NX 9.0.

 

For NX 10.0 and later it's UGII_UGDOC_BASE.

 

But since NX 10.0.3 and NX 11.0, if remove this variable, NX will automatically point to our online doc server.

 

I hope this answers your question?

 

Kind regards,

Hi Everyone interested in this thread.

 

There is currently a new update out on the SPLM doc server. Version 2.1.

 

And the feature discussed here before, is now working. You can change the language by adding the Local in the URL.

Default examples:
It used to be:
http://localhost:8282/tdoc/nx/10/nx_help#uid:index

 

Now you can use:
http://localhost:8282/tdoc/en_US/nx/10/nx_help#uid:index and it will show up in English
Or
http://localhost:8282/tdoc/de_DE/nx/10/nx_help#uid:index and it will show up in German,

 

No matter what language setting you have in your browser.

 

Do note, that the URL and port number to your local or online doc server may vary.

 

Hope this helps some of you.

 

Kind regards,

 

Dennis
