    Default Qt 5: handling of CSS imports in QtHelp

    Note: this is a reposting of my original post in the Qt Programming sub-forum. I wasn't aware of this WebKit sub-forum...

    ---------------------------------------

    Hi,

    I use QtHelp for my application’s help. It’s all very simple HTML and CSS code. In my help’s home page, I link a CSS file as follows:

    Qt Code: Switch view

    Qt Code:
    1. <link href="res/stylesheet.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"/>
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode

    Then, in my res/stylesheet.css file, I import another CSS file as follows:

    Qt Code: Switch view

    Qt Code:
    1. @import "/doc/res/common.css";
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode

    /doc is the root folder for my application’s help and it’s how QtHelp (in Qt 4.8) used to require the import to be done (see this previous thread of mine).

    However, now, the above @import statement just doesn’t work, meaning that my application’s help doesn’t get styled anymore.

    So, was I doing the right thing before and/or have things changed in Qt 5? What is certain is that if I include my CSS code directly in res/stylesheet.css, then everything is fine, telling me that the issue is with @import…

    Anyway, any help would be much appreciated…

    Cheers, Alan.

    I was rather thinking about a forum at webkit.org when I suggested posting at a webkit forum
    Your biological and technological distinctiveness will be added to our own. Resistance is futile.

    Please ask Qt related questions on the forum and not using private messages or visitor messages.

    I must confess that it did cross my mind... This being said, I was wondering whether the problem wasn't, somehow, related to Qt 5 rather than WebKit itself. Still, I am also going to check on the WebKit forum...

    FWIW, I just came back to the above issue and found out what happened. Basically, the syntax changed (?) between Qt 4 and Qt 5. So, rather than having something like:

    Qt Code:
    1. @import "/doc/res/common.css";
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 
    We should now have:

    Qt Code:
    1. @import "qthelp://namespace/virtualFolder/doc/res/common.css";
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 
    Now, I wish it had been documented somewhere...
