F1 language help not working
« on: April 07, 2021, 08:20:44 pm »
In 25.0.1 with hotfix 2, pressing F1 on a printf (for example) in an ANSI-C or C/C++ file doesn't open help in my browser like it used to.  It used to take me to (for example http://www.cplusplus.com/reference/cstdio/printf/)

I'm thinking this may be an issue with Chrome rather than SE.

The url from an C/C++ file is https://www.google.com/webhp?ie=UTF-8#q=C%2FC%2B%2B%20printf.

For ANSI-C it is https://www.google.com/webhp?ie=UTF-8#q=ANSI-C%20printf

I also tried it in 25.0.0.9 with hotfix 5.  Same result.

There's an error in def_word_help_url.

Change the # to an &

Thanks.

That seems to do the trick.

Can I assume that an official fix will be forthcoming?

Yes. I’ll add a hot fix for this.
