This is great news.  I've been working to implement EA HTML reports as Web-Based Help on my project here for some time.  I look forward to seeing you approach.

Just now I updated the tool.
Now this tool can generate .chm file directly.

And I also uploaded sample .chm file of EAExample.eap.

Please try it!

Thanks for providing this tool!

My feedback would be:

1) Don't automatically close the dialog after generating the help file (pressing the Generate button).

2) When automatcally generating the .chm, put a pause on the cmd window that comes up so any errors can be read (perhaps make it optional).

3) Make a command line version.  Having this as part of an automated build would be awesome.

Again - thanks!

Thank you for your use and feedback.

About Jeff's post:

1. It's easy to change.
2. It's difficult because I just call HTMLHelp exe file.
   I can do like it to change calling batch file (contains 'pause')
   instead of exe file.
3. It's also easy. If user specify parameters, I don't
   show dialog and just making HTML help.

I'll update it until end of this week.

Sounds great!

Do you know a way to get EA to generate the HTML for a particular package via the automation interface?  I was looking for that functionality but could not find it, at least using the C# assembly Interop.EA from C#.

With that, regenerating the design documentation to a web site could be automated,

Hello,

To get HTML report by Automation Interface, Project.RunHTMLReport
method is the answer.

With this method, generating .CHM from EA (maybe it's Add-in) but now I don't think
it's important because we don't generate HTML report
so often.

I already changed the tool to be able to run with
command line, so you can do by registering it
to EA Tool menu.
(I'll update the website soon).
