I am using Robohelp 10 and currently working on Context Sensitive Help in which there is a need to create certain links for the topics that are present in Webhelp. My area of concern is that we can't use map id's since CS Help and Webhelp had already been created and it will be a mess for developers too since they had to relook their code. While generating output we don't give js files to our developers, we just give them folders and css file. Considering all these points,  is there any way to provide a link for a topic of Help in Context Sensitive Help? Anyone, Please Help !

I'm not clear on what the question is. You seem to want CSH and to not use Map IDs. That leaves other methods to which Willam has already pointed you. Essentially it's Map IDs or URLs. So are you asking if there is a method that does not involve the developers? No as it is they who must create a link of some sort from a screen to a topic.

You also say you don't give JS files, just folders and CSS. The Rh WebHelp output contains many files and folders and you have to give the whole output or the help will not work properly. Exactly what are you giving them?
