Browse Sequence

Applies to HTML Viewer, IE Browser publications.

If you create ebooks or presentations, you may want your readers to browse pages in a specific order.

HTML Executable lets you configure the behavior of the Back and Forward buttons / menus thanks to two modes: History and Browse Sequence.

  • The History mode is the standard one: the Back and Forward buttons work as in web browsers allowing users to come back to pages they have visited.

  • The Browse Sequence mode associates the Back and Forward buttons to a browse sequence: HTML pages are displayed in a specific order (there is no need to click on hyperlinks to navigate through pages) of your choice.

To use this mode, you must have created a Table of Contents. However, it is not mandatory to show the latter: you can keep its Visible property to False, thus the TOC will actually never appear to users.

The page sequence is automatically defined by their order of appearance in the Table of Contents:

On this screenshot, the “Contents” HTML page will be displayed first. If the user clicks Next, the publication will show “Chapter 1” then “Chapter 2”, etc.

Notes

  • You can of course have a visible Table of Contents and a Browse Sequence together.

  • It is highly recommended that the index page of your publication belongs to the sequence (not necessarily in the first position).

  • The Back & Forward buttons (and menus) are automatically disabled when the first and last pages in the sequence are displayed.
