Browse Sequence





If you're creating ebooks or presentations, you might want your readers to navigate pages in a specific order.


HTML Executable allows you to control the behavior of the Back and Forward buttons/menus using two modes: History and Browse Sequence.


History Mode is the standard mode where the Back and Forward buttons operate similarly to web browsers, enabling users to return to previously visited pages.

Browse Sequence Mode associates the Back and Forward buttons with a specific browsing sequence. HTML pages are displayed in a predetermined order, eliminating the need for users to click on hyperlinks for navigation.


To use Browse Sequence Mode, you must have created a Table of Contents. However, displaying the Table of Contents to the users is not mandatory. You can set its 'Visible' property to 'False', preventing it from being displayed to users.


The sequence of pages 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.




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

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

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