Displaying the Flare TOC as a menu

SmartMenus

I’ve produced a full example project of how to integrate a menu control into Flare, which uses the Flare TOC file.

An example project with documentation is here (topics in Introduction section):
http://ukauthor.esy.es/SmartMenusHTML5/Content/Main-Intro.htm

This might be of use to anyone that’s designing a skin-less HTML5 output, and needs a navigation system that can be integrated into topics.

The documentation shows how to:

  • Use XSLT to convert a Flare TOC file to a HTML menu.
  • Configure the project for the SmartMenus plugin.
  • Integrate the menu into topics, either by using a snippet or by dynamically loading the content.

All details are on the linked site above, it should answer most questions.
