Add index controls

note:   Applies to Microsoft HTML Help projects only.

The tri-pane design includes an Index tab, where users can access keywords.

If the project does not support a tri-pane design, you can add an index control to a topic to make the index file available. The index appears when users open the topic with the index control.

If the topic is in a subfolder, copy the index file (.HHK) to the subfolder before you add the control.

1)In the Design Editor, click the place in the topic to add the index.

2)Select Insert > HTML > Javascript > Index.

3)To test the index control, compile the project. The index control displays the same index as in the final output.

tip:   You can use other index files (HHK) in the project. Copy the HHK file and associated files (topics, images, multimedia) to select the HHK file with the index control.
