Main Window for HTML Slider

HTML SLider -- Tool for Web Pages

As you can see above, the user interface for HTML Slider is straight forward: there is a place to specify an input file, a place to specify an output folder, and a "Process" button which causes to program to build the HTML pages.

The input file, called the "definition file" is really a simple script that directs the activities of HTML Slider. The program remembers the definition that you used when it was run previously. You can open a different definition file by clicking on the top "Change" button. When the file is opened, HTML Slider parses the file, and informs you if finds any obvious errors. However, no output file is produced until you click on the "Process" button.

The main window shows the location of the output folder that will be used when you click on the "Process" button. The output folder can be specified in the definition file. If it is not specified in the definition file, then the output folder defaults to the location of the input file. After the input is parsed, you can override the output location by clicking on the bottom "change" button. Note that the output folder is relative; the program will create subfolders as necessary when the output files are written.

To effectively use HTML Slider, you will have to understand how to write a definition file. We suggest you go to the next page, here to read about definition files.
