Page-Based Selection

Page-Based Selection Inspector

Purpose

Create a selection menu of project pages, also called a “jump” menu.

Description

A page-based selection creates a pop-up menu or single-select list of project pages. Selecting a page from the list navigates to that page. It is commonly used to present a set of links in a compact way.

Properties

Name Description
Attached Pages The page-based selection can select its starting pages automatically based on a “preset”. You can choose to display the direct children of the project home page (the “top-level” pages), the siblings of current page, or the children of the current page.

You can manually choose the starting pages by choosing “Custom…”  Several new settings appear below the Attached Pages setting for choosing custom pages.

Custom Level * Enter the level at which you would like the selection to start.

Each layer of pages in the page tree is referred to as a level, with the home page being level 1, its children being level 2, and so on.

In addition, you can specify pages above the current page using negative numbers, with its parent page being level -1, its parent’s parent page being level -2, and so on. This can be useful when adding navigation to a Master or Template.

Custom Pages * Choose a custom set of starting pages. This setting overrides any Custom Level setting.
Use Children * Whether to start with the children of the pages from the custom level/pages, rather than the pages themselves. This can be useful for showing the children of a specific page, without needing to select each child page by hand.
Maximum Levels The maximum number of levels of pages to show in the selection. Leave this field blank to show all levels.

Each layer of pages in the page tree is referred to as a level, so a value of 1 will show just the starting pages, 2 will show just the starting pages and their children, and so on.

Text The text to show in the pop-up menu. Leave this field blank to have the selection show the current page (if it is included in the list).
Show as List Whether to show the selection as a list box, rather than a pop-up menu.
Enabled Whether the selection is enabled. A disabled selection cannot be clicked.

* These settings are only available when Attached Pages is set to “Custom…
