Accordeon menu + Indesign DPS

Nov 13, 2012 5:16 AM

Hey everyone,

 

I have a question concerning the following item:

I'm currently working on a file and there's need for an accordeon menu.

 

Of course the accordeon menu is (built with) HTML. I'm no hero at HTML so there's another party that will develop the menu.

 

But I have to integrate the HTML menu into the indesign file like Rufus explains here:
http://tv.adobe.com/watch/muse-feature-tour/muse-creating-content-for- dps/

 

Each item of the menu will contain sveral buttons that eventuall should link to a page within the final DPS file.

 

But here comes the trick question:

Like I said earlier we want to integrate the menu into the DPS file. So if you click on the menu it should direct you to another page in the final DPS file...

Is it possible to use the native "navto://" code in the HTML file? Just like regular buttons inside of indesign do?

 

We're pretty stuck here... and I can't contact some HTML wizard on here, beacuse they mostly don't understand how indesign works...

 

Thanks in advance!

    Absolutely. Just provide the proper navto links to the HTML developer.

     

     

     

    Works like a charm.

    Why don't you use Muse to create the HTML Kevin, it has a nice Accordian Widget that is very easy to use?

    You need to link to the HTML in a web overlay, not copy it to InDesign.

    Do you have everything in the proper folders including any javascript?

    Everything, AFAIK, needs to be local and you're linking to an online script.

    Just download it from the link you have there now.

     

    Not sure what you mean by the second part.

    Anywhere you need them. Just treat them as though they were actual http links and use navto instead.

     

     

     

    This does work. I’ve used in a few projects.

    I'm glad you got it all sorted.
