Glossary Maintenance System

ToolBook has the ability to quickly and simply link a glossary to your application. This can either be a separate book or a background called glossary in your main application. By creating hotwords in your main book and then creating pages in the glossary book, ToolBook will link these together without any OpenScript. When your users click a hotword then the glossary item will pop up automatically.

What is the Glossary Maintenance?

The Glossary Maintenance is designed to automate and assist you with the creation and maintenance of the glossary books. It includes many functions and features that affect the look and feel of your glossary and how it relates to your main application.

Why Do I Need the Glossary Maintenance?

The Glossary Maintenance set of routines will allow you to control the maintenance of a single glossary for multiple ToolBook programs and/or multiple glossaries too:-)

How Does the Glossary Maintenance Work During Development?

By adding the Glossary Maintenance Widget (from the Catalog) to your ToolBook program you will be able start creating glossary items immediately:-)

The following steps show just how simple this product is to implement:

  1. First create your Glossary Maintenance book using the tools provided.

    NOTE:  If you have an existing glossary then you would import the items into your new Glossary Maintenance book at this stage.

  2. Add the Glossary Maintenance Widget to your existing ToolBook program

That's it! Simple right?

At this point you can start using all of the great features of this product.
