Various Mobile Output Questions

Postby carrier_andrew on Fri Aug 15, 2014 12:48 pm

I'm trying to do a couple of things:

1. Is there a way to align the Topic Toolbar to the right? I haven't been able to do so and I find having collapse/expand all and the home button all on the left makes things a little cluttered.
2. Is there a way to move the Home button somewhere else? This would help with Question 1.
3. Can search bar be added to Topics in mobile (In header or as QuickSearch button)

I think that's all for now, any help is greatly appreciated!

1. In your stylesheet, try setting the MadCap|topicToolbarProxy to float:right;

Answers to 2 & 3 require some CSS and/or script knowledge on your part:

2. The header/toolbar is part of the topic, so it should be possible to re-style it directly from your stylesheet. You'd need to investigate what styles are used in the output, and then add definitions for these styles in your own stylesheet, with whatever modifications you require.

3. You could do this by adding your own search form to the topic (master page). On the form submit, use a script to open the Search.htm page and append the term entered in the search box as the query; i.e. it would open /mobile/Advanced/Resources/Search.htm?query=searchTerm

For example, this is a search query for 'Flare' on the MadCap knowledgebase:
