There are four main parts to each page of the Development Guide: table of contents, search field, toolbar, and body. The first page of the Development Guide is your landing page when the documentation opens.
Navigating Within These Documents
You can read the documents by navigating the:
Table of contents pane
Search fields
Toolbar buttons
Forward/backward browse arrows
Breadcrumbs
In-text menus
Body pane in the browser
Read the following topics to learn how to use each of these browsing features. As the Development Guide and API Reference are created by different tools, some navigation features behave differently in each document.
Table of Contents
You can use the table of contents (TOC) to browse the Development Guide chapter-by-chapter. The TOC appears at the left in the browser window.

To search for whole words
Enter the word in the Search field and press ENTER.
The word must be two or more characters in length.
To search for phrases
Enclose the list of words in quotation marks in the Search field.

To search for embedded strings in longer strings

For information on searching for APIs, see the Welcome page in the API Reference.
Toolbar Buttons
There are several toolbar buttons. Those shown below represent the main buttons at the time of this release may not be a complete set for later releases.
Table of Contents Show/Hide Button
The Table of Contents (TOC) can be disabled or hidden.
To disable or hide the TOC
Click the Contents button to show (or hide) the navigation pane.
When the navigation pane is enabled, the button looks grey (circled in red) and the Table of Contents appears below it:
When the navigation pane is disabled (hidden), the button looks blue and the navigation pane disappears:
Glossary Button
Clicking the Glossary button opens the Glossary pane where you can click links to see the definitions of the terms.
Home Button
Clicking the Home button returns you to the first page in the document, the landing page that opens when you open the document.
API Button
You can open the API Reference by clicking the API button on the toolbar.
This opens the API Reference in another tab in your browser, keeping the Development Guide open in the original tab. You can navigate back-and-forth by clicking the desired browser tab.
By default, the API Reference Table of Contents stays synchronized to the page you jump to; however, you can disable this synchronization to maintain focus on one page while using links to jump to other pages. This helps you find your way back to where you started.
To enable or disable TOC synchronization in the API Reference
Click the round Arrow button in the upper right of the navigation pane.
When synchronization is enabled, the Arrow button looks like a complete two-headed arrow (circled in red):
And the TOC highlighting will move to the topic you jump to after you click a link.
When synchronization is disabled, the Arrow button looks like a broken two-headed arrow:
And the TOC highlighting remains on the topic you were focused on when you clicked the button to disable TOC synchronization.
