ods html tagset - table of contents not generated

Hi guys, I've found several examples of generating a table of contents with the html tagset but for some reason I can't seem to get it working.. Using SAS 9.2 I run:

ods html file="u:\exampl1.html" options(body_toc='yes');
proc print data=sashelp.class;run;
proc print data=sashelp.class;run;
ods _all_ close;

The result is an html doc with both reports but no table of contents off to the side like I would expect. What am I missing?

Re: ods html tagset - table of contents not generated

Hi:
BODY_TOC is a valid sub-option for ODS HTMLPANEL, and it has been shown as a sub-option for the new HTML 5 tagset template ... but it is not a sub-option that works with my current production version of the ODS HTML destination tagset (as delivered in 9.2.2).

You can generate an HTML 4 TOC with a "FRAMESET", but you must use different syntax:
[pre]
ods html path='c:\temp' (url=none)
file="exampbod.html"
contents="examptoc.html"
frame="exampfrm.html"
options(doc='Help');
title 'Using regular ODS HTML';
proc print data=sashelp.class;run;
proc print data=sashelp.class;run;
ods _all_ close;
[/pre]

If you look in the SAS log, you will see the valid sub-options for the current ODS HTML destination. To see the TOC, open the FRAME= file -- that is the HTML <FRAME> file that defines how the BODY and CONTENTS files should be displayed.

If your question is about the examples that were in this paper --
http://support.sas.com/resources/papers/proceedings10/005-2010.pdf
that highlighted some of the new changes to the HTML tagset so it would be HTML 5 compliant and not require a FRAME file, then you might want to check out the zip file of examples that is available for download at this site:
http://support.sas.com/rnd/base/ods/odshtml/

Generally, when new features like this are shown at SAS Global Forum it means that you must download an updated tagset template to replicate the paper's examples. And there is a TPL file in that zip download which I suspect contains the HTML 5 tagset template where BODY_TOC has been enabled.

As always, you've been a great help. That was exactly the paper I was looking at and for the life of me couldn't figure out why it wasn't working. Not having the updated html tagset was the issue. Thanks!

Ok 1 more small problem.. I updated the tagset and for some reason even when the body_toc = 'no' the report is still pushed to the right as if the toc was on.. any ideas?

Hi:
You might wish to work with Tech Support on this one. If there is a problem in the new tagset template that needs to be fixed, this is the appropriate way to make that change happen.

To open a track with Tech Support, fill out the form at this link:
http://support.sas.com/ctx/supportform/createForm

(and be sure to let them know that you are using the new version of the tagset template and possibly reference your forum post in the track.)
