<anchor> element provides an integration point that another map can reference in order to insert its navigation into the referenced map's navigation tree. For those familiar with Eclipse help systems, this serves the same purpose as the
<anchor> element in that system. It might not be supported for all output formats.
The mechanism by which map processors discover maps to be anchored is processor specific.
<anchor> element is typically used to allow integration of
run-time components. For build-time integration, you can use a
<topicref> element to reference another map, or use the
@conkeyref attribute on an element inside the
See appendix for information about this element in OASIS document type shells.
<anchor>element with an
@idattribute set to "a1".
<map> <title>MyComponent tasks</title> <topicref navtitle="Start here" href="start.dita" toc="yes"> <navref mapref="othermap2.ditamap"/> <navref mapref="othermap3.ditamap"/> <anchor id="a1"/> </topicref> </map>
<anchor>element can be referenced by the
@anchorrefattribute on another map's
<map>element. For example, the map to be integrated at that spot could be defined as follows.
<map anchorref="map1.ditamap#a1"> <title>This map is pulled into the MyComponent task map</title> <!-- ... --> </map>
@anchorrefattribute on a map can be used to reference this attribute. See ID attribute for more details.
