Adds an option to the "Settings" charm based on an external HTML file for the Windows 8 JavaScript target module.


win8_settingscharm_add_html_entry(id, name, htmlpath);

Argument Description
id The id (a string) of the new options. This must be the same as the "data-win-options" from the HTML file!
name The name of the option to add to the charm.
htmlpath Full path to the HTML file to use

Returns: N/A


This function is similar to the win8_settingscharm_add_entry only this time you can define your own slide-out menu and options from an external HTML file.

The "id" argument is given as a string and must be exactly the same as the data-win-options specified in the HTML file you are using (there is an example HTML file here). You can then give your new options a name and finally you need to add in the path to get to the HTML file. You can find an example of how the HTML should be formatted from the YoYo Games Knowledge Base article HTML and XAML Examples For The Windows 8 Settings Charm.

NOTE: This function is for the Windows 8 JavaScript target module only. For Windows 8 Native support, please see win8_settingscharm_add_xaml_entry.


win8_settingscharm_add_html_entry("defaults", "News", "News.html");

The above code will create a new option within the settings "charm" called "News" which when presses, will open the exported HTML file.
