14.8.8 Click Sequences

When documenting graphical interfaces, it is necessary to describe sequences such as ‘Click on ‘File’, then choose ‘Open’, then …’. Texinfo offers commands @clicksequence and click to represent this, typically used like this:

… @clicksequence{File @click{} Open} …

which produces:

… File → Open …

The @click command produces a right arrow by default; this glyph is also available independently via the command @arrow{}.

You can change the glyph produced by @click with the command @clickstyle, which takes a command name as its single argument on the rest of the line, much like @itemize and friends (see @itemize). The command should produce a glyph, and the usual empty braces ‘{}’ are omitted. Here’s an example:

@clickstyle @result
… @clicksequence{File @click{} Open} …

now produces:

… File ⇒ Open …
