jVLT - a vocabulary learning tool

Menu Entries
The example tab contains two main components: The example list and an information area that displays the example currently selected in the example list. If you click on one of the words in the information area, the vocabulary tab is activated and the respective word is selected. Like the vocabulary tab, the example tab contains a "Filter" text field. If you insert a string into it and press the button with the check mark or the "Enter" key, then only those examples are shown that contain the entered string. You can insert, change or remove examples by pressing the buttons next to the example list.

Example tab

Adding examples

There are two basic steps to perform when creating a new example:
  1. Enter the example text and (optionally) a translation,
  2. create the links to your vocabulary words.
When entering example text and translation, you can use the HTML tags <b>, <br>, <i> and <p> to format the text. You will see the result of the formatting in the preview area immediately.

In order to create a link to a word, you first have to select the text portion of the example text which you want to link to a word. This string is automatically entered in the "Filter" text field in the "Create link" section of the dialog. You can edit the string if the selected string is not suitable. For example, if you have an example containing the string "made" which you want to link to the word "to make", then you will have to change the automatically entered string "made" into "to make" or some substring of it.

After the filter is applied you get a list of matching words. Each word item contains a list of subitems which stand for the meanings of the word. In order to create a link you have to select one of the meanings of one of the words and press the "Add" button. If you want to remove a link, select it from the list below the "Translation" text field and click "Remove".
