# Beamer presentation: List of frames within a section / part

With reference to Is there any way to produce List of frames with beamer?

how can this be done so as to only list the frames contained within a section in the title slide for that section, assuming a multi section/part presentation.

Here's ome possible solution generating a list of all frames used in a section, on a per section basis; here I used a simple modification of the answer you linked to; the boolean \ifframeinlbf allows to include (if true) or to exclude (if false) specific frames in the corresponding list:

\documentclass{beamer}
\usetheme{Berkeley}

\newif\ifframeinlbf
\frameinlbftrue

\makeatletter
\newcommand\listofframes{\vfill\@starttoc{lbf\thesection}}
\makeatother

\ifframeinlbf
\insertframetitle\vfill}%
\else\fi%
}

\begin{document}

\section{Test Section One}

\frameinlbffalse
\begin{frame}
\frametitle{List of Frames for Section One}
\listofframes
\end{frame}

\frameinlbftrue
\begin{frame}
\frametitle{Test Frame One One}
test
\end{frame}

\begin{frame}
\frametitle{Test Frame One Two}
test
\end{frame}

\section{Test Section Two}

\frameinlbffalse
\begin{frame}
\frametitle{List of Frames for Section Two}
\listofframes
\end{frame}

\frameinlbftrue
\begin{frame}
\frametitle{Test Frame Two One}
test
\end{frame}

\begin{frame}
\frametitle{Test Frame Two Two}
test
\end{frame}

\begin{frame}
\frametitle{Test Frame Two Three}
test
\end{frame}

\end{document}


And the frames showing the lists of frames for each section:

One thing that can be improved is that this solution uses an auxiliary file for each section.

Thanks for your reply. It works as you have demonstrated. However, if I were to take – Shrihari May 25 '12 at 1:13
@Shrihari perhaps you comment got cut. I don't understand the last sentence: "If I were to take"... – Gonzalo Medina May 25 '12 at 1:17
Thanks for your reply. It works as you have demonstrated. However, if I were to add an [allowframebreaks] tag to any frame that is to be listed in the lbf file (e.g any of the Test Frames), it would result in an error - "Argument of \beamer@usebeamertemplatedosss has an extra }". Assuming the [allowframebreaks] is necessary, can the solution be modified to work with it ? – Shrihari May 25 '12 at 1:20
@Shrihari I don't see an easy solution so perhaps it would be best to accept this answer (in case of doubt, please see How do you accept an answer? and open a fresh question with this issue. Follow-up questions like this are more than welcome! In your new question you can link to this question to provide the background. – Gonzalo Medina May 25 '12 at 1:31
thanks for your help. Will do. – Shrihari May 25 '12 at 1:40
