Topic: BG image fill

Wow, very impressed with Sviewer Pro in combo with PS and DW CS4 etc etc..

I'm still blocking up my photo website and trying to stay with the same old background. Its the old style of little 2x2 pixel that fills a whole page by 'repeat' etc.

Unfortunately, I'm not flash savvy enough to figure out how to make it play nice with SViewer when embedding it to my site's pages.. nor can I figure out how to make the BG colour nice and black if unable to do the repeat image.

My test page unfortunately is a "not safe for work +18 artistic nude" gallery I'm working on.. sorry to offend..    http://www.eastcoastphotos.com/simple/lenore.html

If you hit the back button, it will go to the home page. But if you hit the Full Screen button it won't work.  As I said, I'm not flash savvy so I'm not sure what I need to do to marry this all up.

Quite impressed with this set up..  thanks..

Cheers

Re: BG image fill

Easiest way to do it would be to change <param name="wmode" value="opaque"> to <param name="wmode" value="transparent">

thanks Mike, I gave it a try, i found the string in the lenore.html page and changed it, but it does not make any changes to the web page..

I have the thumbnails to change with the wheel mouse but this also no longer works, same as the go to full screen button. I take it a lot of things are disabled when you embed the gallery within a web page? Now I discover that some features work with IE but not Firefox and vice versa. How decent..

Is the editing of the caption only feasible by editing the XML page with a text editor after the pages have been built up?

Thanks for the info..

Re: BG image fill

The way you are embedding the gallery you have make the wmode change twice.

    <object id="FlashID" classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" width="800" height="600">
      <param name="movie" value="simpleviewer.swf">
    <params.bgcolor = "222222";>
      <param name="quality" value="high">
      <param name="wmode" value="opaque">
      <param name="swfversion" value="9.0.45.0">
      <!-- This param tag prompts users with Flash Player 6.0 r65 and higher to download the latest version of Flash Player. Delete it if you don’t want users to see the prompt. -->
      <param name="expressinstall" value="Scripts/expressInstall.swf">
      <!-- Next object tag is for non-IE browsers. So hide it from IE using IECC. -->

      <!--[if !IE]>-->
      <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="simpleviewer.swf" width="800" height="600">
        <!--<![endif]-->
        <param name="quality" value="high">
       <param name="wmode" value="transparent">
        <param name="swfversion" value="9.0.45.0">
        <param name="expressinstall" value="Scripts/expressInstall.swf">
        <!-- The browser displays the following alternative content for users with Flash Player 6.0 and older. -->
        <div>

          <h4>Content on this page requires a newer version of Adobe Flash Player.</h4>
          <p><a href="http://www.adobe.com/go/getflashplayer"><img src="http://www.adobe.com/images/shared/download_buttons/get_flash_player.gif" alt="Get Adobe Flash player" width="112" height="33" /></a></p>

      </object>
      <!--<![endif]-->

I have the thumbnails to change with the wheel mouse but this also no longer works, same as the go to full screen button.

When wmode is used the mouse wheel functionality is inconsistent, this is an issue with flash.

There is a workaround that uses javascript that could be integrated with the api functions for showNextImage() and showPreviousImage().

Now I discover that some features work with IE but not Firefox and vice versa. How decent..

The gallery should run the same in all browsers and operating systems if it is embedded properly.

Is the editing of the caption only feasible by editing the XML page with a text editor after the pages have been built up?

The best way to change the captions is to edit the xml in a text editor.

Re: BG image fill

Thanks Mike..  If I used the DW "embed" menu tool, it doesn't quite it right causing some issues. However if I manually embed the codes from the "Embed Options" and set the size properly, then everything works again..

Unfortunately the BG image in the gallery simply doesn't what to show properly as it shows on the web page BG.

Oddly enough I like the effect it has on the gallery page anyway... so I'll leave it alone for now..
