Topic: Can't get transparent background to work.

Please help, I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong! I can't see in the SV builder where to set the transparent background. So in my embed code, I change it to this:
   

SV.simpleviewer.load('sv-container', '100%', '100%', 'transparent', true); 

And in my parameters, I add:
   

backgroundTransparent="true"

The background is showing a bright green.

Re: Can't get transparent background to work.

try this:

<div id="sv-container" style="background-color:#000"></div>

change the color you prefer smile

Re: Can't get transparent background to work.

Thanks, but that doesn't work. I can't specify a color because I want the background to be transparent.

Re: Can't get transparent background to work.

You can set the background to be transparent in svBuilder by selecting the 'Background Transparent' checkbox on the 'Customize' screen.
On sv-Builder-Pro, the 'Background Transparent' checkbox can be found in the 'Customize -> Embed Options' section.

Please note that the background will not be transparent in fullscreen mode.
If you want to set a background color for fullscreen mode, you can set the bgcolor Flash parameter in the embedding code like this:

<!--START SIMPLEVIEWER EMBED.-->
<script type="text/javascript" src="svcore/js/simpleviewer.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
var params={};
params.bgcolor="ffffff";
jQuery(document).ready(function () {
SV.simpleviewer.load("sv-container", "100%", "100%", "222222", true, null, params);
});
</script>
<div id="sv-container"></div>
<!-- END SIMPLEVIEWER EMBED -->

Re: Can't get transparent background to work.

Hi Steven,

I still don't see an option to select a transparent background.

In the svBuilder, Customize -> Embed Options I see 4 options:

Gallery Width
Gallery Height
Background Color
Use Flash Checkbox

Thank you.

Re: Can't get transparent background to work.

It sounds like you are using an older version of svBuilder-Pro.
You can check your version by selecting 'Help -> About svBuilder-Pro...' from the drop-down menu at the top.
The most recent version is v2.1.2 and can be found in the latest SimpleViewer Pro download package.
You can download the latest SimpleViewer Pro package using the link sent to you in your purchase email (as long as the version you purchased is the same major version number).
The 'svBuilder-Pro.air' file can be found directly inside the zip package.
Uninstall your current version, install the new version and you should see 2 new options in the 'Customize -> Embed Options' section, namely Background Transparent and Use Color Correction.
