Topic: Custom Full Screen Background Image

Searched and could not find anything, I'm trying to make a background image appear when the gallery is full screen. I don't want it to change anything with the normal size gallery at all if possible.

Tried several things, like adding the backgroundURL field in gallery.xml, not sure if I did that correctly or not.

Thanks.

Re: Custom Full Screen Background Image

An image set using backgroundURL will be displayed in both normal and fullscreen modes.

Relative or absolute URL to a JPG or SWF to load as the gallery background. Set to "" to disable background image.
Relative paths are relative to the HTML document that embeds SimpleViewer.

eg.

<simpleviewergallery
    backgroundURL="images/background_image.jpg"
>

In svBuilder-Pro, this setting can be found under 'Customize -> Background Image'.

Thanks for the help, but I'm still unable to get this to work. Is this an option in the Pro version only?

Thanks again.

Re: Custom Full Screen Background Image

Yes. backgroundURL is a Pro-only option.
You posted your query in the SimpleViewer-Pro v2 forum rather than the SimpleViewer v2 forum so I inferred that you had SimpleViewer-Pro.
With SimpleViewer Standard, it is not possible to have a background image in fullscreen mode as backgroundURL is a Pro-only option and background transparency does not work in fullscreen mode (which would be required for an HTML background to show through).
