Topic: Button bar in bottom position inactive when float = true

Following customization:
Float Button Bar = true
Button Bar Position = bottom

renders all button bar buttons inactive (no mouse click action possible)

Works only when float Button Bar = false in that position.
No problem when Button Bar Position not bottom.
Tried with shorter caption width to no avail.

Otherwise: Super!

Re: Button bar in bottom position inactive when float = true

I have just created a test gallery setting:

buttonBarPosition="BOTTOM"
floatButtonBar="FALSE"

... and keeping all other settings as default.
The buttons on the Button Bar work fine in my test gallery.
Make sure you are using the most recent version of SimpleViewer (v2.2.0): http://www.simpleviewer.net/simpleviewe … grade.html
If you continue to experience difficulties, please post the URL to your gallery so that we can take a look.

Re: Button bar in bottom position inactive when float = true

No the problem setting is Float Button Bar = "TRUE".
With this setting the button bar stays beside the caption instead of below the caption div.
Here is the url of the test:

Thanks for checking again. Looks like the div with the buttons is overlapped by the div with the caption in that case, even when the Caption Width is reduced not to reach  to the button bar. When I choose Caption Position ="NONE" it works.

Re: Button bar in bottom position inactive when float = true

Sorry. My test gallery did actually use:

buttonBarPosition="BOTTOM"
floatButtonBar="TRUE"

... and worked fine. I just somehow typed 'false' when posting.

Having taken a look at the layout of your gallery, the Caption Area and Button Bar do inhabit the same space and the caption takes precedence. (If the Button Bar took precedence, then caption links would not work. It would be impossible for both to work simultaneously.)
captionWidth works only when captionPosition="LEFT" or captionPosition="RIGHT".
The solution is to ensure that the Button Bar does not overlap the Caption Area.

Re: Button bar in bottom position inactive when float = true

OK. I understand that both areas if bottom extend all the way below the main image when the thumbnails area is right of the image.
I thought that some Z-indexes were used. But then- if different layers were involved - it wouldn't reposition well when changing the window size.
Anyway I moved the button bar to the top of the thumb area. See actual at:

Is there a way to hide the page indication 1/18 when we would like to position the button bar = bottom & right?

Thanks for your snappy support!

Re: Button bar in bottom position inactive when float = true

'z-index' is used in CSS to stack elements on an HTML page but not within a Flash presentation.

Is there a way to hide the page indication 1/18 when we would like to position the button bar = bottom & right?

The 'Image Number' can be disabled by setting showImageNumber="FALSE" in your gallery's XML file.
A description of this option can be found in the 'Caption Options' section of the 'SimpleViewer-Pro Config Options' page: http://simpleviewer.net/simpleviewer/pr … ml#caption
