Topic: Hyperlink Hot-Spot Problem in SWF Image Files
I am not only using Auto Viewer Pro to display photo images, but also text based images I have created and these images also contain URL links I have added to them within the Flash SWF files. As a result, I am now having a problem with most of the "Get URL" links that I place within the SWF files to work properly when running in Auto Viewer Pro.
The issue is that the Viewer.SWF file makes almost the entire display area of the picture a button hit spot for advancing the "Next" and "Back" buttons which are used to advance the image forward and backward in Auto Viewer Pro. Why the hit area does not only fall within the area of the "Next" and "Back" buttons themselves is also a mystery to me.
Because of this though, the bigger problem is that most of my Get URL links in the SWF files are not active when you put your mouse over them. Instead, the mouse-over action activates the "Next" and "Back" buttons instead.
I did find though as long as the Get URL links are placed towards the bottom of the picture area that they work OK, but often I want to place them at the top or middle of the image and then it is just impossible.
I have gone though the Options file carefully and tried various settings in the //controls options section of Auto Viewer Pro to try and reduce the area of the button hit spots, but all is to no avail.
If you go to the following link and advance to the second image you will see a whole bunch of Get URL links that are at the top of the image (they are the text areas in orange color) and none of them are active at all. If you put your mouse over them to try and click on any of them, all you get is the "Next" and "Back" buttons appearing as I mentioned:
Any ideas on how to reduce the hit area for the "Next" and "Back" buttons so that the Get URL links in the SWF file become visible and active to the user would be much much appreciated.
