Topic: Background jpg, tile possibble?

Hi,  Felix and community

My prob is the background.
Before i used wmode =transparent but in mozilla the page gets very slow
I googled and found that "multiple swfs in mozilla causing slowdownd when wmode=transparent"
In my page all images and thumbnails are swfs .;)
Yes thats true, if i delete that param, my pages fast in both ie and mozilla (win/linux) So i think i must live without background jpg
But now i dload V1.8, and recognized new xml option "background image"
I tried, and it work great without slowdown in mozilla and i have background jpg
But unfortunately the little jpg not tiled, it magnified to fullscr
Is it a way to make background tiled? :?:

Thanks.....(you can see what i talk, here: http://www.el-co.hu/s5vi )

Re: Background jpg, tile possibble?

There isnt a way to tile a background JPG. You can load a SWF as the background image and tile an image in the swf.

Re: Background jpg, tile possibble?

Thanks for your tip Felix,

Meanwhile i tried that, i make a 1600x1200 swf tiled with my jpg (filesize will be very small! original jpg=1.7k big swf=1.7k)

I have a prob when i resize browser window. Background swf also resized. sad
But the result is quite good this is a minor prob. (I will try to set noresize in background swf)
My goal is, my page and swf's fill browser's window 100%.
Simpleviewer is good, automatically resized and follow  window size correctly.

Flash ho, my page is permanently upgraded, and changed. but usually available. Main multilanguage page at http://www.el-co.hu
english page to introduce applications developed by me is: http://www.el-co.hu/eng/s5vi/index.html

Re: Background jpg, tile possibble?

Last night i found it.

I fighted with background image problem
I want to "noresize" image when window is resized, or screen resolution changed.

1. try: set backgroundImagePath="bg.jpg" in gallery.xml file.
Bad, the image not tiled but resized to fullscr, quite ugly, my jpg is 200x100.

2. try: make a 1600x1200 tiled swf from this jpg.
Bad, the swf itself resizes.

3. try: make Stage.scaleMode="noScale" in flash
Good, the swf not resizes the image.
But bad, when i set backgroundImagePath="bg.swf" in gallery.xml file, Simpleviewer force to resize that bg.swf

4. try: Make a master swf name comboview.swf, and invoke viever.swf, and bg.swf (which is noScaled, see 3.try)

loadMovieNum( "viewer.swf",10);
loadMovieNum( "bg.swf",9);

This works as i want. bg picture tiled and its size not changed when i resize window.
Overhead in size is minimal master comboview.swf is 127 byte, and bg swf is 1.7kbyte (this is a 200x100 jpg tiled up 1600x1200)
