Topic: Caption doesn't show

Hi, could anyone give me a hint  smile why I don't see the caption under the main image: http://www.bewegt.info/gallery1/index.htm

gallery.xml starts like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<simpleviewergallery maxImageWidth="445" maxImageHeight="350" textColor="0xFFFFFF" frameColor="0xFFFFFF" frameWidth="0" stagePadding="0" navPadding="0" thumbnailColumns="0" thumbnailRows="0" navPosition="left" vAlign="center" hAlign="center" title="nebellichter" enableRightClickOpen="false" backgroundImagePath="" imagePath="" thumbPath="">
<image>
    <filename>2009_02_20-146.jpg</filename>
    <caption>nebellichter "drei individuen, drei geschichten oder vielleicht ein und dieselbe...!?"</caption>   
</image>
....

some options.as variables:

static var captionUnderThumbs:Boolean = false;    

static var imageFrameColor:Number = null;
static var thumbnailFrameColor:Number = null;
static var pagingArrowsColor:Number = 0xFFFFFF;
static var captionTextColor:Number = 0xFFFFFF;
static var titleTextColor:Number = 0xFFFFFF;

Thanks in Advance.

Re: Caption doesn't show

I'm thinking that the captions maybe there, but they are being pushed off the stage. Try making your swf larger.

Re: Caption doesn't show

thanks for your input. i am assuming you are talking about this section in the index file: var fo = new SWFObject("viewer.swf", "viewer", "445", "350", "8", "#000000")
i changed both "445", "350" but still no caption. any other ideas?

Re: Caption doesn't show

I wasn't even thinking... captions wont show up unless you have thumbnails visible. In order to get the captions to show without thumbnails you will have to edit the source.

Re: Caption doesn't show

thanks. i am assuming with source you mean "StageManager.as". would you have any hint which part or do you know a place where i could get that information? thanks in advance.

Re: Caption doesn't show

In StageManager.as remove  "&& mThumbArea.pageSize > 0" from if (Options.showCaptions && mThumbArea.pageSize > 0){
