First up, I love Simple viewer. Fantastic app, so customisable. However. I have a problem. I have searched high and low on the forum for a similar issue but there does not appear to be anyone else with this same error.

I will attempt to make this brief.

I purchased the Pro version of Simple viewer.

Totally understand how to do custom layout using the Options.as file.

I totally understand how to have multiple galleries of simple viewer all loaded into a Master SWF file. eg. wwwDOTdannykildareDOTcom

Each gallery loaded into the swf file is its own unique simpleviewer swf file. The only difference between each gallery swf file is the path to the XML file. Thus multiple galleries.

This system works flawlessly, HOWEVER

I am now developing another website using exactly the same technique. BUT with one difference. I have multple galleries, but the layouts vary slightly. i.e. size of images, position of titles etc.

Therefore I think...no problem. I simply change the Options file and some of the variables and export the separate gallery files. They are all different swf files so I should be able to load each of the galleries and get my different layouts. No problem.

BUT

I create the gallerys, all the different layout is correct. but here is the twist. Whatever gallery I load first loads all its layout correctly. But when I load a different gallery that is supposed to have a different layout, it SOMEHOW adheres to the first galleries Options.as file changes.

eg. wwwDOTliquidcreationsDOTcomDOTau/ssp

you will click on the link NEW POOLS

It loads the gallery fine with a nice big image.

Then you click on RENOVATIONS

You will see a bit of text to the right , but the image displayed is the same size as NEW POOLS gallery displaying right underneath the text.

NOW, if you reload the site and first goto RENOVATIONS
you will see that it formats the image size correctly, but then you click on NEW POOLS, and all the image sizes are small like in renovations.

QUESTION
This is not an issue with the XML file, as it is certainly referring to the correct files, and thus loading the correct images. It is definitly loading different simpleviwer swf galleries.

Is there something that you have programed in to the way the swf files work to store the options.as settings in cache somewhere? That is the only thing I can think of that is giving us this problem. Like I said, if your layout never has to change, then this problem is no big deal, but if you want different layout for different galleries, there is this wierd issue.

Any thoughts, really desparate to get this site up and running.

Thanks.

Ahhh,
I just discovered that to have the right click functionality. You need to have your master swf file as a flash 8. Bummer. I was hoping to keep it down at the flash 7 level for now, as flash 8 is still pretty new.

Anyway, hope that helps someone out there.

Peace

hi there, I am having the same problem with the right click function. I am loading my galleries into another SWF file using the loadmovie function. However, I fear that the right click function falls over when the viwer.swf movie is loaded into another swf, as the viwer.swf on its own does have the right click functionality.

I have made sure my master swf file is the same version of Flash 7...same as the new simpleviwerer pro swf file.

Any ideas as to how to fix this....do other people have this problem?

Cheers

Thanks for that, I am sure that will work, however, I only have version 1.7 of simpleviewer and I need to get the update. How can I go about getting the free update.

I have purchased the full version of Simpleviewer Pro and am having troubles with captions not wrapping. If the caption is a couple of sentenses, it is renderring the caption as one long line.

I have gone into the FLA file and made the text caption box smaller, but it does not seem to help.

Does anyone know of this problem?

Thanks

Customizing Gallery Title fonts is not supported in the free version of SimpleViewer. To achieve this you would need to purchase and modify the SimpleViewer Source Code.

Hi there, I am wanting to customize the title position in the FLA file in SimpleviwerPRO, but I cant seem to find the variable title holder in the FLA file.

What is it called and where can I find it.

Thanks
