really this isn't about the image navigation arrows.. its about the thumbnail ones mainly.. as the image navigation arrows are better off hidden seeing as they default to overlaying ontop of the image.. where as the thumbnail nav arrows are not overlayed and are either side of the thumbnail strip here.. so it makes more sense to have both showing..

even a disabled arrow would look better in position than displaying nothing and then suddenly having an arrow show up.. 

anyway will sort it out my way.

well maybe as a future update

well the problem is that jquery ui tabs only looks for and accepts id="contact" and flash obviously doesn't bother passing that info...I mean it should pass the id to the browser page right? so that javascript could pick up on it?

Try <!&#91;CDATA&#91;<a href="yoursite.com/index.php#contact" id="contact">Contact</a>&#93;&#93; 

and this I thought might work aswel.. because if you goto the site using a url like

"localhost/index.php#contact" 

in the address bar... the jquery javascript function will pickup the #contact and switch to that tab on page load... but when using simpleviewer(while already on index.php) and using that same "index.php#contact" _self .... the address bar url will change and add #contact..... but it won't work and switch tab :(

right now the only way I can see this is working is if I make another actual page..  that just acts as a  redirect back to the same index.php page but with the #contact on the end.. which would kinda defeat the point of it being seamless but it should work I guess.


You can Also call Javascript functions in Actionscript with ExternalInterface.call&#40;&#41; or getURL&#40;&#41;. getURL&#40;"thePage.html#contact","_self"&#41;;

well unfortunately I'm not really that good with flash actionscripting just beginner...also I'm getting the feeling this is more of a problem with the jquery ui tab setup

as this bit of code

$&#40;"#contact"&#41;.click&#40;function &#40;&#41; &#123;
        $&#40;"#tabs"&#41;.tabs&#40;'select',4&#41;;

&#125;&#41;;

is only looking for id="contact" and not <a href="#contact" :(

Maybe someone else could take a look at it..  even with the tips of where to implement the actual changes, I don't have enough experience to make those changes.

And from looking at the ThumbArea.as, updating these "updateNav(), showPreviousPage() and showNextPage()" it would also require changing some other area to get the mousewheel looping behavior to work in both directions aswel?

how to pass a link from within a flash document so that it can change
the tab..

this works fine within the javascript on the page

$&#40;"#contact"&#41;.click&#40;function &#40;&#41; &#123;
        $&#40;"#tabs"&#41;.tabs&#40;'select',4&#41;;

&#125;&#41;;

and using this

<a href="#" id="contact">Contact</a>

to call it
---------
flash XML data....used in gallery.xml

<image>
        <filename>blahblah.jpg</filename>
        <caption>blahblah.jpg <!&#91;CDATA&#91;<a href="#" id="contact">Contact</a>&#93;&#93;
></caption>
</image> 

that doesn't work when used within flash.. so I'm guessing there must
be some other over confabulated way of doing it...

but how?? i'm sure they're plenty of ways of achieving what I want
that link to do.. which is change the jquery ui tab.. I was hoping I
could use href="#contact" and that could do it, but it only accepts
the id="contact"  ..and that is not getting through... some other way of passing this javascript link??

I want to know this aswel

show both arrows all the time.. and allow scrolling in the opposite direction..

currently I have it set to loop at the end of the thumbnails.. but I'd like to start the gallery with both arrows showing and allow the viewer to go in either direction..and not just forward.

So yeah looping in both directions not just one way looping like it is currently..

any actionscript adjustments for that?

and even better would be mouseOver arrow, smooth thumbnail scrolling in direction of arrow.

Anyway of getting the thumbnails to do smooth scrolling in the direction of whichever side the mouse position is on!??!?
