Now, i think is not done very well.

The mail came from

Airtight Interactive Inc. (via Google Checkout)" <noreply@cbg.bounces.google.com

The download URL points to

https://www.e-junkie.com/...

and the final download is at

https://www.fatfreecartpro.com/...

This is NOT easy to remember or find again in the mails!
I needed nearly 2 hours to find this out!

:-|


Why don´t you host this at simpleviewer.com or any other site of your company?!?

Maybe i am searching wrong?

Did this mail come from simpleviewer.net?

Hello,
i searched my mail, but could not find a download for 2.3.1 ...

Where could i get it from?

Thank you!

Steven, this works like a charm!
Thank you very much!

As feedback on Universal Playback, this is a great option - but mostly for mobile device IMHO, as the interface is just too simple for a regular webbrowser on a desktop or laptop.

Also, there is one mistake (i think) in this: Images will not stop being enlarged when reaching their actual size, what means that on a regular webbrowser, images will be enlarged to fit the browser windows - or the complete screen - regardless of the setting in "imageScaleMode".

So, Universal Playback behaves like "imageScaleMode" set to "SCALE_UP" - which i feel is wrong.

I now tried to solve this with multiple functions ... even if that feel cumbersome ...

Any more elegant solution would be appreciated, of course :D

<script type="text/javascript">
function gal1()
{
    var page="1_Polaroid.html"
    if (swfobject.hasFlashPlayerVersion("10.0.0"))
    {
        page="400/1/Polaroid/index.html";
    }
    return page;
}
function gal2()
{
    var page="2_Polaroid.html"
    if (swfobject.hasFlashPlayerVersion("10.0.0"))
    {
        page="400/2/Polaroid/index.html";
    }
    return page;
}
function gal3()
{
    var page="4_Polaroid.html"
    if (swfobject.hasFlashPlayerVersion("10.0.0"))
    {
        page="400/4/Polaroid/index.html";
    }
    return page;
}
</script>

Thanks for your hint!
:)

Thank you very much!

Your support, BTW, is realy fantastic!
Thanks.

Do you also have an idea about how to used the above construction to have more than one such decision between JavaScript and Flash?

More concrete, i have HTML pages with lots of galleries - and would like to have clicking on them either open the Flash version with SimpleViewer, or the older version that just uses JavaScript instead.

But this would require to have more than of this one "#" parameters as href ... if i managed to make myself understandable :)

Maybe "#1", "#2" or something like this works?

<td>Gallery 1:<a href="#1" target="_blank" onclick="this.href=checkFlash();"><img src="400/Polaroid1/title.jpg" alt="index1.html" border="no"></a></td>
<td>Gallery 2:<a href="#2" target="_blank" onclick="this.href=checkFlash();"><img src="400/Polaroid2/title.jpg" alt="index2.html" border="no"></a></td>
<td>Gallery 3:<a href="#3" target="_blank" onclick="this.href=checkFlash();"><img src="400/Polaroid3/title.jpg" alt="index3.html" border="no"></a></td>
...

I will send you my stuff per mail, if i may :)

Currently, i use the following for detecting JavaScript:

<noscript>
        <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;URL=js.html" />
</noscript>

And after that, some JavaScript function to detect Flash, which i proudly copied from http://www.techmug.com/detect-javascrip … sh-enabled

<script type="text/javascript">
<!--
var MM_contentVersion = 9;
var plugin = (navigator.mimeTypes && navigator.mimeTypes["application/x-shockwave-flash"]) ? navigator.mimeTypes["application/x-shockwave-flash"].enabledPlugin : 0;
if ( plugin )
{
        var words = navigator.plugins["Shockwave Flash"].description.split(" ");
        for (var i = 0; i < words.length; ++i)
        {
                if (isNaN(parseInt(words[i])))
                continue;
                var MM_PluginVersion = words[i];
        }
        var MM_FlashCanPlay = MM_PluginVersion >= MM_contentVersion;
}
else if (navigator.userAgent && navigator.userAgent.indexOf("MSIE")>=0
   && (navigator.appVersion.indexOf("Win") != -1)) {
    document.write('<SCR' + 'IPT LANGUAGE=VBScript> n'); //FS hide this from IE4.5 Mac by splitting the tag
    document.write('on error resume next n');
    document.write('MM_FlashCanPlay = ( IsObject(CreateObject("ShockwaveFlash.ShockwaveFlash." & MM_contentVersion)))n');
    document.write('</SCR' + 'IPT> n');
}

if ( MM_FlashCanPlay )
{
    document.write('<object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=9,0,0,0" width="160" height="120">');
    document.write('<param name="movie" value="animation.swf">');
    document.write ('<param name="quality" value="high">');
    document.write ('<param name="wmode" value="transparent">');
    document.write('<embed src="animation.swf" width="160" height="120" quality="high" pluginspage="http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/download.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent"></embed></object>');
} else
{
    document.write('<a href="./"><img src="replaced-image.png" alt="Flash Plugin not Installed" border="0"></a>');

My problem, being not experienced in such questions, how to easily change my HTML output based on Flash being installed or not ...

For example, i have an image that opens a JavaScript gallery - i wish that line to open the SimpleViewer gallery instead, when Flash is enabled:

Code for JavaScript:

<td>Gallery 1:<a href="Polaroids.html" target="_blank"><img src="400/Polaroid/title.jpg" alt="Polaroid.html" border="no"></a></td>

Code for Flash:

<td>Gallery 1:<a href="index.html" target="_blank"><img src="400/Polaroid/title.jpg" alt="index.html" border="no"></a></td>

So, based on Flash being available or not either "Polaroids.html" or "index.html" should be opened ...
Such lines would appear several times in the calling page - having multiple galleries with the same situation.

And i cannot find an easy way to do this :-(

Any idea?

Thanks :)

Thanks a bunch!

Re-reading what i wrote, i assume that linkURL and linkTarget can possibly be used to open some other URL when clicking on the image?

But that would require to disable the regular behavior first - going to the next or previous images.

Right?!?

Hello,
i cannot find a documentation of the statements imageURL, thumbURL and linkURL, ...

It seems, that relative URLs can be used, but not URLS with absolute pathes like "/www/images/1.jpg"

From the description of "getImageInfo" on http://www.simpleviewer.net/simpleviewe … t/api.html, i got the impression, that the URLs need to be relative - i suppose, this is true?

But i still don´t understand what the following means:

# linkURL (String) - optional click URL.
# linkTarget (String) - optional click target.

linkURL regulary seems to be the same as imageURL, but testing with different values did not change anything.
The same is true for linkTarget when changing from "_blank" to "_self".

Maybe, my browser cache is preventing something?

I thought, a "force reload" (Shift + Reload in FireFox) should make the reload sure - but this did not work in some cases.

I am going to test with explicit Cache clearing!
Thank you.

Ah, i understand!

Could you possible just add that to the description of "backButtonText"?
It currently lists a default of "< Back", instead of "&lt; Back" which leaded to my confusion :)

Anyway, the default in fact seems to be empty!
Nothing is shown until i set the variable ...

Thank you!

Hello,
it seems, that Page-up/-down buttons as well as Home- and End-buttons do not work in Full Screen mode?

Is that on purpose?
Can i change that somehow?

Or does that not work at all?

Thank you!

Hello,
it seems, that the "Back Button" is shown by default, not was is said in the docu - but no text is displayed!

But, i get errors "Cannot Parse Gallery XML" when adding showBackButton="false" or when trying to set the text itself:

backButtonText="Back"
Does work ...

backButtonText="< Back"
Does not work!

It seems, some things are cached somewhere ...
After restarting the webbrowser and reaload the page, things changed - but i have the impression, that some variables stay at the last set value and are not reset to the default value automatically!

That means, after setting some variables, you cannot just delete them in "gallery.xml" - you need to first set the variable to it´s default values and only after that, you can remove the lines from that file.

Quite strange.

But, i could fix my problems :)

But nothing worked!

Am i doing something wrong?

Any idea?
:-(

Thank you!

I am creating my own thumbs right now (mostly using FastStone ImageViwer) - but as i already love SV, i would like to help getting it even better!

I already already impressed several collegues with your great software :)

Too sharp?

I beg to differ ...

In my experience, the thumbnails are not sharp enough and have low quality (even at Q99)!

I would show you examples, but cannot find a way to attach the JPGs ...

Could you give a mail-adresse where i could send them to?

Thank you :)

I am very, very happy with the following:

        imageTransitionType="none"
        imageNavStyle="cursor"

        enableAPI="true"
        thumbPreloading="all"
        thumbLoadBrightness="2"
        showThumbLoadBar="false"
        doThumbPopOut="false"
        thumbNavSlideTime="0"
        showThumbnailVisited="false"
        thumbWidth="120"
        thumbHeight="120"

        useFlickr="false"
        resizeOnImport="false"
        cropToFit="false"
        thumbColumns="1"
        thumbRows="5"
        enableLooping="false"
        enableMouseWheel="true"
        changeImageOnHover="false"
        showDownloadButton="true"
        showNavButtons="true"
        showAutoPlayButton="true"
        displayTime="3"
        showBackButton="true"
        maxImageWidth="1024"
        maxImageHeight="768"
        imageQuality="99"
        thumbQuality="99"

For this, i created square thumbnails 120x120 that have thick white borders to make the 3:2 ratio images in landscape or portrait mode the same as original square images - also i made the thumbs in black and white.

Only thing i do not undestand - as i cannot see a difference regardless the setting - is enableAPI ....

What´s your favorite?

My wishes:

1) Add support for thumbs of images with different ratios (landscape, square, portrait).

2) Additionally, and as a workaround for the above, allow creation of thumbnails with a surrounding square, so that nothing will be cropped or resized.

3) Allow to add *good* and configurable sharpening for created thumbnails

4) Allow to add *good* and configurable sharpening for scaled images (due to screensize)

5) Allow for "Mouse-Wheel" not only for the images, but also to change the thumbnails when the mouse if hovering  exactly over the thumbnails (like with the navagation buttons).
This way, one can easily jump between both images and the shown part of the galleries thumbnails!
(If that was understandable ... please ask, if not)

6) Allow to make the "numeric" type of thumbnail-navigation more small.
Just show "first, previous, current, next and last" part of the gallery.

For example, when you are in gallery part 7 of 27, show: "1 6 7 8 ... 27"

7) Add a new button style for the thumbnail navigation buttons: same buttons as in the toplevel menu (back, forth, download, ...). Looks better, when all buttons with the same effect also look the same :)
The "cursor" type images could also benefit from the same graphics!


Thank you!

Nevertheless, i already bought SV :)

I am new to SV - and *love* it.

But i am missing better control over the creation (esp. sharpening) of scaled images and thumbnails!


Currently my workaround for this is to create thumbs by myself and add a new border around them, so that they are square with white borders.

This way, the ratio will not be broken / nothing cropped (which i hate most) :)

If you cannot image, send me a PM and i can show you an example gallery :)

Continue the Good Work!

Thanx!
