How to specify the correct path in the embedding code of the SWFs

 

Generally, you must know that the path of the assets the SWF uses (the path of the images or videos specified in the XML file and the path of the XML files themselves) must be relative to the path of the HTML file which embeds the SWF file (and not relative to the SWF file - a common confusion).

If the folder path of the HTML differs from the product’s folder path (the folder in which the XML files and images or videos are located) then you must specify that path as value for the base attribute.

This is an example for 3D Banner FX (replace the product's name if you're using a different one):

- the index.html file is located at this address on your domain: http://www.yourdomain.com/index.html

- the swfobject.js file is located at this address: http://www.yourdomain.com/Banner/swfobject.js

- the product's files (XMLs, assets and images) are located in the Banner folder: http://www.yourdomain.com/Banner/

- the 3DBannerFX.swf file is located in the product's folder: http://www.yourdomain.com/Banner/3DBannerFX.swf

This is the embedding code you have to use:

<div id="Div3DBannerFX"></div>
<script type="text/javascript" src="Banner/swfobject.js"></script> //specify the folder's name here
<script type="text/javascript">
 var flashvars = {};
 var params = {};
 params.base = "Banner/"; //specify the folder's name here
 params.scale = "noscale";
 params.salign = "tl";
 params.wmode = "transparent";
 params.allowFullScreen = "true";
 params.allowScriptAccess = "always";
 swfobject.embedSWF("Banner/3DBannerFX.swf", "Div3DBannerFX", "600", "374", "9.0.0", false, flashvars, params); //specify the folder's name here
</script>

You can also use absolute paths like in this example:

params.base = "http://www.yourdomain.com/Banner/";

In case you used a different folder name don't forget to replace in all locations the Banner name with the name of your folder.

Note: there are three different locations in the embedding code where you have to specify the product's folder name so make sure you update all of them.

I am currently using a Go Daddy account wherein i don’t have a lot of freedom. I’ve been working on a way to use this scrolling Flash as a means to show my photography.. I am useless when it comes to web developing and I was wondering if there is any way to use this flash without embedding it in the body. Go daddy has an option to upload a flash, but it will not work in that manner. I apologize that i’m completely oblivious to my options and any guidance will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Cody

Hi.

Unfortunately this is not possible because our components use more files, not only a SWF file. That’s why you have to specify the folderPath (where the component’s files are located) in the embedding code and it’s not enough to specify just the path to SWF.

Hi,

Try to use the following code for embed:

<script type="text/javascript" src="dock-gallery/swfobject.js"></script>
 <script type="text/javascript">
 var flashvars = {};
 flashvars.folderPath = "dock-gallery/";
 var params = {};
 params.scale = "noscale";
 params.salign = "tl";
 params.wmode = "transparent";
 params.allowfullscreen = "true";
 var attributes = {};
 swfobject.embedSWF("dock-gallery/DockGalleryFX.swf", "DockGalleryFXDiv", "1000", "750", "9.0.0", false, flashvars, params, attributes);
 </script>

And add <div id=“DockGalleryFXDiv”></div> in the body section of your HTML page, where you want the Flash to show up.
