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.

Hello,
I bought your Banner-rotator component.
It works very nice but I’ve a problem with character encoding. All the letter with the accent ( examlpe: é/à/è ) are not visible on the text layer.
Do you know why? If you have a solution to this problem , please write me .

Thank you for collaboration,

Mario

Hi,

Yes, it is possible. You need to edit the XML file and between the CDATA tags where the <a href> attribute is write the path to the SWF file like this:

<photo image="images/09.jpg" colorboxImage="images/09.jpg" colorboxInfo="Item 09" colorboxClass="image" url="http://www.flashxml.net" target="_blank">
 <![CDATA[<head>You can have <a href='images/filename.swf'>links</a> in the text</head>]]></photo>

Hi,

I’m using the Dock Gallery for a page in my website and I cannot get it to show up on my page. I’m thinking it’s a path issue, but I’m not exactly sure where I should look to fix it. The files are all located in a folder called ‘lifedrawing’ and I thought I changed all the file paths to that folder, but no gallery ever shows up. If you could point me to a solution I would greatly appreciate it! Thank you.

Hi,

I checked your website and I found the problem. Our script that you have to insert in your HTML file is incomplete. You deleted a paragraph, above folderPath= you have to insert this code:

var flashvars = {};
