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.

Hi,

In the embedding code try to set the absolute path to the SWF file.

I put the code <div id=“BannerRotatorFXDiv”></div> in the htmpl block.. I’ll leave it there until I hear back from you

“Now you have to write <div id=“BannerRotatorFXDiv”></div> where you want the Flash to show up in your HTML body”

I did have that in what Dolphin calls an “html block” but it didn’t work,,, seem with Dolphin you have to do s “sys_injection” ,,, I have to do more research on how that is accomplished

FlashXML Support

Hi,

We don’t have too much knowledge about how to integrate our components in Dolphin sites, but I suggest you to add <div id=“BannerRotatorFXDiv”></div> directly in the the source code of your html block. Also send us the link to the webpage where only our logo is displayed.

FlashXML Support

Hi,

You are missing this line: <script type=“text/javascript” src=”/portals/7/skins/eaiskin/js/swfobject.js”></script> from your embedding code that is written between <head> tags.
