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’m tring to use banner rotator on a Dolphin?boonex site, in a html block. The only thing that displys is your logo.

I’ve used absolute paths for flashvars, the location of BannerRotatorFX.swf and swfobject.js

any ideas of why I just see whitespace and your logo?

FlashXML Support

Hi,

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

<script type=“text/javascript” src=“js/swfobject.js”></script>
<script type=“text/javascript”>
var flashvars = {};
flashvars.folderPath = “mycomponent/”;
var params = {};
params.scale = “noscale”;
params.salign = “tl”;
params.wmode = “transparent”;
var attributes = {};
swfobject.embedSWF(“mycomponent/ComponentNameFX.swf”, “ComponentNameDiv”, “600”, “300”, “9.0.0”, false, flashvars, params, attributes);
</script>

what is componentNameDiv ? what must to change it with that name?

FlashXML Support

Hi,

Instead of ComponentName you need to write the actual name of the component that you are trying to embed into your website. If you are using Banner Rotator FX for example, you will write BannerRotatorFXDiv.

Can I use any of these flash components in an OfficeLive website? How do I upload all of the proper files and direct the correct path to them? Example: the swf file works locally but I get no images when uploaded to OfficeLive.

Hi,

Try to set the absolute path in flashvars for the folderPath , also for loading the VideoPlayerFX.swf.
