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

I am wondering if its possible to embed the swf into the <body> without having to place the js inside the <head>, I am studying the possibility of using the carousel inside a cms platform, where I have restriction on placing code in the <head>.

thanks

Hello,

Yes, it is possible to put it in the body, but we suggest trying with the free version first.

Hello,

Could you be more specific? We checked your website and aside from the fact that the imageScroller is 600px width in the settings file and 625px when you embed it (causing some white area between the component and the other elements) it works just fine.

Please clear your browser’s cache and visit your site again.

FlashXML Support

Hello,

Put this in your CSS file:
@body
{
text-align:center;
}

#yourDockMenuDiv
{
margin:0 auto; padding:0;
}@

Without the “@”.

I’m using commercial license of Banner Rotator FX.

In the settings.xml, is it possible to specify a location for the images.xml in a DIFFERENT DOMAIN ????

With such setting, my HTML page stays blank, but works fine when i put images.xml everywhere in same domain (all my paths are absolutes).

FlashXML Support

Hi,

You need to have a crossdomain.xml file in the root folder of your second domain with this text written in it:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE cross-domain-policy SYSTEM "http://www.macromedia.com/xml/dtds/cross-domain-policy.dtd">
<cross-domain-policy>
<allow-access-from domain="*" />
<site-control permitted-cross-domain-policies="master-only" />
</cross-domain-policy>
