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 put <div id=“ImageGalleryDiv”></div> in the body and it still isn’t working. Should I change the name for the div tag?

Hi!

I am trying to upload the scroller information to a wysiwyg site. It accepts the SWF to be uploaded into my components folder, but won’t allow anything else to be uploaded.
Help please,

Hi,
I am trying to get the image gallery on a website I am making. I am a beginner with dreamweaver and can’t get the gallery to show up when I test it in Safari. I think it has to do with the “product-DIV” tag. I named it ImageGallerDiv, but I am not sure that is correct. Please help. Thanks

<script type=“text/javascript” src=“swfobject.js”></script>
<script type=“text/javascript”>
var flashvars = {};
var params = {};
params.scale = “noscale”;
params.salign = “tl”;
params.wmode = “transparent”;
var attributes = {};
swfobject.embedSWF(“image gallery.swf”, “ImageGalleryDiv”, “800”, “650”, “9.0.0”, false, flashvars, params, attributes);
</script>

Hi,

Next in your body section create a div like this:
<div id=“ImageGalleryDiv”></div> if you didn’t create it already.

Hi, I am trying to input the 3d wall on my dissertation website and ive have followed the instructions exactly but it is still not working. I have noticed that in the downloaded file there is no swfobject.js file which looks like it is pretty important. Is there anywhere i can download this file or do i have to program it myself?

Thanks alot

Hi,

Please redownload the archive.

Hi,

Try to put all the assets of the component (XMLs, images) in the assets folder.
This should work.
