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.

flashvars.folderPath = “assets/”;
var params = {};
params.scale = “noscale”;
params.salign = “tl”;
params.wmode = “transparent”;
var attributes = {};
swfobject.embedSWF(”../component-name.swf”, “component-name-div”, “600”, “300”, “9.0.0”, false, flashvars, params, attributes);

Hi,

Let’s say you have your index.html file in your root folder www.somesite.com.

In this folder www.somesite.com/filesample/ you have the following files:
xmls, images, swf.

The path to your assets must be relative to your html file:

<script type=“text/javascript”>
var flashvars = {};
flashvars.folderPath = “filesample/”;
var params = {};
params.scale = “noscale”;
params.salign = “tl”;
params.wmode = “transparent”;
var attributes = {};
swfobject.embedSWF(”filesample/component-name.swf”, “component-name-div”, “600”, “300”, “9.0.0”, false, flashvars, params, attributes);
</script>

Hi,

Have you tried to embed the swf in your html file using the dynamic method that is described on this page?

Hi, you asked me to give my web link to publish atleast two different components on my single HTML page, here it is( kashmaar.7p.com). In any case I need the correct code for this for my own knowledge.
I would highly appreciate your kindness.

Hi,

In your html file you have something like this:
@<td>The issue represents the tussle between ….</td>.

Let’s say that you want to publish two carousels in the above table cell.

First create two different folders in your website root folder:

carousel1 and carousel2.

In the carousel1 folder place the following files: XML, images.
Make sure you rename carousel.swf, settings.xml and images.xml to carousel1.swf, settings1.xml and images1.xml.

In the second folder place the same files and rename the xml files to carousel2.swf, settings2.xml and images2.xml.

Copy the swfobject.js file in your root folder and write the following lines in your html file in the <td></td> element that we specified above.

@<script type=“text/javascript” src=“swfobject.js”></script>
<script type=“text/javascript”>
var flashvars1 = {};
flashvars1.folderPath = “carousel1/”
flashvars1.settingsXML= “settings1.xml”;
var params1 = {};
params1.scale = “noscale”;
params1.salign = “tl”;
params1.wmode = “transparent”;
var attributes1 = {};
swfobject.embedSWF(“carousel1/carousel1.swf”, “CarouselDiv1”, “600”, “300”, “9.0.0”, false, flashvars1, params1, attributes1);

var flashvars2 = {};
flashvars2.folderPath = “carousel2/”
flashvars2.settingsXML= “settings2.xml”;
var params2 = {};
params2.scale = “noscale”;
params2.salign = “tl”;
params2.wmode = “transparent”;
var attributes2 = {};
swfobject.embedSWF(“carousel2/carousel2.swf”, “CarouselDiv1”, “300”, “200”, “9.0.0”, false, flashvars2, params2, attributes2);
</script>@

<div id="CarouselDiv1"></div>
<div id="CarouselDiv2"></div>

Hi, previously i asked you about publishing two different components on the same web page, i went through the tutorial(which is based on publishing same components), but unfortunately I am not clear. Please illustrate it with an example having two different components.
High Regards.

I would highly appreciate any assistance.

Hi,

Here you’ll find a tutorial that explains in detail how to publish the same component on the same page.
So basically the procedure for publishing two differents components on the same page is almost the same.
