How to load a product with a different settings.xml file

How SWF and XMLs interact


The product's SWF file loads by default the settings.xml file which contains all the parameters of the component. You can rename this file but you have to specify the new name using the following code:

var flashvars = {};
flashvars.settingsXML = "your_name.xml";

like in this example for the 3D Banner FX:

<div id="Div3DBannerFX"></div>
<script type="text/javascript" src="swfobject.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
 var flashvars = {};
 flashvars.settingsXML = "your_name.xml";
 var params = {};
 params.base = "";
 params.scale = "noscale";
 params.salign = "tl";
 params.wmode = "transparent";
 params.allowFullScreen = "true";
 params.allowScriptAccess = "always";
 swfobject.embedSWF("3DBannerFX.swf", "Div3DBannerFX", "600", "374", "9.0.0", false, flashvars, params);


The assets (images, videos, text etc.) displayed by the product are specified in the images.xml (or menu.xml, videos.xml, big.xmlmedia.xml for other products). You can also rename this file but you have to specify in the settings.xml file through assets element what's the new name, like this example:

assets value="your_name_images.xml"

The Banner Rotator FX, Dock Menu FX and 3D Carousel Menu AS2 FX has imagesXML instead of assets element in the settings.xml file. The Video Player FX has media_url.

Is it not possible to use a transitions.xml file generated from here:

...for use with Banner Rotator? I don’t see any documentation for setting parameters with this product in order to do this.

Best Regards,

Hi.I’m using Joomla 2.15.14 and Banner Rotator FX on the front page.Thank you for this great product!I’m really impressed by the power and utility of this component.I have a three languages site, my images are the same for all languages, but of course the text translated changes. I would like to show the corresponding texte depending on the active language,I’ve searched everywhere for someone who had a similar problem like myself, but with no success If I understand I should create three files for example, and images.en and three different settings files and introduce a new code somewhere? Please, I am new to xml and swf and dont have full understanding what to do make this work!
Thanks to all for the attention.Any advice would be very welcome, thanks.

Hi. You have to create different settings and images file for each language. And on each page, on the embed code set the correct settings file to load.
