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.

I use CustomizableGridGalleryFX and need several pages displaying different pictures on each page. I followed your instructions putting flashvars.settingsXML= “settings1.xml”; flashvars.settingsXML= “settings2.xml”; in the html-page and made a new folder ImageGridFX2 with new settings (thumbs2.xml) but only the thumbs of the first page are shown.
ImageGridFX2 is also set in the div of the html-file. No idea any more what I can do. Could you help, please?
