Installation instructions for:

Download the slide-product-viewer.zip package, extract it and copy all the resulted files and folders in the same location as the web page in which you want the product to be displayed. As an alternative, you can copy all the resulted files and folders in a different folder.

From the downloaded package, the SWF file represents the actual product while the other files (XMLs, images) are the assets that the SWF file uses. A short explanation how SWFs and XMLs interacts can be found here.

Open the HTML file with a text editor (like Notepad or TextEdit) and add the following code where you want the product to be displayed:

<div id="DivSlideProductViewerFX"></div>
<script type="text/javascript" src="swfobject.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
 var flashvars = {};
 var params = {};
 params.base = "";
 params.scale = "noscale";
 params.salign = "tl";
 params.wmode = "transparent";
 params.allowFullScreen = "true";
 params.allowScriptAccess = "always";
 swfobject.embedSWF("SlideProductViewerFX.swf", "DivSlideProductViewerFX", "363", "600", "9.0.0", false, flashvars, params);
</script>

Don't forget to replace the 363 and 600 from the swfobject.embedSWF() function above with your own width and height that you specified in the settings.xml file through componentWidth and componentHeight elements. Also, don't forget to update the paths as specified in this FAQ article if you copied the product's files in a different folder.

CUSTOMIZATION

You can customize the Slide Product Viewer FX using the Live Demo above and then download the slide-product-viewer.zip package with the changes you've made or you can edit the settings.xml file with a text editor.

To use your own images, edit the images.xml file with a text editor and define in each row the image path, the url to go to when clicking the image, the target(_self for the same browser window or _blank for a new browser window) and the text between CDATA tags.

Here's an example:

<photo image="images/101.png" url="http://www.flashxml.net" target="_blank"><![CDATA[<head>Hello</head><body>world</body><additional>again</additional>]]></photo>

You can have as many images as you like. To add a new image, add a new row in the XML file.

You can use photo albums from picasa, flickr, tumblr, photobucket, deviantart or mobypicture by adding the link to the web feed of your album to the assets element in the settings.xml file.

Please visit our FAQ page for answers to common questions.

If you want to get rid of the flashxml.net label from the top-left corner visible in the free version you have to purchase the product and use the paid version instead.

YYou can see an example on how to add a product in your Wordpress article/page here and how to add it in your theme or as a widget here.

Make sure your Wordpress version is greater than 2.8 and your hosting provider is using PHP5.

 

1. There are two files to download:

    a. WordPress Plugin that you have to install and activate

    b. Free package

2. Create a new folder inside your wp-content folder called flashxml, inside this folder create a new one called slide-product-viewer-fx and copy the content of the free package there

3. If you copied the free package to a location different than the one above, go to Slide Product Viewer FX from the Settings tab in your WordPress Dashboard and update the path accordingly

4. Add [slide-product-viewer-fx][/slide-product-viewer-fx] where you want the Flash to show up in your post/page

5. If you want to make the Slide Product Viewer FX part of your theme, edit the template files and add <?php fxslideproductviewer_echo_embed_code(); ?> where you want it to show up

6. Customize your Slide Product Viewer FX using the Live Demo from the top of this page. Download the ZIP file and use the included settings.xml file to overwrite wp-content/flashxml/slide-product-viewer-fx/settings.xml

7. To use your own images, upload them to wp-content/flashxml/slide-product-viewer-fx/images and update the wp-content/flashxml/slide-product-viewer-fx/images.xml file accordingly

 

Additional settings file

To embed the Slide Product Viewer FX more than once, you will need another settings file and (probably) another set of images. Let's assume your new file is called settings2.xml. Add [slide-product-viewer-fx settings="settings2.xml"][/slide-product-viewer-fx] where you want the Flash to show up in your post/page. If you made the Flash part of your theme, add the file name as the first argument of the fxslideproductviewer_echo_embed_code() function call (for example <?php fxslideproductviewer_echo_embed_code("settings2.xml"); ?>).

 

Add as widget

To add the Slide Product Viewer FX as a widget, go to Widgets from the Appearance tab in your WordPress Dashboard, then drag and drop the Slide Product Viewer FX from Available Widgets to the widget area you want. You can specify a different settings.xml file and an alternative content for users without Adobe Flash Player from the widget's settings.

 

No Flash support text

To support visitors without Adobe Flash Player, you can provide alternative content by adding the text between [slide-product-viewer-fx] and [/slide-product-viewer-fx]. If you made the Flash part of your theme, add the text as the second argument of the fxslideproductviewer_echo_embed_code() function call (for example <?php fxslideproductviewer_echo_embed_code("", "Alternative content"); ?>).

 

Change WMODE

By default, the WMODE value is transparent but you can change it to window from the Slide Product Viewer FX in the Settings tab in your WordPress Dashboard. For widgets, this can be done from the widget's settings. If you want to have a different WMODE value in a specific place, it can be done like this: [slide-product-viewer-fx wmode="window"][/slide-product-viewer-fx]. If you're using the PHP function, here's an example on: <?php fxslideproductviewer_echo_embed_code("", "", 0, 0, "window"); ?>.

 

If you have PHP4

To make it work with PHP4, add [slide-product-viewer-fx width="400" height="300"][/slide-product-viewer-fx] where you want the Flash to show up in your post/page. If you made the Flash part of your theme, add the width and height as the third and fourth argument of the fxslideproductviewer_echo_embed_code() function call. Don't forget to provide your own width and height values, since 400 and 300 are just examples.

 

Getting rid of the FlashXML.net label

To remove the FlashXML.net label from the top-left corner you'll need to buy the paid package. Once you'll do that, simply use the SWF file from the paid package to overwrite the SWF file from the wp-content/flashxml/slide-product-viewer-fx/ folder.

1. Download the free package. You need to host all the included files from the package on your own domain because Facebook doesn't allow file hosting.

2. Log in to your Facebook account.

3. Search for the Static HTML: iframe tabs application and select it.

4. Click on Add Static HTML to a page button and you'll be prompted for the page where you want the app to be added.

5. Once added you'll see on the left side menu of your page a new tab with a star icon called Welcome. Click on it to edit it.

6. Add the following HTML embedding code in the text field:

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/swfobject/2.2/swfobject.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
var flashvars = {};
flashvars.folderPath = "http://www.yourdomain.com/product_folder/";
var params = {};
params.scale = "noscale";
params.salign = "tl";
params.wmode = "transparent";
params.allowScriptAccess = "always";
params.allowFullScreen = "true";
var attributes = {};
swfobject.embedSWF("http://www.yourdomain.com/product_folder/ProductName.swf", "DivFlashComponent", "600", "400", "9.0.0", false, flashvars, params, attributes);
</script>
<div id="DivFlashComponent"></div>

Don't forget to use your own URL for the product's location, name, width and height.

7. Click preview to see how it looks or save changes. The product is now added to the Welcome tab of your page.

8. Optional: To change the tab's name, called by default Welcome, edit your page, go to the Apps tab and click Edit Settings option next to the Static HTML: iframe tabs application to enter the name you want.

9. Optional: To make the tab your default landing tab (first thing your visitors see on your page) edit your page and go to the Manage Permissions tab and change the Default Landing Tab. Note that this option doesn't work with the new Timeline for pages.

Getting rid of the FlashXML.net label

To remove the FlashXML.net label from the top-left corner you'll need to buy the paid package. Once you do that, simply use the SWF file from the paid package to overwrite the SWF file from the location where you hosted all the files from the free package.

The module is used for adding the product in one or more pages in a given position (e.g. top, bottom, sidebar) while the plugin is used for adding the product inside a specific article.

You can see an example on how to install a module in your Joomla 1.5 website here, how to install a plugin in your Joomla 1.5 website here, how to install a module in your Joomla 1.6 website here and how to install a plugin in your Joomla 1.6 website here.

Make sure your Joomla version is at least 1.5 and your hosting provider is using PHP5.

 

Joomla Module Instructions:

1. There are two files to download (both under GPL License):

    a. Joomla Module (version 1.5 or version 1.6, 1.7 & 2.5 or version 3.x) that you have to install and enable

    b. Free package

2. Create a new folder inside your Joomla folder called flashxml, inside this folder create a new one called slideproductviewerfx and copy the content of the free package there

3. If you copied the free package to a location different than the one above, update the Path from module's parameters accordingly

4. Customize your Slide Product Viewer FX using the Live Demo from the top of this page. Download the ZIP file and use the included settings.xml file to overwrite flashxml/slideproductviewerfx/settings.xml

Note that the Joomla Module can only be used once in your website.

 

Joomla Plugin Instructions:

1. There are two files to download (both under GPL License):

    a. Joomla Plugin (version 1.5 or version 1.6, 1.7 & 2.5 or version 3.x) that you have to install and enable

    b. Free package

2. Create a new folder inside your Joomla folder called flashxml, inside this folder create a new one called slideproductviewerfx and copy the content of the free package there

3. If you copied the free package to a location different from the one above, update the Path from plugin's parameters accordingly

4. Add {slideproductviewerfx}{/slideproductviewerfx} where you want the Flash to show up in your article

5. Customize your Slide Product Viewer FX using the Live Demo from the top of this page. Download the ZIP file and use the included settings.xml file to overwrite flashxml/slideproductviewerfx/settings.xml

6. The default name for the settings file is settings.xml, but if you want to use another file (for example settings2.xml), specify the name like this: {slideproductviewerfx settings=settings2.xml}{/slideproductviewerfx} where you want the component to show up in your article

7. In some cases the width and height will not be read from the settings.xml file but you can specify them like this: {slideproductviewerfx width=400 height=300}{/slideproductviewerfx}. Don't forget to provide your own width and height values, since 400 and 300 are just examples.

 

No Flash support text

To support visitors without Adobe Flash Player, you can provide alternative content by adding the text between {slideproductviewerfx} and {/slideproductviewerfx}.

 

Changing WMODE

By default, the WMODE value is transparent but you can change it to window from the module/plugin's parameters. If you want to have a different WMODE value in a specific article, it can be done like this: {slideproductviewerfx wmode=window}{/slideproductviewerfx}.

 

Getting rid of the FlashXML.net label
To remove the FlashXML.net label from the top-left corner you'll need to buy the paid package.
Once you will do that, simply use the SWF file from the paid package to overwrite the SWF file from the flashxml/slideproductviewerfx/ folder.

The Slide Product Viewer FX component is available for Flash CS4, CS5, CS5.5 and requires Flash Player 10 or later. To use this product in Flash you need the MXP file that is available only in the paid package.

You can see an example of how to install a component in Flash Professional here.

In this video you will see:
- how to create an instance of the component on the stage: from the Components panel (Ctrl+F7) drag & drop the component on the stage
- how to give a name to an instance for further use in ActionScript: click on the component instance on the stage and from the Properties panel (Ctrl+F3) enter a name in the text input
- how to access the properties of the component (read or modify) during different moments of your Flash application

Any property of the component could be accessed that way. The names of the properties are identical with the ones from the settings.xml file. The properties of the component can be any of these three types: Number, String, Boolean. We assume it’s intuitive of which type each property is.

Warning! Setting the parameters of the component in the Component Inspector window (Shift+F7) and in the same time having a settings.xml file populated with different values for each property, the properties from the settings.xml file will have priority (meaning that a parameter set in the Component Inspector will be ignored if that parameter is also defined in the XML file).

For now, this component does not dispatch events, but stay tuned for an update.

I have about 30 slides to done as a slideshow and they are grouped.

I need a top/bottom area which can display quick links (buttons/images) to the beginning of each section

I need first couple pages to have a different layout and rest to have a set of layout

Is it possible to do these?

FlashXML Support

Hi,

What you would require of this component is not possible. Every image in the images.xml gets the same style, with the same background defined in the settings.xml or via de liveDemo. The textboxes have the same position for all images, you could however change the style of the text from the CSS in the assets folder, and you can add links to the images.xml in the CDATA tags, using the HTML a href tag.

Hello,

is it possible to install it on the shopsoftware “Gambio” ?
This is a german shop software by xt-commerce.

Thanks

FlashXML Support

Hi,

We don’t have any direct plugins to integrate this with the CMS, Gambio. You will have to embed the component using the instructions for the general websites. Just add this in the index.PHP file of your theme and make sure you add the correct filepath to the component’s files. If you want to learn more about how to set the folder path to the component’s folder, in our FAQ

Hi,
I downloaded your Slide Product Viewer FX and I have been trying to adjust the settings. Is there any documentation that describes each one of the settings and how to change all the properties of the component?
Thank you very much for your help,
Ana C. Uribe

FlashXML Support

Hi,

Thank you for showing interest in our products. Sorry, but we do not have such a documentation. However, we provide a much easier way of customizing the component by using the Live Demo above, which offers also the possibility to see the changes instantly and to watch the behaviour of each individual functionality. Make the necessary changes from there and then generate the new settings and paste them to overwrite the settings that you got with the package.

is there any easy way to move the previuos and next buttoms around?

FlashXML Support

Hi,

Edit settings.xml and check for the value set for controls. Edit the skin.xml file that is set for the product to load.

The following code represents a setting to arrow position, path to the arrow, padding horizontally, padding vertically, spacing between the arrows.

<group snapToCell="true" gridPosition="BR" cellPosition="BR" orientation="horizontal" paddingV="-5" paddingH="-10" spacing="40">
 <button out="assets/skins/skin/left.png" over="assets/skins/skin/leftOver.png"  down="assets/skins/skin/left.png" action="prev" animate="false" />
 <button out="assets/skins/skin/right.png" over="assets/skins/skin/rightOver.png"  down="assets/skins/skin/right.png" action="next" animate="false" />
 </group>

I want to fill the entire brower with the slide product viewer sequence and remove the scroll bar on the left (at least in Internet Explorer). Any suggestion on what to add to your html code to do that ? I have been able to resize to specific 1024 × 768 size in the settings.xml which helps some, but not to fit to 100% height and width or remove the scroll bar.

FlashXML Support

Hi,

If you want to use the Slide Product Viewer in fullscreen mode you need to make the following changes:
1. Open settings.xml and add the following lines between <General_Properties> and * </General_Properties>*.

<stretchHeight value="true"/>
<stretchWidth value="true"/>

2. After the embedding code (in your HTML page) you need to define the following style for the component’s div:
<style type="text/css">
html, body , #DivSlideProductViewerFX { margin: 0; padding: 0; width: 100%; height: 100%; }
#DivSlideProductViewerFX { float: left; }
</style>

3. If you do not want to use the controls, you can set a null value for the <controls> attribute, in settings.xml.
