I have this page in which i want to show 4 different flash picturegalleries. When I click on GALLERY A I want to show GALLERY etc.

Normally you can do this with a link to the swf file and show it in an iframe.

Unfortenately this flash slideshow you can't just link to but you have to embed it with code like this:

<embed src="http://www.schepwelding.nl/banner/schepwelding.swf?fs_path=http://www.schepwelding.nl/banner/" quality="high" width="800" height="240" align="middle" allowscriptaccess="sameDomain" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer"></embed>

Now I can make 4 different html boxes and make them invisible and when On Click make them visible.

But I hope it can be done with a cleaner solution.

So is there a way that I can click on a link and show the flash file (like above) in an iframe or html box.

Something like: OnClick the html code in htmlbox 1 is the above code.

This must be possible using PHP. At the moment I'm working on a similar thing (showing different locations on a Google map). If I found a solution I let you know ASAP.

Very simple also using HTML:

1- draw a generic IFRAME object, press Ok and in its HTML content write the following code:

<div id="mydiv" style="width:$WIDTHpx;height:$HEIGHTpx;"></div>

2- Resize the generic object, now we are using a generic object in order to customize some HTML code on the fly
3- create a javascript section into your page and when an event occurs call a function like this

document.getElementById("mydiv").innerHTML="<embed src=\"http://www.schepwelding.nl/banner/schepwelding.swf?fs_path=http://www.schepwelding.nl/banner/\" quality=\"high\" width=\"$WIDTH\" height=\"$HEIGHT\" align=\"middle\" allowscriptaccess=\"sameDomain\" type=\"application/x-shockwave-flash\" pluginspage=\"http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer\"></embed>";

in this way you'll be able to insert any HTML code into any HTML element like a DIV

Very simple for you

This kind of thing,and there have been others, is where you need a special place/forum for like "Things you may want to try in DWHE" Or "Things you never knew you could do with DWHE"

Someone may never think they want it or need it,or that it even exists, but when they see it and how to do it all in one spot they may make use of it.

This is not really a tutorial as much as a mostly unknown feature of DWHE

I followed your instructions.

I created a hotspot and onclick I added a javacall with

document.getElementById("mydiv").innerHTML="<embed src=\"http://www.schepwelding.nl/banner/schepwelding.swf?fs_path=http://www.schepwelding.nl/banner/\" quality=\"high\" width=\"$WIDTH\" height=\"$HEIGHT\" align=\"middle\" allowscriptaccess=\"sameDomain\" type=\"application/x-shockwave-flash\" pluginspage=\"http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer\"></embed>";

Unfortenately it doesn't work. When I view the page there is an error:

\";returnfalse;">

I hope it's something small...

Hmm maybe error isn't the right word.
On the place of the hotspot I see the above text and when I click the hotspot nothing happens.

Hi,

Dav,

I just spent a couple of hours trying to understand it as well and failed with same error. I think you are assuming we know more than (I) do. I created the iframe, deleted the HTML content and put your <div> code in. Then put text box in with an event "onclick" and put javacall in by copying your code into the bottom line and adding. Id hoped to play a swf file on demand so the main page loads faste.

Cheers

Andy

Everywhere there is a " it has been replaced by /"

That can't be good, can it?

There is a syntax error, please send me the code for the SWF objects and I'll upload a sample to my site showing how to fix the problem ;-)

This is the code I use in a html box to show the banner:

<embed src="http://www.schepwelding.nl/banner/schepwelding.swf?fs_path=http://www.schepwelding.nl/banner/" quality="high" width="800" height="240" align="middle" allowscriptaccess="sameDomain" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer"></embed>

And here is my PHP solution:

In your page (in this example I named it photos.php) make a HTML box with the following code:

<?PHP

switch($_GET[gallery]) {

case 1:
print "Her comes your code for Gallery 1";

break;

case 2:
print "Her comes your code for Gallery 2";

break;

case 3:
print "Her comes your code for Gallery 3";

break;

default:
print "Here your code when none of the cases are true";

break;

}

?>

On that same page you can make buttons or text-links with the links:

photos.php?gallery=1
photos.php?gallery=2
photos.php?gallery=3

That's it.

When you use a " character you have to escape it with a backslash like you also do in Javascript, like this \".
Remind that PHP is a serverside script so you have to test it remote online or local when you have your own server up and running.

Oke Thanks for the tutorial.

Got it working but it's completely different from what you wrote before?

The fact that you have to put the code in the header isn't as handy as putting the code in the div.
A div you can copy to another page and the make some adjustments. Now you have to go to the header section, copy the code and put it in the header section of the other page.

But hey, it's working!

Have you tried using "Batch Manager" to accomplish this?

I'm strictly a cut and paste guy when it comes to coding :)
