    I'm not sure if anyone has mentioned it but a zoom function would be great- an icon along side the print button where the user can zoom into the main image.

    I have the original protogallery .fla downloadable on flashkit and the document size is 800 x 500 I have tried to resize this so as to get rid of the unecessary whitespace but ever time I try it stuffs up the layout??

    hi pippin all i can say is that the positioning of the protogallery is extremeley buggy. have you tried using imageWeaver to create a gallery. Although it is a little more complex you have much greater controll over it. if you do try to use imageweaver, just bear in mind that there are one or two minor bugs around. I would try and help you but i only have a week till my final degree assesment , so if you can wait till after then, i can then help you.

    Sweet slide!

    I can preview it, but am having trouble using it. Can anyone lay down the "for idiots" basic setup of this? Just a real basic walkthrough of setting the badass thing up!

    madameerg if you're talking about imageWeaver then i'm in the middle of creating a microsite for it which will explain a lot. also install it via the mxp / extension manager, drag it from the components panel then follow the user interface panel. i will be updating it for three different user levels. beginner, intermediate and advanced. each will have their own interface and setup procedures for each. follow the threads below each contains background material. if you still need a guide, if you buy something off my amazon wishlist then i will help you one to one via messengers.

    Hi Bugged-

    I like your slideshow, but I cannot seem to download it anywhere. When I click a download link on your site I get a PHP file.

    I'm on a MAC running OSX. Can you tell me what I'm doing wrong?

    Thanks.

    depending on the browser you are using it will download a php file because the app doesn't know how to handle the incoming file. explorer is particularily bad at thi i find (i'm os x as well), all you have to do is rename the downloaded php file to something with a zip extension.

    ie

    download.php == archive.zip

    you should then be able to unpack hte file.

    Buggedcom, Thank you for your offer to help. I would be glad to purchase something off your wishlist for all your efforts, generosity and willingness to help idiots like me use this thing! Shoot me an email at madaneerg@hotmail to figure out how we can do this and what you want off that list.

    Thanks again.

    Thank you. It's funny, something must be different because I didn't even have to rename it today.

    Resizing component

    Hi Buggedcom

    I recently looked at the new version and it's getting better and better! Like the easy 'properties wizzard'!

    I thought I finally try to make a gallery with your component.


    Unfortunately I ran into some difficulties:

    I like to make the photo window on the right a lot bigger. I resized the whole component. But the thumbnail window on the left takes to much place in comparison of the photo window. So I tried to make the thumbnail window smaller and the photo window bigger. But things got a mess

    Is there a simple way to change size?

    - Perhaps different (size) lay outs can be implemented in your component. So in the setup (properties) one can choose of 1 colomn of thumbnails and a big photo window or 2 colomns and a somewhat smaller photo window, 3 colomns of thumbs etc.

    - I used your working example. When setting up the .mpx I couldn't configure the switch option (p1). Strange.

    Hope you can give me some feedback on resizing. Thanks!!

    Cheers!

    hi grubbel,

    glad you finally decided to hop onboard, sorry your having problems.

    resizing

    the currrent way to resize stuff is not so simple, for the 'image window', there is only one main thing that you have to resize, the image boundaries. bascially the image is squashed to the width and height of the boundaries mc, then if you wish to change the viewing area, you have to change the mask movie clip.

    for the thumbnails, it kinda depends on which scrolling direction you have choosen. For horizontal scrolling the images are fitted to the mask, so if the mask is smaller than the thumbs, the thumbs are squased to the mask height, where as scrolling vertically, it also depends on the number of scrollable levels you have choosen. the levels are squashed equally to the height of the mask and the thumbs are squashed to the layer. there is no current way of controlling the no of thumbs in one layer, so it all depends on the width of the thumbs mask, although you could adapt the thumbnail framing option to fit that purpose.

    the gallery switcher is a bit crappy to be honest and takes up to much code and i will be changing it, although it should still work. there are still a few bugs around and i am in the process of a major revamp, both the code, the setup and the user interface so it will keep getting better. Below are a few things that you can look forward to.

    // CODE
    - dramatically reduced code, removed 700 lines (so far)
    - speed optimized code
    - less getter setters, but better performing
    - sorted file parsing issues through reorganising the code

    // UI
    - "babysteps" setup, exact setup procedure and directions for creating the directory and seting up the text files
    - advanced setup procedure, 'no molycodling'
    - stored setups in sharedObject for quick setups
    - save-able setups in text files that can be reloaded
    - menu on same screen
    - new design and layout

    // FEATURES
    - xml data input option
    - asp data input from which i need help with the asp
    - combined the text files for better performance and ease of use
    - gd / imagemagick image library watermarking to force downloaded images
    - fixed printing bug
    - more state handlers for the option buttons
    - gallery switcher menu xml output, for various xml menus
    - file not found error detection (a bit buggy so might not include it)

    // MISC
    - two versions through installed, one with getter setters and debugger, and one without
    - the later is lighter on kb but might not be as customisabel as required

    any other suggestions or queries?

    Thanks!

    Hi Bugged,

    Thanks for your help! I already resized the image window with success.

    Any idea when the new version with all the new things will be about ready?
