XML banner rotator V2 (blur)

XML banner rotator V2 (blur)


My latest file (XML accordion banner rotator with creative captions):


Banner rotator UPDATE:

- Added countdown


- you can now test some of the banner rotator features in preview:

- transitions types: blurx, blury, alpha, x, y
- hide types of buttons with entering 0 and then ok
- change dimensions of buttons

A simple modern, dynamic XML banner rotator. Rolling over i button will show extra text (description). You can choose between 5 different transitions:

- Blur X (blur along x axis)

- Blur Y (blur along y axis)

- Alpha (fading from one image to another)

- X (movement along x axis)

- Y (movement along y axis)

In preview I used Blur X.

Many parameters of banner can be changed via XML:

- transition type

- value of blur effect

- dimensions, visibility and position of first text container

- dimensions, visibility and position of second text container

- color of buttons

- color of roll over effect of buttons

- image size

- alpha value of buttons

- Font and size of text used on buttons

- time of each tween (seconds)

- time each slide is shown (milliseconds)

- visibility of text

- URL for each image

- margin between buttons

Formating of text is done via CSS, so you can for instance format only certain words in text (color, bold, size,...).

Add code above to the end of XML file

Change value of transitionType to the desired transition. You have five possibilities: alpha, blurx, blury, x and y. You can test all in preview

4. How to hide/unhide buttons of banner?

You have four different button types that are listed below: number buttons (numberButtonVisibility in XML), pause button (pauseButtonVisibility in XML), counter button (counterButtonVisibility), info button (infoButtonVisibility in XML). Change values of these variables from true to false if you wish to hide buttons or false to true to make them visible again.

5. How to change size of buttons of banner?

Change values of fields buttonW, buttonH in XML to desired size.

6. CSS, XML and text files.

When you upload swf (banner) to server, xml, css and text files should be in same directory as swf file. You have two text files, first one is used for upper text (title), second one is used for lower text (info or description). Note that when you add more images in XML you also need to add lines to both text files (it can be an empty line).
