This gallery was created in Flash. There are 3rd party apps that output Flash files, but i’m not sure you can get this same result.

Many thanks…

Is there anyway to achieve similar result with FW without using Flash?

Possible sure, but how good of a Javascript programer are you? As far as a simple, easy, native Freeway way to do this…i’m afraid not. You can certainly set the thumbnails, and get photos to auto display and fade between them with the built in actions, but the interface buttons would have to be programed.

Hi Chuckmuck…

I’m not a programmer at all! so you can imagine… :slight_smile:

I think I’ll have no other choice than building a simple gallery.

Will try doing some experiment with Freeway actions.

Thanks for your help.

The Carousel could get you somewhere near this, but it would not be
an exact match. Try this, and see if it does most of what you want.

http://scripty.walterdavisstudio.com/carousel

Follow the instructions carefully to design your page, and set the
auto-scroll time to 2 or 3. Make your forward-back buttons below the
carousel area, and don’t bother with the tabs.

Auto-scroll will automatically start flipping between photos when the
page loads. Any click on a control will cancel the auto-scroll
feature, so they will have to “drive manually” from that point on.

If you really need to be able to start the auto-scroll again, let me
know. There’s a way to do it, but it will be very tricky until I add
the ability to the Action. If there’s enough interest, I’ll put it on
the wish list.

Yes, that’s a great idea. I’ll have to post a demo of that!

Hi Walter,

Please forgive me to write you again asking some more help.

Have tried the Carousel action and it is in deed very close to what I’m looking for. Have a look at the link below…

http://www.thebookdesign.com/try/carousel.html

I have 2 more questions -

  1. There’s a black border that appears on the right and bottom of the main image area… how to get rid of that?

  2. I’d like to build one carousel gallery for each number on the left (i.e 1a, 1b, 1c… for thumbnail ‘1’ so as 2a, 2b, 2c… for thumbnail 2). If you kindly guide me how to do that.

Many thanks in advance.

It looks as though your panes aren’t all the same dimensions. You
need to make all of the panes exactly the same size and with exactly
the same border, and stacked directly above one another. Then group
them, then apply the Carousel action to the group. Then if you have
any controls that you need associated with it, you need to group the
controls with the (already grouped) Carousel.

  1. I’d like to build one carousel gallery for each number on the
    left (i.e 1a, 1b, 1c… for thumbnail ‘1’ so as 2a, 2b, 2c… for
    thumbnail 2). If you kindly guide me how to do that.

Hmmm. That’s going to get very very heavy, very fast. Remember, every
single option in every carousel will be loaded by the page before any
of this will start working. You might be better off making each
carousel a separate page, and making them all identical. So the site
would look like this:

carousel1.html
	#1a
	#1b
	#1c
	#1d
	#1e

carousel2.html
	#2a
	#2b
	...etc.

This will be a lot more manageable in Freeway, too.

But if you really really want to do this, then you would make a new
layer for each carousel to live on, and apply the Show Hide Target
Layer action to that layer. When you draw each Carousel, you would
take care to select that layer first, then draw your panes directly
on that layer (so they are children of the layer that you will show
and hide). Then use Rollover on the numbered boxes at the left of
your layout to trigger the “show” for each of the initially hidden
layers.

It’s going to get mighty confusing in Freeway, not to mention heavy
for the users, but yes, it could all be done in one page in this way.

You are a STAR.

I take your advice, that’s more logical way to build a gallery.

Many thanks for such prompt help. Much appreciate.

Walter,
You may have my address confused with one of your many other fans, I’m
not sure.
On the other hand, anything you send this way is a learning experience
for me on some level…
So thanks, send whatever you feel like, whenever you feel like it.
