[Pro] connecting links between Hype and Freeway

Hello. I start a new thread because the question is other.

How can you connect Hype and Freeway through their links/buttons? For example, I make an animation in Hype with three buttons appearing, but cant use these buttons in FW, because the animation is blocked. Isn’t it?

Another: I make an animation to write the title of the page in Hype, and when it finish, I want other elements to appear, and then can use the website.

I dont know if I made understood myself.

What I mean is that I have the sense of Hype is blocked from fW, so you make the animation, and put it on a page in FW, but cant make more with it…

Essentially Freeway sees the Hype object as an isolated element on the page. If you know what you are doing (and are prepared for a bit of a play) then you can have the page and the animation communicate via a script so, for example, Freeway items appear at certain times in your Hype animation.
Paul Dunning has done a great job in this area and his explorations in driving Freeway’s target items is well worth a look;

The animation is self-contained, Any buttons you create within Hype will work on the Hype animation no matter where you place it in your Freeway page. I am not sure about creating a split animation in two files, with one part handling the buttons and the other receiving messages from those buttons. That would be a good question for the Hype developers.

Think of Hype as a way to make moving pictures that play within a box. You can do anything you want inside that box, and the box can be any dimensions (up to the size of the page you place it in). Freeway makes the page on which you locate this box.

Thanks both of you. Ill take a look at the link.

Ill explain in sequence what I want my page do (i always think I cant make myself well understood in english…):

  • the title comes in (hype animation)
  • 2 pictures come in (the same hype animation)
  • buttons appear (buttons are in the freeway page)
  • the website works

steps 1 and 2 take about 5 seconds, and then these elements are maintained in their place for all the time you are visiting the website.

Thanks again.

Target Chains

Hello again. I vad a look. Im sorry but I dont understand what is this chains for. I have followed the steps, and at last, in Freeway, I put target Aqua and value 1, but dont know what is this color and number for…? I applied this to the button up-right, just to give it an action to do, like if it would be a button, like gotoURL, or mailto… but this kind of actions you cant write them here.

Please can you explain how should I do with these chains to make them work?

My file in in http://www.i-tek.es/enblanco.html

Thanks again

I have uploaded a sample Freeway document showing how output from these two applications can communicate. It includes both the Freeway and Hype documents with some explanatory text.

Thanks for the example. Can you make that the button in hype document navigate to another page in the site?

In Hype you can make links to anywhere - to a page in your site or to any other site. Just make sure that you use absolute paths ie

http://www.mysite.com/mypage.html

(Ignore the < > angle brackets if viewing on the web forum.)

And of course you will need to know the FW page name before you finish adding the links to the Hype animation.
