sound fx problem

hello!

I’m triying to use the sound FX action with a rollover button and set it to sound when click and it didn’t work. When I changed it to sound on mouse hover it worked, but what I want is to sound when click and don’t have any clue why it won’t work.

Please any help
Thanks in advance,

Marcus

I would check that the sound file is in a format your browser can
play. I just tried this with a tiny WAV file, and it worked very
nicely on click.

Hi Walter. Yes, im using a wav file. I’m using the carousel action together in a way that a click of a mouse on the carousel tab moves the slider while it sounds like a sliding door. Is the carousel action compatible with the sound fx?

It’s compatible in the way that the two libraries can live and work
together. But if you are registering more than one click handler on
one element, you have to do that carefully. Try this in the
Protaculous Action instead of the Sound FX Action:

document.observe('click',function(evt){
	var elm;
	if(elm = evt.findElement('.controls')){
		Sound.play('Resources/whoosh.wav', {replace:true});
	}
});

You need to set Protaculous’s Library picker to scriptaculous-packed,
and you also need to use the Upload Stuff Action or some other means
to get whoosh.wav into your Resources folder.

What this does is listen for a click on the document, then filters
that click to see if it was sent by one of the tabs in your Carousel
(they all have the .controls classname in their ancestry). If so, the
whoosh is played.

If you wanted it to play also when the previous/next buttons are
pushed, then modify the findElement function to read

findElement('.controls, .previous, .next')

and that will capture all of them. Get a WAV of the Enterprise bridge
turbo-lift doors, for extra geek cred!

Even simpler, use this much shorter code:

$$('.controls, .previous, .next').invoke('observe','click', function() 
{ Sound.play('Resources/whoosh.wav', {replace:true}); });

Put that in the top Function Body editor, set the Library picker to
scriptaculous-packed, and you’re done.

Hi Walter,
I’m sorry but I still need a help here. I tried, but I’m sure I’m doing something wrong…When I think I’ve learned more something new comes up and beats me… :slight_smile:

Here’s the link of the website I’m working on: http://www.sunshinedoorsspecialists.com/new/site/index.html

Please take a look. The first thing I did was to add the sound fx effect on each rollover button but it didn’t work and I suppose it was because it’s a rollover made from two different grouped image. I tried it in another object and it worked on the click of the mouse. After you sent me the instructions to use the Protaculous instead of the sound fx and the upload stuff I did it, following every instruction, pasting the code in the top Function Body editor and setting the Library picker to scriptaculous-packed, but it didn’t work. I realized that Protaculous is a page action, not an item action and don’t know where to put it on the page. I put over the button and didn’t work either.

Please take a look at the mockup up of this website let me know what I can do to make it work.
I really thank you in advance for all your help.

Best,
Marcus

I tried it and discovered that I could get the forward and back
buttons to work with the method I posted last night, but the tabs
didn’t want to play. So I switched that observer to the mousedown
event instead of the click, and it all works together.

Download the FWP file:

http://scripty.walterdavisstudio.com/noisy.zip

$$('.controls, .previous, .next').invoke('observe','mousedown',  
function(){
	Sound.play('Resources/door01.wav', {replace:true});
});

Yes, that’s the problem with Sound FX in general. You have to find
really tiny sounds to use, and I didn’t spend that much time hunting.

I don’t think you really should, Paramount is quite litigious. I’m
going to take it down soon so I don’t get given the Red Shirt

Dear Walter,

The carousel action is working perfectly, together with the Protaculous instead of the sound fx action even in IE, but curiously I have noticed some hiccups on the page with Firefox and a minor one in Safari.

This is the link. Please take look. It’s still a working in progress:
http://www.sunshinedoorsspecialists.com/new/site/index.html

This website is the one I’m using the carousel action as pages. On the carousel action I notice some delay on the carousel tab. In safari at first, It takes about 2 seconds to the carousel to move to the next panel after you click with the mouse. On the other hand in Firefox after you click on the tabs the URL changes sometimes to something like: http://www.sunshinedoorsspecialists.com/new/site/index.html#panel-2

Do you have any idea how could I adjust it?

Thanks in advance,

Marcus

I think it has to do with the enormous size of the page. All of those
fading slideshow images take time to load in, and until they do, the
page isn’t done loading so the setup event doesn’t fire.

Before I finish the last message I pressed send by mistake…sorry

Walter, I’ll try to lower the size of all images and the backgrounds also. I expected that this kind of page would be bigger than a normal one, but the idea is to load it faster too. Besides lower the size of the images do you have any suggestion to get the page smaller?

I appreciate your help!
