Hi Smooth

 

Thanks I will try this. Unfortunately not untill a couple of days as I am working as a part timer at a hotel, doing a 22.30-08.00 shift these days.

Hi

I can't get it to work. Could anyone take me through the process step by step??

I want to make a link to a pdf file from the skin and a full screen panorama from both the skin and the panorama in my viewer.

I think that I am probably placing the folder I called fscommand at the wrong place. I have placed the folder in the same folder where I have published my tour. C:\Documents and Settings\Morten Andersen\Skrivebord\Wide Eyes\Kunder\Muhldorff\Allehelgensgade 23\fscommand\

I don't quite know what "root directory" is. can anyone specify it for me?? I really hope so as I have a sales meeting tomorrow and it would be great to be able to show them this feature.

Best regards

Morten,

The "Root Directory" is the base of the tree. Not in a folder on a CD, Just straight on. To make it in your Harddrive for testing purposes make a folder and call it "CD" then within that folder place everything that will go on the CD. fscommand folder goes here along with your .html file and Tourweaver files and folders.

When you burn to a CD you burn everything from within the "CD" folder but NOT the "CD" folder itself. (The "CD" folder is acting as the "Root Directory")

Clear as mud?

Regards, Smooth

Hi Smooth

Damn I am embarassed to write once more, but I am still doing something wrong.

I want to make a link to a full screen pano from within the scene, so I have added a url hotspot in my pano, and in "actions" I have choosen "URL". I have then browsed my folders to find the file "C:\Documents and Settings\Morten Andersen\Skrivebord\WideEyes\Kunder\Muhldorff\CD\fscommand\BADqtvr.html

 

I have then published the tour, burned it to a disc with the 2 directories as you said. 1 is called fscommand where the QTVR files are, and 1 is called allehelgensgade 23 where the tour it self is.

Any suggestions on what I might be doing wrong????

Best regards

The address in your link must be fscommand/BADqtvr.html

It cannot contain the C:\Documents and Settings\Morten Andersen\Skrivebord\WideEyes\Kunder\Muhldorff\ Because this will not be relevant to the CD. As the CD itself is the "Root Directory" no paths below this can be shown.

You might be better off installing a "Virtual CD" for your testing. Or at least write to a CDRW until you have it down.

If possible please post a screen shot of the CD folder contents.

Asking is learning I have no problem with that!

Regards, Smooth

Hi there

Just interested in this as I haven't yet found out myself. Is there anyway to have a link to a video file (avi / qt or other).  Hope something works !

Many thanks all.

I finally figured it out;  

Its a lot easier than you would think here is a couple of tours Im working on for our local Fire Dept, the tours arent complete, still waiting for some text and to shoot some more detail stills for the tours.
And the second is another thats still in production.


SFFR

The Body Garage


To open a full screen window from Tourweaver you first need to add a URL linked hot spot to your tour, this can be in a scene or on your skin as well,
    

In the Href  you need to enter the URL in this format;

    javascript:fullwin('http://www.your_site.com.html')
this will call a javescript function called fullwin.

After you complete your tour you need to publish it locally and than open the HTML file with the Tourweaver tour in it, in your favorite text editor.
 
Than add the fullwin script in the head of the file.

  

Here's the fullwin script to add;

<script>

<!--

 

function fullwin(targeturl){

window.open(targeturl,"","fullscreen,scrollbars")

}

//--></script>

than save your file.
Thats it.
Hope I explained this good enough,


Take care and Merry Christmas
Mike (gidg)

Good one Mike,

As I don't have Tourweaver I wasn't sure how the javascript was implemented.

But now that you have shown the way I thought I would share some other parameters that people might find useful.

//Into <head> of document//

<script>

<!--

 

function fullwin(targeturl){
window.open(targeturl,"","fullscreen=no,width=800,height=600,menubar=yes,location=yes,directories=yes,toolbar=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,resizable=yes")

}

//--></script>

</head>

Using the same method as Mike showed above you can enter extra commands. Simply change the "no" or "yes" on each parameter to get the desired result. Change the width and height to make the window what ever size you like.

Should you wish to pop this style of window from within a .html document instead of from within Tourweaver you could use basically the same code within the body <body></body> tags of the .html page.

//Into <body> of document//

<a title="javascript:fullwin('http://www.your_url.com/sub_directory.html)">your link</a>

</body>

Or do it with an image

//Into <body> of document//

<a title="javascript:fullwin('http://www.your_url.com/sub_directory.html')"><img src="your_image.jpg"></a>

</body>

Regards, Smooth
