Fullscreen: popup url

Hi!

I'm looking for a way to have a website pop up while still running the tour in fullscreen mode (the same way an swf file or image pops up). When I create a hotspot with a link to url action the tour will leave fullscreen and the website will open in the standard web browser.

It would open lots of possibilites if I could have the web site displayed "inside" the tour. Any way to accomplish this using Java etc?

I am also looking for an integrated way to display pdf files (with zoom/navigation function). I've tried using various third party applications but the resolution seems to be an issue (only a small section of the page in a document is visible inside the popup box - using swftools which creates swf files combined with rfxviewever or zviewer). Any suggestions?

I'm using TourWeaver 4 Pro

Thanks!

Hi, here is the javascript you need to open a pop up window:

newwindow=window.open("http://www.yourwebsitelink.html",'popupwindow',
  'width=400,height=375,left=300,top=100');

Just insert your own url and change the width and height to suit the window size.

I do not think it is possible to have it display inside the tour.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for your suggestion. This is what I've tried and as you mention it looks like it is not possible to have it popup while still running fullscreen.

Maybe there's some sort of swf application that can fetch a url and display it inside the tour?

Below is the best script I have found so far for a full browser popup window, which can be customised to show/hide Status Bar & Address bar, besides other elements..

let me know if anyone finds a better solution -
Cheers




<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
<!--

winWidth = 800; // sets a default width for browsers who do not understand screen.width below
winheight = 600; // ditto for height

if (screen){ // weeds out older browsers who do not understand screen.width/screen.height
   winWidth = screen.width;
   winHeight = screen.height;
}
     
// this function calls a popupWindow where
// win is the page address i.e. '../page.htm'

function popupWindow(win){
     
     newWindow = window.open(win,'newWin','toolbar=no,adressbar=no,location=no,scrollbars=no,resizable=yes,width='+winWidth+',height='+winHeight+',left=0,top=0');
     newWindow.focus();
}
// -->
</script>

Hi, I have tied this but it does not seem to work. I replaced the win with http://www.google.com but all i get is a message "path incorrect"

Could you give me a working example to paste in the Execute Script box so that I can see what I am doing wrong.

many thanks

For the PDF you might want to check out Madmux (Forum Conributer) Deep Zoom

His  Tourweaver components: http://www.optitecha.lt/categories/3

Or Flippingbooks http://lic.page-flip.com/Products

Test site with Flipbooks PDF implimented here http://www.jaxtour.com/fip

Click on the "PDF File" button top left it's a pretty nice app

Lee,

Your tour has a layout issue when viewed on wider screen resolutions.

You need to make the components much wider and anchor appropriately.

Your Google Map API key mustn't match this URL as it fails. Also the tour rotation is much too fast on a powerful computer.

The Slideshow looks very mush like one of the products from www.increditools.com like Incredishow.

Personally I don't like the use of random transitions for each slide. But it's just a personal preference.

Yes it is Incredishow - I also have ProShow Gold, but it doesn't work with TW for some reason. I'm using the random transitions because this is going to be for a Community website - but you are correct for FSBO or a realtor I would definetly go traditional.

Smooth thanks for the advice I just downloaded the new project from EP and am playing with it and I need to do some MAJOR work on it, but yes I am working on the Google map API (i forgot the API is tied to integritytours.com and this is on jaxtour.com duh!!!)[;)]  

But how did you like the PDF option that was my main point to "cegeland"
