Fullscreen Slideshow
« on: December 03, 2003, 01:40:30 am »

First I have to thank you for the amazing job that have been done.

I searched the old and present forum about a fullscreen like feature but no luck...
So I throw the idea, when you click on start slideshow, why does it not display the pictures in full screen and large format ?

I don't know how hard it is to modify the code but it could be a nice feature, what do you think ?

If you'd like to see a kind of commercial implementation of a fullscreen slideshow have a look to: (I don't work for them, hey  :P )

If memory serves, all full screen slideshows are Java applets, which we tend to avoid like the plague due to issues that make Java applets troublesome in wide use situations. If someone wanted to make a full screen slideshow modification, we would gladly place it on the MODS board.

You don't need any Java, really.  You can use DHTML to open up a new "full screen" window, and then display any html page within it to do the slideshow.  I've gotten this to work, but I am having trouble integrating it into the complex php environment of cpg.

Here's an HTML page with code that opens up a full screen window with no menu, or nav bars.  This is linked to a button named "slideshow" and will attempt to display the contents of the file 'do_slide_show.htm'   The do_slide_show page would loop through the images, and include the "stop slideshow" button which merely has to close its own window.

Any one else care to contribute the do_slide_show page?  ;)

   var width = 100,height = 100;
   if (window.screen) {
      width = window.screen.width+20;
      height = window.screen.height+70;
   //var QString = 'pictureID=' + ID + '&color=' + _fullColor + '&javaColor1=1&javaColor2=2&javaColor3=3';               
   var fullSize ='do_slide_show.htm','fullView','fullscreen=0,toolbar=0,location=0,directories=0,status=0,menubar=0,scrollbars=0,resizable=0');
   fullSize.resizeTo(width, height);
   fullSize.moveTo(-10, -35);





<a href="javascript:fullWindow();">slideshow</a>

hehe, it's easy to open a full-size window with JavaScript, that is not the issue. Coding a proper DHTML slideshow (cross-browser compatible) is the hard things, with image preloads, transistions and all the fancy stuff. I'm currently experimenting with alternative slideshows, but imo most of them suck for one reason or the other.
Imo hyperion is right: the best thing would be a separate applet, but I don't think anyone from the dev team will take care of this that soon.
