Select an image that you want to use for the effect and save it as a GIF or
JPEG. If you want to make a NavBar then place your buttons vertically or horizontally
next to each other in one image. Now insert the applet tag into your html-document.
The easiest approach would be to cut and paste the applet tags from one of
the examples that came with this package and then edit the parameters. Explanation
of what the parameters do is listed below. If you are using a wysiwyg-editor
(PageMill, Dreamweaver, etc..) then the recommended approach is to select
the applet from one of the examples and "copy and paste" it to your
own file. You can now play with the parameters to configure it to your liking.
The fastest way of doing this is by using a good wysiwyg-editor.
- Now just upload the files to your web-server and you're done!
| width, height
|| These are the standard applet tags describing
the width and height of the applet in pixels.
|| The filename of the image to use. This is
relative to the html-document.
| lightsizex, lightsizey
|| This is the size of the lightsource in pixels.Default
|| Decides how much the applet 'twists'. Default
value is 50.
|| The color used for background in format rrggbb.
|| The amount of light that the lightsource
consist of. Default is 128. If you don't want a lightsource, set this
value to zero and the lightsourcing routine won't be called.
|| The target url when using the applet as a
button or NavBar. If using a NavBar then this value is any number of
target url's, separated by a space character. Omit this if the applet
is not supposed to link to anything. * Tip - You can issue a mailto:
command as you would in HTML, i.e. mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org! *
|| This option lets the user specify which frame
to open a target url in. If omitted, it targets the default frame.
|| This is the orientation of the NavBar. v
for vertical or h for horizontal. Case-sensitive.
To make a Nav-bar, choose orientation and put together your menu-items in
a bigger GIF or JPEG. The menu-items must be of the same size as the hotspots
are determined by a division of the width/height and the number of URL's.
Refer to the examples to make any sense out of this.
This applet depends on the following jar file:
If you're uploading class-files, these are the ones you need:
DuriusTwirl.class, Light.class, WrApp.class, Screen32.class
