I´m afraid only way to do that is use another "loader" SWF and make it turn pages by using timer class. I have done that eDocker-freebie and actually that other sample url (in dropbox) is also made with that eDocker freebie, just earlier version... but it´s also based external SWF loader.....
Thanks Alot for your comment.
Well, the only disadvanage of using the eDocker is that the viewer can see that black square under the original SWF.
If you say that this: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/17227987/autopageturn/index.html
was made by eDocker, than i want to learn how to do it too, because in there i dont see any big black square
If the only way to do it is by another SWF - but hidden - than its fine.
Thank you so much, for a moment I tought that you solved my problem but this solution is not perfect
because this site add the logo "flahxml.net", and the buttons next/prev - which i dont need..
Is there any way to remove those options?
Thank you Cari
if someone here knows how http://www.edocker.com/support/edocker-freeies/ works then it would be very helpfull
Download and unzip the older package from:
Then simply replace SWFfromID.swf with your own exported SWF, use exactly same name... open index.html to your browser...
After testing, upload whole folder to your server.
Thank you Patteri! You solve it!
I appreciate this a lot!!
Last two questions..
1. How to i make the animation to run as a loop? over and over..
2. How do I set the "stay time" of any image?
please guys i need your help
This link doesnt seem to work any more. Does anyone know where I can find this?
I am making a slide show in indesign which im exporting as a swf, but want the pages to auto change.
Hello, Petteri. Do you still have this PageTurner script for IndesignSWF available? All the links I've checked on this thread are dead.
Which is fairly appropriate since SWF is dead, too.
What are you trying to do here?
Hey, Bob. I'm trying to turn an InDesign multi-page brochure I've created for a client into a looping movie they can play in their booth at a trade show (I've animated several elements individually on each page, so it's a little more than just a flat image slideshow). I'll then attempt to convert the SWF into a movie.
The last time I did this type of project, I ended up having to pile all the elements from 10+ pages onto one page, then pore thru each element and push out the display time for each. Not fun. I thought by now there should be a simple solution...
Again, SWF is a deadend and the idea that anyone would spend time developing for it is a pipe dream.
I would not be using InDesign for this but something more dedicated to the task such as Powerpoint or Keynote.
Thanks, Bob. I might use Keynote for this, but it's so attractive/useful to have all the animating tools right within InDesign (and the brochure design is already built in InDesign, so all I had to do was resize the pages to fit their screen), that it seems an obvious oversight not to provide an automatic page transition option. Like everybody else, I dislike having to recreate the wheel for the sake of such a small (but nonetheless integral) element. :-/
Thanks for your help.
