Howto embed an Flash animation into EVRsoft 1stpage 2000

Adding a custom-made Flash animation to 1stpage is a snap. By following these simple steps, you will be up and running in no time at all and impressing all of your visitors with your talents!

First create your Flash animation.

1. Open 1stpage
2. Select the HTML page into which you want to insert the animation, or start from scratch and open a new page
3. Save the HTML file to your website directory
4. Go to "Options" and select "Switch to advanced/expert mode"
5. Click on the advanced tab (figure01)
6. Then click on the Macromedia Flash Icon (figure01)

Insert Flash into 1stpage

6. Now you will see that the following code appears in your HTML page:

object classid="clsid:166b1bca-3f9c-11cf-8075-444553540000" codebase=",0,1,0" width="32" height="32">
<param name="src" value="shockwave-file.swf">
<embed src="sockwave-file.swf" pluginspage="" type="application/x-director" width="32" height="32">

7. Since this code does not reflect the proper file name, dimensions and some other parameters, we suggest that you replace the above code in your HTML document with the HTML code generated by our tools.

8. This code can be found in our Flash tools when you save the Flash animation to your hard disk (figure02)


9. Click on Copy to clipboard
10. Go back to your HTML page in Evrsoft
11. Select the code between the object tags
12. Paste the code as generated by the Amara tool

Important: If you save the file to a sub directory such as graphics you should make sure that this path is also reflected in the HTML code. Our software assumes that you save the file in the root of your webpage. However, if you save the file into a graphics directory, for example, the correct path to the file should be "graphics/your-swf-file.swf" instead of just "your-swf-file.swf"

13, Then go to File/Save your HTML file
14. To preview your work click on File/Preview in browser
13. There you have it, a nice simple way to add a little extra pizzazz to your presentation!
