A flash image rotator as standalone slideshow app

Published on by Yousfi Benameur


this project shows how to build an standalone executable application as slideshow  with
-flash component as swf
-javascript libraries as js files.
i already pointed this method in previous post.
the exe produced can play  anywhere on system (with vfp environment).it rebuild in temp folder the needed components to work.

this builds an images rotator (diaporama or slideShow).it gathers all images (jpg,png,gif,bmp) from any folder
- can add a music to play the diaporama (i added a windows mediaplayer as activeX).
the fullscreen can be set with the toolbar appearing at the bottom of the page.
click on the page to close (or issue ALT+F4).
its a mixed code with vfp,flash and javascript.the swf is an old one free for personal use (it shows a logo jwplayer on the diaporama).it apply a random transition between images.Can embed a great quantity of images( i tried more 250 images format  800x600).
the images are linked with absolute paths to avoid to embed them each time on a special folder.
Can replace a personal image logo (yb.png in project) appears at the top right of the diaporama.
can download the zip below an run the exe file(compiled under vfp9sp2) or recompile the project relative to the vfp version in use.

the exe produced is standalone application and dont needs anything to play from anywhere on windows system (with vfp runtime of course).
this project is tested on vfp9 sp2 under windows10 pro-IE11 emulation.

-Note:if you run the exe run it as administrator to avoid an error message.
