Project Description

Hi --

I am looking for someone to modify an 'existing' flash applet (source code available). It's a rather easy job -- I just need to be able to add 'parameters' to customize the applet.

The actual applet is located here:

[url removed, login to view]

Right now the variables are hardcoded, but this is what I want as parameters (as part of the HTML code for the applet)

a) The actual 'text' string. (Right now its hardcoded). So it might be: "textstring=..."

b) The 'color' of the text (right now its set to red)

c) The color of the 'unlit' dots (its a darker red right now)

c) The color of the 'background' (right now its set to black)


tickerTextString = “this is a sample textstring”;

tickerTextColor = “#FFFFFF”;

tickerDotColor = “#808080”;

tickerBackgroundColor = “#000000”;

b) Obviously, ticker should be resized (including images) based on the width & height parameters

c) Incorporate 'images' in the ticker stream. So for example, the text string might become something like:

$textString = "Hi! How are you [img:/web/dir/[url removed, login to view]] I'm great! Thanks! [img:/web/dir/[url removed, login to view]]" etc

where the image is located at /web/dire/[url removed, login to view] on the webserver.

And then it would 'automatically' resize the image to fit within that stream. (So say I had a 200x100 image, but the 'ticker height' was only 50px, then it would do 200/4=50, 100/4 = 25 -> 100,25, maintaining the aspect ratio).

Anyways, ideally you'd finish this in 1-2 days.
