Hi all,

I'm having a bit of an issue with a task I need to have completed very soon!

Firstly here is something similar which I need to create.

I already have all of my qtvr files created however I am clueless about html and webdesign and need some advice.

I want to create a similar set up to the linked web page, with a QTVR and some links around it which when clicked on will open up a new QTVR. How will I go about designing this? I have Dreamweaver up and ready to go but dont know where to start with getting the QTVR's to open and to open in the same page when clicked on.

Sorry rant on a bit but I really need a solution to this.

Well, you can always look at the sourcecode of the example.

Right-click > view source

I see that the javascript is included, so if you understand some code, you can use it as a basis for your own.

Hi euan

I had a quick look at the source for that page :roll:

Each of those thumbnails actually loads a totaly different page, identical apart from the qtvr not an Ideal solution but probably the way to go if you have no HTML

Hi guys, thanks for taking a look for me. Noisey if happy to do it using the seperate page set up. How would I go about importing the QTVR page into Dreamweaver (sorry if that seems a trivial question) but having a bit of trouble.

Thanks for your help

If I understand it right, you want the page displayed in dreamweaver, so it's like saving the file in your browser and opening it in dreamweaver?

Yeah I just want to create my site which is exactly the same as the one linked (but with different colours etc) and have the qtvr in running when its opened.

Sorry to cause confusion.

Sorry I don't use Dreamweaver and don't have access to it I'm sure if you look up "embed object " in the helpfiles it will tell you somthing it's probably a simple insertion.

the code on that page that holds the vr is like this

Code: Select all

	<OBJECT CLASSID="clsid:02BF25D5-8C17-4B23-BC80-D3488ABDDC6B" WIDTH="460" HEIGHT="300" CODEBASE="" border="0">
		<PARAM name="SRC" VALUE="qt/">
		<PARAM name="AUTOPLAY" VALUE="true">
		<PARAM name="CONTROLLER" VALUE="false">

		  <EMBED SRC="qt/" WIDTH="460" HEIGHT="300" AUTOPLAY="true" CONTROLLER="false" PLUGINSPAGE="">

you could copy that and change the dimensions and of course the filename to suit
