Chapter 6. Making the Most of FlashPaper > Customizing the FlashPaper Viewer

Customizing the FlashPaper Viewer

FlashPaper is perfectly suited for helping content contributors make documents of all kinds available on the Web. Moreover, the FlashPaper viewer is well suited to hosting Flash documents of all types. However, a large part of being a designer is to make choices and exercise control over the layout and content of a page. Some documents, although perfect candidates for FlashPaper conversion, are not intended to be copied and/or printed. The documentation that accompanies FlashPaper includes information on the FlashPaper API, with details on exacting more control over the FlashPaper viewer programmatically. These details, however, are meaningful only to the most adept Flash programmers. How can the Dreamweaver designer take advantage of FlashPaper's potential customization?

Dreamweaver has a rich history of extensibility and a key focus on maintaining the openness of the program. In this lesson, you'll install a Dreamweaver extension, the FlashPaper Viewer, that allows you, at design time, to specify the Flash document (converted with FlashPaper) to display, the initial magnification, the initial page of the document, and which toolbar controls are available. The FlashPaper Viewer, built by this book's author and included on your CD-ROM, falls into the extension category called Flash element. A Flash element contains a series of modifiable parameters that are set though Dreamweaver's Tag panel. Once set, the parameters are inserted in the page's Flash document code.
