In playing with this script I think I have found that if you don't have 10 images the player doesn't show anything after it loads.  

Yep I just reproduced it 2 times with 2 different gr3 products! Once there were 10 images the player worked.  So I guess if you want a specific product of gr3 on for a weather event, you either have to start uploading the product 2 hours before the event, otherwise if you turn it on a few minures before, 8 or 9 of the images in your annimation will be old images from the last time you had that product on!  Is there a way in the script to tell it to play the images even if there is only 1 or 2 or 8(you get the picture)?

And then how hard would it be to tell the script to ignore images that are more than say 3 hours (give or take) old!

I am not knocking the script!  In fact I love this script.  I like the player and the versitility (ie: zoom-pan) of the player.

Just throwing a few things out there to see if I understand them correctly and if the changes mentioned can be made.

Again I think this is an awesome script!

Hey Gordon,

If I'm understanding this correctly, you've moved wxgr3radar.php down one level in the directory and it's no longer in the same directory as settings.php and common.php. I think you need to put "../" in front of those files so they can be found in the correct directory.

Steve

Hi ya Steve...hoping all is well!

Thanks for that...unfortunately, that just generated another error:

Warning: fopen() [function.fopen]: Unable to access ./flyout-menu.xml in /virtual/users/e16409-17610/web/flyout-menu.php on line 79

Warning: fopen(./flyout-menu.xml) [function.fopen]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /virtual/users/e16409-17610/web/flyout-menu.php on line 79
could not open XML input from ./flyout-menu.xml

Line 79 of the flyout-menu.php file shows...

if (!($fp = fopen($MENUdef, "r"))) {
    die("could not open XML input from $MENUdef ");

...which is referenced in the Settings section at the top of the same file:

$MENUdef = './flyout-menu.xml'; // (relative) file location of XML menu definition file

Not sure why all the fuss. From what I read, getting this script to work should be simple (in theory...lol)

I got to agree! In theory it should be a simple inclusion but in reality,for me anyway, it has been a small scale nightmare.
Best I can do is having all my menu and everything on the template show except the flash animation and of course this
error  Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in /home/kg4muc/public_html/wxradarloop.php on line 46

There has to be a trick somewhere that we're overlooking I suppose :lol:

Hey Gordon,

Doing well. Hope you are too. (BTW, check out my newly updated site at www.tylertexasweather.com).

Here's the approach I used to get it to work.

Keep wxgr3radar.php in its original directory (not in GR3). That way all the "requires" and "includes" should still work correctly.

Now, in the <object> section of your page, put a "/" in front both instances of "flanis/flanis.swf".

Next, change both instances of the configFilename to read "/GR3/grlevel3.txt". Your config file should now be found. I'm assuming you're not pointing to any directory with the images inside grlevel3.txt since they are already in the GR3 folder.

As I mentioned, this is how I got mine to work. Hopefully you will as well.

Steve,

Thank you...and oh so close.

http://www.oldlineweather.com/wxgr3radar_br.php

Definitely a path issue somewhere...as the images are not loading...but the framework is there.

BTW, nice revamp on your site!

Gordon,

Not sure if this is the problem, but I see you put a "/" in front of GR3 in only 1 of the 4 file references. I think all 4 need this "/" in front of the GR3 folder.

Wayne,

After reviewing your code, a couple of things immediately jump out at me. First, your coding of the "/" is not correct. Your references to the swf file should be value="/flanis/flanis.swf" and src="/flanis/flanis.swf".

Next, I don't know what the name of your config file is or where it's located, so for example purposes, I'm going to call it myconfig.txt and assume it's in the flanis folder. Now your 2 references to it should be: configFilename=/flanis/myconfig.txt .

You're correct Steve. It's in the flanis file thats inside of the GR3 directory.
config file is fianisconfig.txt   It's actually mispelled on the name but I done that in the early AM so I've just left it that way.

I will change the code you mentioned and see what happens..


Thanks for the help!!!

I have changed the FlAniS applet code so you can keep all of your grlevel3 files in their original or separate folder. This was done to make it easier for you to change.

Danny,

Ahhh...now thats more like it!

I'm using VWS, as my software, can I use the template or no?  I'm thinking no!

For now I have the radar types listed seperately:

http://www.peotoneweather.com/gr3/br248.php
http://www.peotoneweather.com/gr3/br2.php
http://www.peotoneweather.com/gr3/str.php
http://www.peotoneweather.com/gr3/et.php
http://www.peotoneweather.com/gr3/vil.php

I am only familiar with the WD PHP Template. Can't you still plug in the same body section of the template above into your VWS template?

I recommend keeping with the example so you do not experience any unwanted surprises. The code in the body section in the above sample template code should be template neutral and able to be used within any of the templates I would think.

It is optional to use the full address to each image, but has nothing to do with which template type you are using. By using the full URL to your images you break the applet code and no longer need the "image_base=" sections in the applet code.

Sorry I didn't supply the code for the templates many of you use. I don't use the templates on my site so I don't usually think in terms of templates. I do however keep a set of PHP templates for testing.. So I already had the templates.

Awesome! Thanks! To be honest, it was our own SteveFitz1 who really got me going several years ago when he had his site located in North Carolina...

I think I speak for the majority when I say our weather websites are a perpetual "work in progress"...

Im not sure what part of the wd template you have above I should use.  Nor am I sure where to put it?  I don't have some of the php codes you have in the template.  I tried part of it but ended up with this error...Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '<' in /home/content/p/e/o/peotone/html/gr3/testpage.php on line 286

I'm not sure how to proceed?

I'm not sure how to proceed?

1.  Read my post to you a few posts up from here, its been edited.

2.  Do you have the file named "radar-status.php" in with your template files?

3.  Please post your VWS template code for me to look at.

4.  Please give me the full URL to your "flanis" folder.

5.  Please give me the full URL to your "grlevel3" folder where you have the images.

6.  Please give me the full URL to your grlevel3 with the applet code...

NOTE: Don't worry, we'll get you all up and running perfectly. If it goes to easy for you, you won't learn anything...  :grin:

Flanis folder is http://www.peotoneweather.com/gr3/flanis
grlevel3 folder is http://www.peotoneweather.com/gr3
Here is a page with the original aplet code working http://www.peotoneweather.com/gr3/br248.php


Thankyou for your help.  Since I don't have one of the standard templates nothing is plug and play for me.  It is also harder to learn.

OK here it goes...

I do not have a file "radar-status.php".
I don't have a VWS template, it is a template I made on my own with DreamWeaver!

It looks like you are running perfectly already! I don't see any changes you need to make, your page looks great. The new post with the new instructions are for Template users only and should not concern you at all. Of course you could always redo your site to the official VWS template files if you wanted to.  :-P

All I'm looking for is a way to have a menu with radar types right above the radar that you can select from (br248-br2-ET- etc...!  For now I have all the types listed under grlevel3 radar in the left hand side navigation menu!

Here is a snippet of the code for the links:
Code: [Select]
<table style="border:1px solid #000000;">
<tr><td style="padding:3px;" align="center">
<form action="">
<span style="color:#000000; font-size:13px; font-family:arial, times new roman;">
<b>Select radar type:</b> &nbsp;
</span>
<select style="border:1px solid #000000; background-color:#FFFFFF; font-size:11px;" name="menu" onchange="top.location.href = this.form.menu.options[this.form.menu.selectedIndex].value; return false;">
<option value="#">Types of Nexrad Doppler Radar</option>
<option value="#">&nbsp;</option>
<option value="link-to-br1-radar-goes-here">- BR1 - Base Reflectivity 0.5&deg;</option>
<option value="link-to-cr-radar-goes-here">- CR - Composite Reflectivity</option>
<option value="link-to-cr248-radar-goes-here">- CR248 - Composite Reflectivity 248nm</option>
<option value="link-to-br248-radar-goes-here">- BR248 - Base Reflectivity 248nm</option>
<option value="link-to-ohr-radar-goes-here">- OHR - 1 Hour Rainfall Totals</option>
<option value="link-to-thr-radar-goes-here">- THR - 3 Hour Rainfall Totals</option>
<option value="link-to-shr-radar-goes-here">- SHR - Storm Rainfall Totals</option>
</select>
</form>
</td></tr></table>

If you like you can use and position the above table/form code anywhere on your page. Just change the URL's and customize or change it anyway you want. You can put the links menu anywhere on your page, ie "top center", top right, or top left etc.

Thanks Danny!!!

The code for the menu bar works perfectly!!! 

http://www.peotoneweather.com/gr3/br248.php

I've noticed when there are no images or less then ten 10 images for a radar type, the player does not load.  It will sit empty, almost like its waiting to load!

Can the player be made to play images even if there is less then 10 available?  And is there a way to put a message on the player when this occurs?  Something like this GRLevel3 option is not available at this time.

Thanks Again Danny!
Your hard work is appreciated by all!

I can second that motion!!  Thanks Danny!!

I think I have finally gotten all the products I normally provide up and running and on the main menu under gr3 radar.

Greatly appreciate all the hard work you put in getting this project to work and I think I can speak for all involved in saying we are grateful
for the assistance!
