Adding Time Based Pictures

You can use the Time Based Picture component to display different pictures at the same location on your page at the time of day you specify. You select the image to display and specify the hour at which to display it. The browser automatically displays the picture at the specified time. The picture remains on the page until it is time for the next picture to be displayed.

NetObjects Fusion supports .gif and .jpg formats in components. See Choosing an Image Format.

To add time based pictures and set the properties:

  1. In Page view, select the Time Based Picture tool from the NOF Standard toolbox.
  2. Draw a box on the page where you want to locate the picture.

A picture placeholder and the Time Based Picture Properties panel appear.

  1. Click the Number of Images row and specify the number of images you want to rotate.

You can use up to 24 images. NetObjects Fusion adds an Image, Start Time for Image, and URL for Image row for each image.

  1. To select an image, double-click the Image row, select the image from the Picture File Open dialog, and click Open.
  2. To create a link to the image, double-click the URL for Image row and in the Link dialog select a type of link for the image. See Creating Links.
  3. Click the Start Time for Image row and select a starting time from the drop- down list.

The start time determines when the image is displayed on your site. You can select one-hour increments from 12 a.m. to 12 p.m. The image is displayed until the next image's starting time. Be sure images have consecutive starting times.

  1. Repeat steps 4 through 6 for each image you add.

You can add an action to an object using the Actions tab. See Building Dynamic Pages.
