target

Insert Node Parameter: target (6-1.4) [no content]

Add a window target in a link. For example

   [node:123 target=_blank; link]

This option only applies to links and defines the target attribute of those links, as created with:

Insert Node Parameter: title (6-1.1),

Insert Node Parameter: link (5-1.0), or

Insert Node Parameter: more (6-1.1).

Using the target option by itself resets the Insert Node module to the default behavior (i.e. no target attribute):

   [node:123 target=_blank; link target more]

The title link will have target="_blank" and the more link will not.

Note that this data is

Simplemenu Settings

Menu Settings

Menu

Select the menu to be displayed as the Simplemenu. By default, we display the Navigation Menu which makes the most sense for administrator (as the Simplemenu was primarily created for administrators wanting to quickly go to all administration pages.)

Theme

Select a theme to display your Simplemenu items and dropdowns. The default is called original.

The themes reside in the module sub-folder named themes. Each theme is defined in a specific directory named after the theme. That name is what appears in the dropdown in the settings.

It is possible to add new themes as

Set Target (dynamic)

SWF Action
Action Category:

Action Details: 
(dynamic)
Action Identifier: 
32
Action Structure: 
<n.a.>
Action Length: 
0 byte(s)
Action Stack: 
pop 1 (s)
Action Operation: 
s1 := pop();
set_target(s1);
Action Flash Version: 
3

Pop one string from the stack. If the string is the empty string, then the next actions apply to the main movie. Otherwise it is the name of a Sprite1 and the followings actions apply to that Sprite only.

  • 1. Note that the name of a sprite is specified in the PlaceObject2 tag so as to be able to include the same DefineSprite tag multiple times and still be able to distinguish each instance.

With

SWF Action

Action Stack: 
pop 1 (o)
Action Operation: 
with o1
  // execute f_size bytes of actions
  ...
end with;
Action Flash Version:

The variable references within the following f_size bytes of action are taken as names of members of the specified object o1. When no member of that name is available in that object, the previous With, or the corresponding global variable is queried. This is similar to the Pascal language with instruction or to the Set Target (dynamic) for movies.

Set Target

string   f_target;
Action Length: 
-1 byte(s)
Action Stack: 
n.a.
Action Operation: 
set_target(f_target);
Action Flash Version:

If the string f_target is the empty string, then the next actions apply to the main movie.

Otherwise it is the name of a Sprite and the followings actions apply to that Sprite only.

In order to use a dynamic name for the target, use Set Target (dynamic) instead.

Enter the standard (default) auto-loop playback. The action only affects the current target.

To stop the playback, use the Stop action.

Get URL2

Action Operation: 
s1 := pop();
s2 := pop();
s1.load(s2, f_method);
Action Flash Version:

Pop two strings, the URL (s2) and the target name (s1).

All the usual HTML target names seem to be supported (_top, _blank, <frame name>, etc.) You can also use the special internal names _level0 to _level10. _level0 is the current movie. Other levels, I'm still not too sure how these can be used.

n.a.
Action Operation: 
f_target.load(f_url);
Action Flash Version:

Load the specified URL in the specified target window.

When the target is set as "_level0", the current SWF file is replaced by the file specified in the f_url field. The name in the f_url field should be a proper SWF file or the area will simply become black.

When the target is set as "_level1", something special is supposed to happen. I still don't know what it is...
Also the effect of _level1 + an empty URL is ... (to remove level1?)
