if you have any question about other developers' extensions, please post them in their original thread.
as simple as it is.
if i have a question about some topic and i post in other's thread, how the developer will find my question to give me an answer? besides this, it can be interpreted as "hijacking".

it seems you didn't get the point.
how this thread (or any other topic) can be useful and for the benefit to all if the users using this extension (or any other one) post questions not related to the extension itself? will be confusing, don't you think?
second, i never said or took as hijacking, i crystal clear said: "it can be interpreted as".
that's all. let's try to preserve the topics' usefulness.

Hello [RZ], how are you doing?

I am trying to do something with the extension, it is working great, but I faced something:

I have the oc2 extension for 2 layers set to docking and the dock mode is "Full", one green and one red, the only open/close mode that is working is the "fade", the slides do not work.
In your Fullsize background extension, you told me that when clicking the right down arrows it uses the layer extension but it works well in the sliding to the right and left, so can I accomplish this with what am doing?

Thank you.

*****EDIT*****
This is what you said in the fullsize background extension page:
"you can do this multiple slideshows background using the layers extensions.
use the prev/next extension.
add the slideshows you want (with the images you want in each one)
instead of pointing to yourlayerNo point to yourslideshowNo
(don't forget to add the proportional fullsize extension pointing to the slideshows, of course)
both simple and amazing, don't you think?"

I think I got the idea :)
Sorry for that but I feel lazy reading today :oops:
I will try it and let you know :)

Thanks a lot :)

you may be doing something wrong.
i'm checking this right now with docked layers and sticky layers, and the extensions are sliding right and fading as expected.
if you still facing issues, you can zip and mail me the problematic project to see what you are doing.

on regard the slideable/fadeable slideshows, that's right, this is how a did it and that is what i said.
again, you can zip and mail me the non-working sample, so i will be able to see what are you doing.

i can ensure that in both cases the extensions are working as expected...
with regards.

Hi [RZ], I am having a few performance issues with this extension

I have an icon which opens up a sticky layer (top right), and also an icon which closes it, the layer is just a basic block colour no shadows and has a CMS menu inside the layer - this works perfectly.

I have another sticky layer (top left), same operation as the one above, this time it has some html container inside (facebook), for some reason when this one closes it stutters (not smooth operation)

I have tried adding an extra "[RZ]Layers lib" to no avail, is there an explanation for this behaviour, maybe it is due to the streaming facebook data ??

Ideas pls


Thnx ;)

@FX3D
thanks for your interest in this extension.

you don't need to add the layers lib twice, only one will be enough for the whole page no matter how many instances or how many extensions of this set you added.

although i'm aware for this "flickering" behavior with some external third party code, i'm afraid there is nothing we can do about it. but you can try this:

put your external code into a layer.
treat this layer as the main layer, so open and close it with no effect or fade effect (slide effects may cause in some cases this annoying flickering).
add another layer and treat it as the base layer, you can add any of the effects list with no issue at all.
this base layer will be opened first, and then, the main layer will be opened.
(don't forget to align them properly, kind of one acts as a container of the second.)
this resource, of course, is available in the oc and oc2 extensions; take a look at the properties dialog.

hope this helps.
regards.

Thnx for looking at this [RZ], it seems if there is an HTML container box inside the layer (at least with streaming data anyway) the "moving/sliding" animations stutter, fade seems to work fine though

Other things added to layers (slideshow, menu, images, text etc) do not seem to have issues

I will use fade this will suffice ;) :P

please open the attached sample project, you will see how to open two layers; the base first, then the main.
this is a "multi-purpose" function, not only for advanced design reasons, but also for this problematic third party code; also it will be useful for inlineframes with php content (some servers may cause this "flickering" when the layer slades).
the fade effect has a downside in ie8 and earlier, the text is distorted during the fade process... but it should be less annoying than the first issue you stated.
anyhow, the trick is available, use it or leave it (means using other effect like fade).
regards.
