Host a Model on Web

Post Author: Elizabeth Coleman

CA Forum: Xcelsius and Live Office

Hello,

I created five models in Xcelsius 4.5 where I inserted URL Link Buttons to link the models. I saved each file as "swf", my audience is able to view the files if I send them all five of the "swf" files via email. I would like to be to host the models on the web as a single model instead of five different models. I found an example on the Xcelsius Showcase web site of what I'm trying to accomplish at URL: http://www.xcelsius.com/Examples/Overview.html. Financial Visual Business Model is example of what I would like to duplicate. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Are these 5 models inter-related? I'd guess no based on your descriptions (and separate .swf can't talk to each other anyway - not with Xcelsius that is). I would just create a .html page and put the 5 .swf objects inside that. That would give the user one page with the five separate models. They would sit on the page like images but be interactive. Create the tabs with css or images and the .swf sits below that as if the are one. The tabs load the respective .swf file.

    The example you referred to uses a web page and overlays the 3 .swf files (shown in the title bar as finance1.swf, etc.) These are separate files and not connected to each other (changes in one aren't reflect in the other). An alternate is to use the panel component in 4.5 Pro which lets you view multiple .swf files in one larger view. These are not connected, however so the user would see 'n' number of panes (like a window in your house) each with a separate .swf file. This only looks good if the .swf are small and simple.

    On the AnalysisFactory site, they have it for sale and you can see one using a web page front-end, http://analysisfactory.com/af_finance/profit_and_loss.html
