My website displays jpg images, each image features several random people.
I am looking for a very simple flash tool that enables users to indicate (in a photo displaying several people) which of the people in the photo is themselves.
The user clicks on their face in the photo and submits the form. The x and y co-ordinates of their mouse click are passed to a form action page where I will update my table. (you don’t need to do any table or layout stuff as I can take care of all that) – I just need a flash move and a form that passes the co-ordinates.
You do not need to change the image in any way, you merely display the image, record the x/y co-ordinates of where the user clicks and pass that data via a form.
My site is written in Coldfusion 7.
Ideally I want this written in an early version of flash so that anyone with (even an old version) of flash can use this tool.
How the flash tool is to perform:
The flash tool will display a jpg image
users can click anywhere on the image
clicking on the image causes an oscillating* red circle to appear (centred on where they clicked) and 2 variables are set x_coord and y_coord (relative to the bottom left hand corner of the photo)
if they click again (elsewhere on the photo) the first circle simply disappears and is replaced by a new circle (centred on their new click) and the 2 (x_coord and y_coord ) variables are updated
when they click the submit button x_coord and y_coord are passed via a form
Whilst mouseing over the photo (when they have NOT clicked ie x_coord and y_coord EQ null), the cursor is to have a tool top extending from it with the text “click on your face”. This tool tip is to be a gif of approx 100 px wide by 15 px high.
Whilst mouseing over the photo (when they HAVE clicked ie x_coord and y_coord NEQ null), the cursor is to have a tool top extending from it with the text “now click finished, or click again to move the red circle”. This tool tip is to be a gif of approx 100 px wide by 30 px high.
*oscillating red circle. Once a user has clicked somewhere on the photo, the location that they clicked on is marked with an ossilating red circle. Ie a red circle centre x_coord,y_coord of ever changing diameter, going from quite small to quite big and back again in a constant loop. Eg smallest diameter = 10 pixels, largest diameter = 80 pixels, steps = 10 pixels.
I would also like you to write some flash detection code, if a user does not have flash I will divert them to another page. (you only need to write the flash detection code, not the page it diverts to – I will take care of that).
Variables for you to work with:
[url removed, login to view]
Eg img src = “photos/#variables.photoID#.jpg”
Form action = “[url removed, login to view]”
Variables to pass in the form = x_coord, y_coord, photoID
You do not need to write “[url removed, login to view]” I will do that you just need to pass the variables to that page please.
I also need an admin page that shows the administrator where the user clicked.
SELECT x_coord, y_coord, photoID
<img src = “photos/# rs_faces.photoID#.jpg”
positions an oscillating* red circle (like the one described above) centred on rs_faces.x_coord, rs_faces.y_coord
You don’t need to make this page look pretty – I will do all the layout stuff later.
Any queries then please email me, thanks very much
