We are in need of a Flash menu system along the top and bottom of a window that auto-hides after an idle period.
Our basic requirements are as follows:
Minimum design should be a SVGA 800x600 size (configurable upto QSXGA 2560x2048)
A flash screen that is fully customisable after the fact using images stored in a local folder.
The menu should be configurable via a configuration file that states:
Timeout period (for auto hiding)
Total menus at top and bottom (separate for both)
Each main menu should have a total of menus that pop out on click
or enter pressed.
Each menu item needs to be configurable for text or just an image.
A function system needs to work on an on-click which could be to a
webpage, or another flash application. Most links should open in
the central zone, and external links should state so, and then
redirect the whole site there (effectively closing the menu
Needs to be controlled via keyboard and/or mouse
Keyboard controls via arrow keys and the enter key
The first menu item should always be Top Left when a key is pressed
When navigating main menus take precedence so Down takes you to the
lower menus first.
Enter takes you inside a main menu, that is then navigated by the
Up and Down arrows.
Left or Right when a Menu is open will close it and move onto the
next main menu.
After the configurable timeout, all menus will close and next
keyboard stroke will return to the Top Left
Mouse controls should be as normal
A popup “advertisement” zone should also be implemented that works
on a database that displays small flash animations in the bottom
left of the screen.
Could be used as a reminder system
Minimum time between “advertisements” needs to be configurable
10 minute default
All configuration settings should be easily set in a file but the file is not to be accessible to the end user.
On completion of the project, all files used in the creation should be part of the package sent to us. We need to be able to view and modify the end product beyond the configuration files.
