How to use pictures and sounds downloaded from the Internet

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

When you use the control on a web page it is necessary to load pictures, animations and sounds at run-time from an Internet site: for this purpose the following properties can accept HTTP URLs:

Picture, PictureMouseOver, PicturePressed, PictureDisabled, PictureCustom, Texture.Filepath, SoundDown, SoundUp, SoundMouseOver and SoundMouseOut.

If you need to download from an FTP URL, which usually requires username and password, you can use the following methods:

SetAnimFromNet , SetPictureFromNet and SetSoundFromNet.

Keep in mind that BMP, AVI and WAV are uncompressed formats. We have developed a general purpose proprietary format to speed up transfers of these types of binaries.  See AMZ.
