// CodeBrain's slider.class code is written protectively -- to make it
// easy to set up and get running. Demos and all the associated
// graphics are included, to get you rolling quickly.
// Other than the "Notice" parameter and a couple of image files,
// you can leave out any parameter and the applet will run.
// That is, "If in doubt, leave it out!" 
// You can make the applet as simple as you wish, without the
// clutter and confusion of a multitude of parameters -- and then
// gradually build upward into more complex renditions.
// Parameter names are as descriptive as we can make them without
// having them a mile long, and they ARE case sensitive, so take care.
// Keep image files to the smallest dimensions and file sizes
// possible. Large images backload the applet and slow it down.
// To get started, place the slider.class file and ALL files used by
// the applet in the SAME directory
// Check out the demos included, and gradually change parameters
// to get a feel for how the applet works.
// Good luck, and we hope you have a blast with CodeBrain's
// slider.class. It's a simple-to-use applet, but does a great job for
// slideshow presentations.
// Best regards,
// CodeBrain 


<param name="Notice" value="Applet by">
// Must be present, EXACTLY, or the applet will run, but return an error
// message indicating the notice is wrong or missing.

<PARAM NAME="KeyCode" VALUE="whatever_the_key_is">
// this applet, always quickly available at You may
// of course use the free version for evaluation purposes!
// If you have the FREE version...
// Enter FREE in the VALUE. For example:
// If you have the PRO version...
// Enter your key in the VALUE. For example:
// For those with the purchased version, keys are automatically made
// for you dynamically off the site in the Nova log-in
// area. You will also receive very clear, very explicit instructions
// via e-mail, each time you make a key in the log-in area.
// If you are unsure what the domain for the key is, use DOMAIN as
// the value in this parameter. For example:
// and it will tell you the domain name needed for the applet.

<param name="BackgroundColor" value="rrr,ggg,bbb">
// This sets the applet background color.
// Usual RGB format, values 0-255.
// Example: value = "255,0,0" would make the applet background red.

<param name="Direction" value="0">
// This sets the direction in which the applet will scroll the images.
// 0 = scroll from right to left
// 1 = scroll from left to right
// The default is right to left; leave out the parameter if you don't
// need it.

<param name="Speed" value="19">
// This is the speed of the applet scrolling. Smaller numbers produce 
// faster scrolling. A suggested range is probably 5-30 or so, but 
// feel free to experiment. Note that running too fast may cause
// skipping on some monitors, and running very slowly will tend to pro-
// duce a stepped, jerking motion. As a rule, the applet functions fine
// at the default speed; so you may normally leave this parameter out
// entirely.

<param name="SoundFile" value="">
// This is the sound file that will be triggered on a mouse-click. It
// must be in standard JAVA sound file format. Keep sound files as
// small as possible. If not using sound, leave this parameter out.

<param name="FrameThickness" value="5">
// This sets the thickness of the frame in pixels. The frame is optional
// and the default value for it is 5 pixels. If you don't wish to see
// the frame, set this value to 0. Note that the 'frame' occurs out-
// side what we call the 'border' (see BorderThickness below.)

<param name="FrameColor" value="rrr,ggg,bbb">
// This sets the frame color.
// Usual RGB format, values 0-255.
// Example: value = "0,0,255" would make the frame blue.

<param name="BorderThickness" value="5">
// This sets the thickness of the border around each image, in pixels. 
// The border is optional and the default value for it is 5 pixels.
// If you don't wish to see the border, set this value to 0. Note
// that the 'border' occurs inside what we call the 'frame'
// (see FrameThickness above.)

<param name="BorderColor" value="rrr,ggg,bbb">
// This sets the border color.
// Usual RGB format, values 0-255.
// Example: value = "0,255,0" would make the border green.

<param name="LinkMode" value="1">
// This sets whether the border, the frame, both, or nothing will change
// to the LinkColor (below) when the mouse passes over an image. The
// value settings are:
// 0 = frame & border (both)
// 1 = frame
// 2 = border
// 3 = neither
// Note that frame and border thicknesses must be set to suitable 
// values, or, of course, you won't see the link color changes.

<param name="LinkColor" value="rrr,ggg,bbb">
// This sets the link color.
// Usual RGB format, values 0-255.
// Example: value = "255,0,0" would make the link color red.

<param name="VerticalMode" value="2">
// This sets how images will be positioned, vertically, in the applet.
// The value settings are:
// 0 = top
// 1 = center
// 2 = bottom
// The default setting is to center the images, vertically.
// Note that images CAN be larger than the height of the applet.

<param name="Image1" value="image.jpg">
// This set of parameters sets the images to be used. Images may be 
// .gif, animated .gif, or .jpg formats. Keep image file sizes and
// dimensions as small as possible, of course, to keep down loading
// time and redrawing overhead. 
// Note that images DO NOT have to have similar dimensions. The applet
// readily accommodates images of varying widths and heights, and 
// interesting effects can be created using differing form factors. 
// For EACH IMAGE, change the number portion of the parameter. Numbers
// should be successive, starting at 1, with no skips in the number
// sequence. For example:
// <param name="Image1" value="horse.jpg">
// <param name="Image2" value="earth.jpg">
// <param name="Image3" value="phone.jpg">
// Have a look at the included demos if you need additional examples.

<param name="Link1" value="">
// This would be the link associated with a given image, following the
// same numbering scheme as in the ImageX parameter above -- that is,
// Link1 would be the link associated with Image1, Link2 associates
// with Image2, etc.
// If you do NOT want an image linked -- leave out the tag. Skips in 
// the number sequence of the LinkX parameter are permitted.
// Note that if an ImageX has no link associated, of course there will
// be no link box that follows that image.

<param name="Target1" value="_new">
// This is the target frame or window that the corresponding image will
// link to. Again, same numbering scheme as with images. It IS okay to
// skip numbers in TargetX. If you don't specify a TargetX, the default
// is _top -- that is, same window.
// Just so you don't have to go look it up... TargetX takes the
// same general values that you use in HTML. Values with an underscore
// usually refer to the browser itself, thus:
// _new - opens a new window
// _blank - also a new window
// _self - loads in the same frame
// _top - opens in the same window
// When using a framed page layout, the value for TargetX would be the
// name of the frame where you want the linked page to appear; i.e.,
// main, contents, george -- whatever name you've given the frame. 


That's it, that's all, go to it!
