JC Play List XML Description

Overview | Properties | Methods | Events | XML

The JC Play List component can create the list based on a simple XML that has the following structure:
  • the main XML node is called <data> and contains the list of nodes corresponding to the list of items
  • the <item> nodes are the XML nodes on which the items from the list are built. Each <item> node contains several child nodes that will represent the properties of a specific node: <content>, <title>,<description>, <thumbnail> and <info>. At least one of these nodes should be specified.
  • <content> - this node holds the path and file name of the content that will be loaded in the target viewer object. This content could be an image (.jpg, .png, .gif), a Flash clip (.swf) or an audio/video content (.mp3, .flv, .mov) that can be played by the Flash player. This content will get loaded into the target viewer - a simple loadercomponent or an audio/video player component.
  • <title> - this the title of the item. The title is displayed in a text field inside the item, if the skin allows it.
  • <description> - this represents extra information on the item and it is also displayed in the corresponding text field if the skin allows it.
  • <thumbnail> - the path and filename of a thumbnail image that will be displayed in the items, if the skin allows it.
  • <info> - this is also some extra information on the content, for example the time duration for the audio or video content.

    • We recommend that the <content> node is always specified so there won't be problems with the target viewer objects that would have to load the associated content.

      Example XML data:

            <title>Picture 01</title>
            <description>This is a description text for picture nr 01</description>
            <title>Picture 02</title>
            <description>This is a description text for picture nr 02</description>
            <title>Picture 03</title>
            <description>This is a description text for picture nr 03</description>
