|Basic Page Components||Back TOC Next|
To insert basic components into the page right-click anywhere (not on an existing component) and then select from the options available under Insert. Some components will need more input, for example images will request a file to upload.
Any component can be edited, moved or removed at any time using the context-sensitive menu displayed when right-clicking on it. Any component can be moved and resized by drag-and-drop.
There are components that are depending on other components. Such components are inserted from the context menu of the master component.
There are two types of text elements, Headings and General Texts, which differ by their default appearance attributes. Headings will require some text at creation time. General Texts will be initially inserted empty or imported by uploading a text file.
Images can be added as independent elements or embedded in text elements. Independent images provide the following features:
FoxSet Studio supports Text Buttons and Image Buttons. Both types provides the following abilities:
Tables offer the following features:
Rectangles getting border and / or background style are intended to support the page graphical design.
Containers (Page Content) . Content of another page can be inserted within the current page as a container. The content, the border and the background are controlled in the source page; therefore future modification in the source page will be automatically propagated into the hosting page. The appearance of the included components is according to the defaults defined in the hosting page, however attributes set individually in the source page are kept.
Frames also allow inserting other page content within the current page. Distinctly from containers, frames are independent components on the host page, can have scrollbars and can be targeted by actions. If a page is designed to be displayed only within a frame of another page, you are supposed to set the Parent attribute:
If the Parent attribute is set and the direct link is accessed (from a search engine from example), the parent page will open instead and the requested page will be displayed within the biggest frame, if any, of the parent.
User Input elements allow capturing visitors' input and emailing it and / or sending it to another page (a customized page processing data or an acknowledgement page such as Thank You pages).
Date Elements will display the current date.
Macromedia Flash Animations can be placed onto the pages and controls (buttons, menu options, etc.) can bee interact with them (start, pause, rewind).
