hi,

i wrote a module, that adds a flash file to the page using swfobject.js.
now i have a tab in the cms, where i can fill the required data. in the module folder, i also have a template file, like:

<script>
swfobject($FlashUrl, $Container, $Width, $Height);
</script>


$FlashUrl, $Container etz. are the variables i enter in cms.

how do i get this code snippet into my page, filled with the variables from the tab?

thanks a lot!

Hi,

did you add the database fields to the module code? E.g.

static $db = array(
      "FlashUrl" => "Text",
      "Container" => "Varchar(255)",
      "Width" => "Int",
      "Height" => "Int"
);

If you have that and you added the CMS fields the variables should be available in your template file as in your code snippet.

Cheers!
Anatol

hi anatol,

thanks for the answer... but i'm trying to do it modular, so nobody has to edit the page types...

just like a widget, when you just type: $Sidebar, and the code is "just there".

any idea on that? - if it's possible anyway...

thanks,
marcin
