Used Animate to re-purpose a Flash gadget ...

... why can't I get the Canvas.html5 / Canvas.js combo to appear on the webpage?

 

Here's the page incorporating the .swf:

www.flydutch.net

 

<div id="flash-header">
<object classid= blah, blah, blah</object>
<!--<![endif]-->
</object></div>

 

What's wrong w/this replacement code (instead of a <div>)?

 

<iframe src="FlyDutchPortfolio_Extended_HTML5 Canvas.html" width="465px" height="355px">
<script>
//Canvas JavaScript
var c = document.getElementById("FlyDutchPortfolio_Extended_HTML5 Canvas.js"); var ctx = c.getContext("2d"); </script></iframe>

 

P.S. am expecting it's operator error all the way (it's a given) ...

Show us the HTML code that was exported from Animate CC.  That code should work in a browser.  If it doesn't, then something is wrong with the Animate project.

I opened a Flash .swf in Animate & asked to convert to an HTML5 Canvas document ...

 

Three files were created:

*HTML5 Canvas.fla

*HTML5 Canvas.html

*HTML5 Canvas.js

 

Am unaware of any code separate from these files ...

The previous post contains what I thought was recomended (iFrame instead of a <div>):

 

<iframe src="FlyDutchPortfolio_Extended_HTML5 Canvas.html" width="465px" height="355px">
<script>
//Canvas JavaScript
var c = document.getElementById("FlyDutchPortfolio_Extended_HTML5 Canvas.js"); var ctx = c.getContext("2d"); </script></iframe>

 

That placed a block of nothing at the top of the page (same place as the original .swf) ...

Instead of the Flash-generated .swf, should I be running the .fla file through Animate?

This really isn't a question about using Dreamweaver.   This is a question for the Animate user-to-user community.  

https://community.adobe.com/t5/Animate/bd-p/animate

 

If you wish, I can move this discussion to that forum.

The problem that I am having relates to the operational functions of build an HTML page in Dreamweaver that is uploaded to a web server via Dreamweaver ...

 

Placing a re-purposed Flash .swf (re-purposed in Animate) into a web page seems to be a problem without a clear avenue of Animate > Dreamweaver functionality ...

 

So, to me, it is a question about using Dreamweaver - for page creation using various elements from Canvas HTML5 through CSS positioning/visibility ...

 

Thanks for listening, though ...

Animate is separate from Dreamweaver.  Get all your animation ducks in a row with Animate first.  If the exported HTML doesn't display anything in a browser, you're messing up in Animate.  DW cannot help you fix that.
