Animated GIF Multiple Onload Slides Tutorial

We’re having a revisit of our inhouse Animated GIF creator PHP web application, again, to improve on its “unwieldy ways” as a tool to another web application using it from the standpoint of knowing all the animated GIF slide data ahead of time, and preparing the way for a user to easily rework that animated GIF (with our inhouse Animated GIF Creator web application), perhaps.

It’s unwieldy, currently, because we dynamically add textboxes containing slide data on the fly, but today’s improvements allow for a user defined “number of slides” to be helping flesh out those textboxes “ahead of the fly”, if you will …

Animated GIF Slide Component Replacing Tutorial

We’re getting into componentry today, “spare parts” if you will, behind the creation of Animated GIF images, used in yesterday’s Animated GIF Slide Component Knowledge Tutorial‘s PHP web application.

We left you yesterday, during its “phase two” animated GIF creation phase …

  • a resultant animated GIF HTML img element … now responding to the …
  • oncontextmenu event (ie. like a right click) … whereby the …
  • relevant applicable “still” was displayed in a new popup window … and today we flesh out the contents of that skeletal popup window webpage design of yesterday …
  • adding some HTML buttons …
    1. +90 degree rotation
    2. +270 degree rotation
    3. Remake Animated GIF

    … along with accompanying popup window webpage Javascript …

… to make all this new second phase animated GIF editing possible in today’s changed PHP tutorial_to_animated_gif.php inhouse animated GIF creator web application.

You can be pretty sure this first foray will need more nuance into the coming daysweeks (off the Animated GIF theme tomorrow, it being “International Holiday for the Animated GIF Weary … Day”)! We hope you stay with it!


Previous relevant Animated GIF Slide Component Knowledge Tutorial is shown below.

Animated GIF Slide Component Knowledge Tutorial

Animated GIF Slide Component Knowledge Tutorial

Yesterday’s Animated GIF SVG Quiz Automation Interaction Tutorial‘s …

  • animated GIF, using its duration, for effect, adding user interaction onmouseover logic for our SVG Quiz scenarios … led us to, today …
  • the more obvious generic step to add oncontextmenu (ie. right click) logic to extract the slide image of the animated GIF showing at the time of the right click

Now, our solution to getting this thing to happen, is to …

  • not extend out … but rather to …
  • extend up

… with how the phase one collection of slide image data meets the phase two creation of animated GIF form navigation logic. Up to today, its default modus operandi was that this HTML form had a …


target='_self'

… attribute implied in its make up, and this, to us, is like “extending out” where your phase one “web application” has effectively …

left the building

… so that the phase two “web application” can take up residency.

But the fact is, the target attribute can also point to _blank (new tab) or _top or “the name of an HTML iframe element”. We use that last idea, along with …

Initial new static HTML …
<?php echo ”

<iframe id=nolongerselfi name=nolongerselfi style=display:none; onload=getwhatwas(this);></iframe>

“; ?>
During the HTML form onsubmit event (function predothem) logic, decide …
<?php echo ”

var dodt=true;

function predothem() {
if (dodt) {
document.getElementById('myform').target=nolongerself('_self');
} else {
document.getElementById('ztitled').innerHTML+='<input name=\"nodt\" id=\"nodt\" value=\"y\" type=hidden></input>';
}
dothem();
}

function nolongerself(wasself) {
document.getElementById('nolongerselfi').style.position='absolute';
document.getElementById('nolongerselfi').style.top='0px';
document.getElementById('nolongerselfi').style.left='0px';
document.getElementById('nolongerselfi').style.width='100%';
document.getElementById('nolongerselfi').style.height='300%';
document.getElementById('nolongerselfi').style.zIndex='1234';
document.getElementById('nolongerselfi').style.display='block';
//document.getElementById('nolongerselfi').src='./tutorial_to_animated_gif.php';
return 'nolongerselfi';
}

“; ?>

… and if that variable dodt remains true (by you, the user, not clicking the “Delay(s)” span element), then the HTML form navigation result effectively slaps itself above (via that large CSS z-index property defined) and, though you (as the HTML form, of course … get with the plan!) do not see what’s below, does not mean that that image data in that “lower floor” is not available (because, surely, parents are allowed to live in the same building … just out of sight, but useful?!)

<?php echo ”

var lastcurslide=-1, curslide=1;

function smaybeact(oimg) {
if (lastcurslide != curslide) {
lastcurslide=curslide;
var woois=window.open('', '_blank', 'top=100,left=100,height=800,width=800');
woois.document.write('<html><head><title>Animated GIF ' + agurl + ' Slide ' + lastcurslide + '/' + totalsno + '</title></head><body><img title=\"' + 'Animated GIF ' + agurl + ' Slide ' + lastcurslide + '/' + totalsno + '\" src=\"' + parent.document.getElementById(('slideshow' + lastcurslide).replace(/^slideshow1$/g, 'slideshow')).value + '\"></img></body></html>');
woois.name='Animated GIF ' + agurl + ' Slide ' + lastcurslide + '/' + totalsno;
}
}

“; ?>

… as that animated GIF’s oncontextmenu new function, existant or not, via the new phase two applicable PHP …

<?php

$ntvals="-1";
$oncdt=' oncontextmenu=smaybeact(this); ';
if (isset($_GET['nodt'])) { $oncdt=''; }
if (isset($_POST['nodt'])) { $oncdt=''; }

Animated GIF SVG Quiz Automation Interaction Tutorial

Animated GIF SVG Quiz Automation Interaction Tutorial

Today, we wanted to combine yesterday’s …

… the reason this being interesting, is that if we send to the “second phase” PHP web application pass which creates the animated GIF …

  1. the number of slides …
    <?php

    $tvalsn="-1";
    $ttitled="";
    if (isset($_GET['tvalsn'])) { $tvalsn=(str_replace("+"," ",urldecode($_GET['tvalsn']))); $ttitled=''; }
    if (isset($_POST['tvalsn'])) { $tvalsn=(str_replace("+"," ",urldecode($_POST['tvalsn']))); $ttitled=''; }

    ?>
  2. an indication of whether there are 2 slides or 3 slides per original SVG+xml based image …
  3. a comma separated list of answers …

    $tvalsa="";
    $atitled="";
    $detsum="";
    $sumdet="";
    if (isset($_GET['tvalsa'])) { $detsum="<details><summary>Show ...</summary>"; $sumdet="</details>"; $tvalsa=(str_replace("+"," ",urldecode($_GET['tvalsa']))); $atitled='<input type=hidden id=tvalsa name=tvalsa value="' . $tvalsa . '"></input>'; }
    if (isset($_POST['tvalsa'])) { $detsum="<details><summary>Show ...</summary>"; $sumdet="</details>"; $tvalsa=(str_replace("+"," ",urldecode($_POST['tvalsa']))); $atitled='<input type=hidden id=tvalsa name=tvalsa value="' . $tvalsa . '"></input>'; }

    ?>

… we can use that “animated GIF duration” calculation to know, at any one point, which slide is showing, effectively giving “faux intelligence” enough to our operation, to the extent that we could, then, optionally, interactively ask for user entered answers to the SVG Quiz Questions asked (and keep track of a score for those “quiz interactives” out there).

And did you know, at least for non-mobile platforms, you can set the focus (on non-mobile platforms only, as there are the “keyboard getting in the way” issues we’re thankful for with mobile platforms which preclude any thoughts of a programmed [element].focus() operation) to one of these “contenteditable=true style elements”?

To usefully offer automation ideas for our Animated GIF Creator we need more flexibility regarding how the watermarks are presented. Get good with this, and this automation of Animated GIF creations could be quite productive. And so, in a similar line of thinking to yesterday’s Animated GIF SVG Quiz Argument Tutorial, today, we offer the user one new “get” titledown URL argument to work with a toggling Watermark Positioning arrangement, between the default top way and the new bottom way, with our input type=color Colour Picker we have going for the user to select a Watermark Colour. For the first time ever, we use …

… logic. This event is both harmless regarding any other implications, and useful for toggling logic …

The automation measures in yesterday’s Animated GIF Creation Transparency Tutorial get an “arguments consideration” (maybe a five minute one, or perhaps ten minutes for “the outraged”) to help out ideas for our aspirational readers and users out there, who we are always keen to motivate, this Animated GIF Creator project potentially linked to user productivity, at its best.

If we want to improve automation ideas for these Animated GIF creations we need to use (initially ? and & “get”) arguments up at the web browser address bar for our exploratory user to not only allow for definition of …

  • their hTTp style animated GIF slide content basis (in a “get” irefresh labelled optional argument) … but as of today, how about …
    1. new “get” dimensions labelled optional argument defines the output Animated GIF dimensions in terms of width,height … eg. 300,600
    2. new “get” title labelled optional argument defines the wording of the watermark style Animated GIF title (basis) … eg. My+Animated+GIF
    3. new “get” titlecolour labelled optional argument defines the colour of the watermark style Animated GIF title … eg. olive
    4. new “get” titlemode labelled optional argument defines the watermark style Animated GIF title mode … eg. All

    … and please do not forget an optional argument we’re always havingthat’s always been there …

  • the “get” delay labelled optional argument defining the delay between animated GIF slides … eg. 800

? That would complete some pictures out there, we’re hoping?!

Does this feel like a step sideways to you, “the regular reader”? We’d agree, and are a little surprised a revisit (to this project) shows this need, but there you are. Sometimes, revisits help clarify!

This means a changed (in large part to reorganize “argument related” PHP code to the top, now) PHP tutorial_to_animated_gif.php inhouse animated GIF creator web application can now handle

  • canvas

It’s affected two “avenues of effect” (or is this a book?!) with our Animated GIF Creator logic …

It might be you design an animated GIF chapter of slides and always want to follow it up with a “further reading” webpage you could present as a QR Code or Webpage Screenshot.

Anyway, at the “onblur” event Javascript function logic we intervened to end up with an image/png data URI substitute for the HtTp or hTtP URL the user enters to re-enter the normal animated GIF image definition workflow of the animated GIF creator …
