AutoPlay Menu Designer >> Plug-ins

1. Plug-ins and their purpose

A plug-in is a visual component that extends the functionality of your menu with new abilities. For example, you can create a slide show with beautiful transition effects between slides and various degrees of interactivity.
Plug-ins are distributed in plug-in packs. Each plug-in pack contains several visual plug-ins. Plug-in packs are installed along with the program.



2. How to add a plug-in object to a page

To use the plug-in, follow these steps:

1. Select the plug-in icon in the Tools panel

2. In the drop-down menu, select the plug-in name and click on the page to add the plug-in.

This opens the dialog with the plug-in settings. Later you can open it with a double-click.

Each plug-in contains a set of commands that you can execute. For example, the Slide Show plug-in have commands such as Start Slide Show and Stop Slide Show.



3. Overview of plug-in packs and their content

"Image Preview" Plug-in

The Image Preview plug-in enables you to embed the image preview capability to your menu. Then it's possible to preview photos full size or full screen. Left-click the image to view full size or right-click to view full screen.

The plug-in can be used to create a photo album, presentation or a product catalog on CD with the ability to preview photos either full size or full screen in a separate window.

"Slide show" Plug-in

The Slide Show plug-in lets you embed the slide show capability to the menu. Once embedded, photos can be viewed as a slideshow with beautiful transition effects between images. There are several interactive slideshow modes available, for example:

  • The non-interactive mode lets you view images as a standard slideshow that plays on startup automatically.
  • The interactive mode with the control of Play/Stop actions lets you start the slideshow with a click on the Play button and stop with another click.
  • The interactive mode with the control of Play/Stop/Forward/Back actions lets you play, pause, stop, rewind the slideshow by clicking the playback control buttons.

    The Slide Show plug-in can help you create a photo album, product catalog or presentation with the ability to preview photos as a slideshow with various degrees of interactivity. For example, you can create a business presentation with the playback control buttons to switch between the slides.

    "Thumbnails slider" Plug-in

    The Thumbnails slider plug-in lets you display images as a thumbnail list and open them full size with a click(or double-click). There are two modes available : Horizontal and Vertical. Thumbnails can be arranged into several adjacent columns/rows. The content of the "Thumbnails slider" can be synchronized with the "Image Preview" plugin or with the "Slide show" plugin.

    The plug-in is useful for creating a professional photo album, presentation or product catalog where images can be previewed in a separate window with a double-click.
