Flash / Add to Favourites / .swf
We are currently developing a website for a client who requires an ' Add to Favourites ' text button to be placed at the top of every page on his website.
What we would like to be created using Adobe Flash by an expert flash programmer is an independent .swf file that when activated does the following :
1 ) Detects what type of browser that the visitor is using. i.e. : Safari, Firefox, Opera, Chrome or Internet Explorer
2 ) Performs the correct action for each relevant browser type ( according to the type of browser that the visitor is using ) by adding the current page as a bookmark to their favourites.
( It must be emphasised, that because different browsers have different keyboard shortcuts to add a webpage as a bookmark to the favourites, then this must be taken into recognised by the .swf and the correct shortcut must be used according to the browser type )
3 ) After this 'Add to Favourites' action has been completed, then the words " The NZSANC website has now been added as a bookmark to your favourites " must fade in ' lightbox style ', hold for five seconds and then disappear.
( By ' lightbox style ' we mean that the entire browser window must dim slightly and then the words must appear in the vertical and horizontal centre of the browser window itself. When a user clicks on any part of the browser window that has been dimmed, then the whole message must disappear and return to the normal website feud in the web page. )
It is important that the final .swf is completely independent and when activated by a user clicking on a button linked to this file, that the action itself happens promptly and reliably.
It is also important that we are supplied with a working .swf and the final .fla file and also some clear instructions for how we could later edit the words in the text that appears using flash.
The font itself should not be too large ( 14 or 16 point size ) and should be in a universal type font like Arial.
NOTE : When you reply to this post please do not just send a standard reply with a list of 50 websites that you have designed in the past. This clearly shows that you have not read this post properly and looking at these sorts of examples does not help us in any way to decide whether you are the right person for this job.
If you want to show us that you are the right person for this job, the best way to do this is to create a working sample of the countdown clock itself. Once we can see this, we can clearly see that you are the person we should choose for this work.
We look forward very much to hearing from professional flash programmers who can quickly and easily complete this work.
