Class s7sdk.set.SetIndicator

The SetIndicator component provides the ability to show a series of 'page' indicators. Each indicator represents a 'page' of an image set and works with the Swatches component to get the # of pages in a set as well as the current selected page.

The component can be configured to automatically hide its indicators if number of pages exceeds certain limits set by autohide modifier.

It is possible to use two different rendering modes, where the compnent either puts visual indicators which are exactly the same for all pages, or renders page number. This is controlled with the mode modifier.

Customizing Behavior Using Modifiers

Modifiers change SetIndicator default behavior. They are passed to the component by the ParameterManager instance specified in the constructor.

The following modifiers are supported:

autohide0|1[,limit]Configures auto-hide behavior depending on number of pages and run-time component size. 0 turns the auto-hide off. 1 enables the auto-hide. The component will hide its dots if at least one of the following conditions will turn true: (a) the row with dots will become wider than the run-time component width or (b) number of pages set for this component exceeds the limit configured by limit parameter. Setting limit to -1 disables the second auto-hide condition.0,-1
modenumeric|dottedConfigures the rendering style of the set indicator. When set to dotted the component should render identical indicators for all pages. When set to numeric it will put a 1-based page number inside each indicator element. numeric operation mode is not supported on devices capable of touch input, the component will always use dotted on such devices.dotted

Defining the Appearance using CSS

You can define the appearance of the SetIndicator component using CSS rules. All HTML5 Viewer SDK components use class selectors for styling. You can define the appearance of the SetIndicator component using the .s7setindicator class selector. The styles associated with this class selector are applied to all instances of the SetIndicator component. You can style particular instances by prefixing the class rule with the instance #id. For example, styling rules for #myComp.s7setindicator are applied only to the particular SetIndicator instance.

The styling of the sub-elements using class selectors like .s7dot for example, must be specified in the form of the descendant class selectors, that is, they must follow the main class selector separated by a space, such as .s7setindicator .s7dot. For more information on component styling see the HTML5 Viewer SDK User Guide and the default styles section.

CSS ClassAttribute SelectorDescription
.s7setindicatormode=[numeric|dotted]Represents the main body of the SetIndicator component. The mode attribute is set based on the value of mode modifier.
.s7setindicator .s7dotstate=[selected|unselected]Defines the appearance of the page indicators (dots).
.s7tooltip(None)A global class selector that defines appearance for the tooltips. To disable tooltips set the display style to none.

Localizable Symbols

The SetIndicator also supports text symbols that you can localize either in a preset or in the viewer page though the mechanisms provided by the ParameterManager. For more information on localization consult the ParameterManager API documentation and HTML5 Viewers SDK User Guide.

SetIndicator.TOOLTIPDefine a localized tooltip of SetIndicator component. The default value is an empty string.

Example Code

This example demonstrates how to use the SetIndicator component in a simple viewer. In this example a Container object, a ZoomView object, a Swatches object, and a SetIndicator object are created. When a user clicks the left or right arrow buttons on the swatches object, the swatch images will scroll left or right to show the previous or next 3 swatches in the currently loaded swatch set. Each time the swatches are scrolled, the SetIndicator object will update to give the user a visual indication of which swatches they are currently viewing within the set. The code below does the following:

  1. The Scene7 HTML5 SDK is linked to the page and the required s7sdk components are included in the document head.
  2. CSS Styles are defined in the document head to control the appearance of the SDK components.
  3. A setPages flag variable is defined. This will be checked by the onSwatchSelected() event handler when a user clicks to scroll the swatches. The purpose of this flag is to cause the event handler to update the SetIndicator object with the number of pages in the swatch set once, when the first SWATCH_SELECTED_EVENT is fired by the Swatches object, but not again for subsequent swatch selections.
  4. The s7sdk.Util.init() method is called to initialize the SDK.
  5. A ParameterManager object is created to handle component modifiers for the viewer.
  6. An initViewer() function is defined. This function initializes several modifiers (hard coded for example purposes), then creates the component objects required for this simple example. The selectSwatch() function is called on the Swatches object to designate which swatch the viewer should display first. The initViewer() function also adds event listeners that designate functions to handle relevant component events (which might be dispatched by the components as a result of user interactions, changes in a component's state, etc.).
  7. Handler functions are defined to respond to the component event listeners added in the initViewer() function.
  8. An event listener is added to the ParameterManager object that designates the initViewer() function as the handler to call when the Scene7 SDK is loaded and ready.
  9. Finally, the init() method is called on the ParameterManager object to start the viewer.

Method Detail
addEventListener(type, handler, useCapture)
Adds an event listener to the instance of the SetIndicator component. The handler function receives a DOM event object of type Event. The object contains a property s7event, which references the associated custom event object, for example s7sdk.event.SwatchEvent.SWATCH_PAGE_CHANGE.

The events supported by the component are:

  • s7sdk.event.SwatchEvent.SWATCH_PAGE_CHANGE - Dispatched when the current indicator has changed because of user click or an API call. The event is not dispatched on touch devices when user taps on the indicator. s7sdk.event.SwatchEvent
  • Parameters:
    {String} type
    Event name, for example s7sdk.event.SwatchEvent.SWATCH_PAGE_CHANGE.
    {Function} handler
    Function to be called when the event gets dispatched.
    {Boolean} useCapture
    Register capture phase.

    Dispose is used to remove itself and all sub-elements from the DOM

    {Number} the inner height of the component, in pixels.

    {Number} getSelectedPage()
