    Vitalize! 4

    Welcome to the Vitalize! 4 forum !

    Finally, Vitalize! 4 is available. This version of Vitalize! has required a considerable amount of work, so please forgive us for the delay...

    To download it :

    - if you use Internet Explorer, just open this page :

    http://www.clickteam.com/vitalize4/testv4.html

    - if you use FireFox or Netscape 7+, open the this page and click the Install Vitalize! button.

    http://www.clickteam.com/vitalize4/download.html

    - otherwise open the page above, click the link to download the installer and run it.

    Comments:

    - the test page shows you how to use the new scripting features of Vitalize! 4.

    - Vitalize! 4 can play CCN files created with MMF2, TGF2, MMF1, TGF1, C&C.

    - On Windows Vista if you play CCN files creates with MMF1 or TGF1, Windows displays a message "Vitalize! is trying to run an external program". You can safely click the "do not show this message again" option and click the OK button. This message is not displayed when you play CCN files created with MMF2 or TGF2.

    - If you want to use the new features of Vitalize! 4, you have to use the build 247 of MMF2. These features are detailed below.


    New Vitalize! features in the build #247

    - Application properties : the format of the preview image is no longer limited to BMP (it can be a JPEG file for example).

    - Application properties : new "Do not run from stand-alone applications" option in the Application Runtime properties. If you select this option, the CCN file won't be loadable by a stand-alone application. This option is ignored if you build a stand-alone application. You must select this option if you want to use the 2 options below :

    - Application properties : new "Enable Script" option. If this option is selected you can use the methods and properties of Vitalize! ActiveX control and plugin to control the application and/or get/set global values and strings. More info in the Vitalize! post.

    - Application properties : new "Run only from (URL)" option : allows you to define a list of URLs from which your CCN file can be run. I.e. the CCN file must be on one of the servers in the list otherwise it won't run. Note: you can also run the CCN file as local file on the machine where it has been built, but not on others.

    - Vitalize! Plugin object : new functions to call a Javascript function from the application :

    + Reset parameter list => removes all the parameters from the current list
    + Add integer parameter => adds an integer parameter to the list
    + Add float parameter => adds a float parameter to the list
    + Add string parameter => adds a string parameter to the list
    + Call function => calls a Javascript function with the specified parameters
    + On error => new condition, true when Call Function didn't work
    + Get Integer/Float/String result => return the return value of the Javascript function

    The build #247 also allows to save smaller CCN files (for some reason the maximum compression mode was not working in previous builds).

    Thank you for reading.

    Yves.

    Re: Vitalize! 4 (pre-release version)

    Wow, fantastic! I can't quite believe my luck in seeing this first as I was just thinking about Vitalize.... came here to ask a question and 'oh V4! =)'

    I will be trying this out Thanks a lot!

    EDIT: Couple of quick questions

    1) If I select the 'Do not run from stand alone applications' then the few 'wizards' I've written for my latest product and compiled as CCN files wont be executable on their own; it's only possible when called through my application? Does this stop anyone with a copy of MMF2 creating an app to call it itself however?

    2) Application properties : new "Run only from (URL)"

    That sounds fantastic if I'm understanding this correctly as it means I can create an application, yet it doesn't matter if it's stolen or whatever as their url wont match my site - henceforth it cannot be executed.

    Ship this asap! =D Some very excitable new features here that I plan on using Thanks again!

    EDIT 2: Is the V4 site getting an update to match your current design as well?

    Re: Vitalize! 4 (pre-release version)

    1. The "do not run from stand-alone apps" option saves CCN files in a different format, not supported by the MMF2 runtime. CCN files built with this option cannot be loaded by EXE files. So if someone creates a MMF2 stand-alone application and tries to use your CCN file as sub-application, that won't work. Is this more clear?

    2. Yes, the "run only from (url)" option prevents your CCN file from being copied to another site. However someone could still put a link to your file on your server in their html pages (there are probably html/php/javascript solutions to avoid this though).

    Re: Vitalize! 4 (pre-release version)

    1. Ah I see so that prevents even me from doing so? Got ya; sorry I was a little confused on that one. It just means people cant download apps from the web (by entering their url path to the address bar for example) and running them locally.

    2) Can disable hotlinking in various ways

    Thanks

    I'm not sure if I see what you means. People can run your application locally with a browser, even if you select the "do not run from stand-alone app" option. This option just prevents people from loading your CCN file in a sub-application object in a stand-alone application.

    Re: Vitalize! 4 (pre-release version)

    Sorry - what I meant was downloading them direct to your hard drive and storing them locally; like say in a folder or on a USB stick and then running them as .exe files or through other mmf apps.

    The Javascript support alone is amazing. This is going to make online (as in they talk to the server's PHP files through JS) so easy for me to make! =D I love you Clickteam! :blush:
