Demo works in IE9 for me

HI,

Glad to know that it does. I didnt test it on IE. Thats great.

Cheers! Pushkar

It’s a neat idea, but think it would make more sense, if the message was scrolled LED style ON the Zeppelin and not as a “thought bubble” or cloud above it. If you update this to be just the Zeppelin (no cloud) and a more real-world simulation with the message scrolling in LED format, I’d be happy to buy this. Nice work, but for now the Zeppelin is superfluous.

HI,

Thanks for your interest. Interesting comments :) Will look into it.

Cheers! Pushkar

Hello Pushkar,

I have a problem with FireFox. I am using the latest version 19.0.2. The page loads but I can not see the Zeppelin. I have also asked other FF users to test but without success. Even if I try your original “Zeppelin-Demo.php” it does not work.

It works fine under Chrome and IE9 32 and 64 bit.

Any ideas?

Cheers Maxplay

Sure you can – I will send you my Email address via your profile Email

Great product and even greater support – Thanks :-)

Hello! can change Zeppelin image? (to another image) is possible?

You indicate javascript and HTML5, but then you mention only PHP version. Do you include javascript for this zeppelin? I hope so, as we are using solely html for special purpose. Thank you kindly.

:( No error messages. Tried and tried to generate error. I’ll send both links: Working demo, and non-working demo…. Thanks, pushkarparanjpe!

You got me thinking :) I couldn’t generate any errors, so I inspected more closely, and found that my Firefox rendering of the canvas failed, so it gave a height of 8 pixels. So I changed this in the zeppelin.js file, one line #149 From this: c.canvas.height = $(window).height().... To this: c.canvas.height = 500; Because Mozilla says a single positive integer works, otherwise you have to use the var h = element.clientHeight;

Hope that helps for a little update to your zeppelin.js file, for others. It is a fun utility. I changed images and other items to make it an announcement system :) Thanks for a cool fun tool! :)

Glad you figured it out. Thank you for the kind comments and suggestions
