Autodesk;

I want to have the "Render This Link "button on my website; so that when people visit my website they can just click on it and the DWF links will be rendered. Can this be done and if so how do I do it?

I am not sure what you are asking. If you are in control of you web site,
why not just create a page that has the links replaced with thumbnails
rendered by Autodesk Freewheel? If you want users to have this option, you
could create a second page and have a link to that page. My only guess is
that you want users to have the option but don't want the hassle of
maintaining the two pages and keeping them in sync. Am I right?

I'm in control of my web site.

I recently updated my web site to include this "Render This Link" icon that has a hyperlink to your web site which explains how to add it to your favorite list.

I want the user to have the option to convert them if they want to. I didn't want to create another page with the links replaced with thumbnails. I want the links as is and have an option for the user to convert them directly from within my web site if possible. With out them going to the link I recently created and then they have to add this java script to their favorite list. Is this possible?

That is exactly what I would like to have for my web site.
Could you send me the code for that java script bookmark?
Thanks for the help.

Are you satisfied with this software as a service Autodesk has devised?

I would be if I could figure out how to get it to work on my website like they have done. I tried to use the source code from their sample webpage they provided me; but was unable to figure out how to apply it on my web site. I'm not an expert at web designing and I will have to get my friend (who is an expert at web design) over to help me figure it out.

Render this link is a bookmarklet (a bookmarklet is a bookmark with
JavaScript) that lets users render any DWF link. To use this, users must add
the Render-This-Link bookmarklet and the click on it. I suspect this is not
what you want to do. I assume you simply want to use the Freewheel web
service to render your DWF files. This is easy to do, but does not use
Render-This-Link.

The next question is do you want your web page to use the interactive
Freewheel or would you like Freewheel to render you a static image.

For the interactive Freewheel, simply add the following HTML to your page



If you simply want a static image, simple add the flowing HTML to your page

http://freewheel.autodesk.com/DWFImage.aspx?dwf=http://freewheel.autodesk.com/sample/Hotel5.dwf&height=400&width=350

You only need to set the URL to your DWF along with height and width values
to fit your site.

Hope this helps,

Ben

You need to submit this search term to google...

are bookmarklets secure?
