MC Altair v0.7
This version isn't really a feature upgrade, it's more of a backend update. However there is one significant change—I have redesigned the coordinate system for placing elements within the player. This affects the way the player looks when it is resized or displayed in fullscreen mode. All coordinates now use the same reference point—the top left corner of the player (previously, control panel elements used the top left corner of the CP).
There are two implications:
- If you have resized the player, and particularly if you have repositioned elements within the player, you may need to change some of the variable values. This should only affect a very small number of users—most of you should simply find that the player looks better when resized.
- Fullscreen mode now always displays a small control panel at the bottom of the screen, independent of any other CP settings. In future this will be configurable as well, so you can have separate settings for normal and fullscreen mode.
|Variable Name||Possible Values||Default||Description|
|playerAutoResize||on, off||on||This replaces the deprecated playerResizeElements variable. When enabled, the player will automatically resize and/or reposition elements when resizing occurs. This only applies to element attributes that have not been defined; so for example, you could specify a fixed position for the play button but all other elements will be auto-resized.|
|tooltipTextColor||[Hex color]||000000||Tooltip text color|
|tooltipBackgroundColor||[Hex color]||CCCCCC||Tooltip background color|
Player: Improved tooltip readability. Added right-click menu item to toggle fullscreen mode.
Setup tool: The preview window now resizes large previews to fit the available space. Updated templates.
