HomeViewer Applet

Author: Graham Bowden, SpringBoard Solutions Limited

This applet displays a series of images, scaled to the space provided. It retains the original proportions of the picture. The images can either be named - explicitly named in the parameters or can use a prefix followed by a number (or in fact both). If named, they can use any extension and be any type supported by Java Applet images (jpg or gif). If unnamed, they must have the exteneion specified by the suffix parameter. If no suffix parameter then they must be "jpg"s. Have a look at some examples.

General Parameters
