Video: Creating a Single Expandable Ad from Template

You can create a Single Expandable ad when you want to create an expandable ad using only one Flash file. This format contains only one ad file, a default image and multiple panels. This is useful for example, when you want your video to continue running after the banner expands. If you have one panel, you should use the Single Expandable format.

This format works with the SingleExpandable component. For more API information, see SingleExpandable API AS2 or SingleExpandable API AS3.

Procedure

  1. From the opening screen, click New from Template, then from the drop-down list select Single Expandable.
  2. In the Name field, enter a unique name for your ad.
  3. In the Ad Folder field, search for the name of the folder where you want all of your ad's assets to be saved.
  4. Select the Create a new folder for this ad checkbox, if you want to create a new folder under the selected folder. The new folder’s name will be the same as the ad’s name entered in Ad Name.
  5. Select the ActionScript version.
  6. Select your Default Image. Adding a default image is a mandatory step in the ad creation process. 
  7. From the Size drop-down list, select a predefined banner size, or enter a custom banner size in the respective width and height boxes.
  8. In the Ad File area,
    Select the New radio button if you want to create a new file, then enter the name of the FLA file.
    OR
    Select the Existing FLA radio button, if you want to use an existing file then click Browse and select the FLA file.
  9. In the Dimensions area, define the ad's dimensions and the Flash component as follows:
  10. To use predefined values, select the Common option.
  11. From the Banner Size drop-down list, select a predefined value to define the size of the banner asset.
  12. From the Expandable Directions drop-down list, select a predefined value to define how the component will expand in association with the banner asset.

    Note: The values of the expansion are dynamic according to the size of the banner, therefore some of the options will not be available.

  13. From the Panel Size drop-down list, select the size of the panel asset.

    Note: The values of the panel are dynamic according to the size of the banner. For example, if you select a full banner (468x60) you will only be able to select a panel size of 468x300.

  14. To customize the dimension select the Custom option.
    • In the Banner Size W and H fields, enter the width and height of the banner asset.
    • In the Expanded Size W and H fields, enter the width and height of the SingleExpandable component when in its expanded state.
  15. Click Create.
    You can now start customizing your ad.
    All you have to do is add the following code:
    AS2
  • In the Actions window, register to the EBPageEvent.PAGE_LOAD.

EB.addEventListener(EBPageEvent.PAGE_LOAD, onPageLoad);

  • Upload the ad content from outside your ad (a rich banner SWF, video, etc.) with the following code:

function onPageLoad(event):void{

//Load your content here

;
