These are the basic technical specs any OpenSocial gadget on Hyves needs to support.
Views & Sizes
When you develop a gadget take into account that both of the 2 views may be used by a Hyver. A gadget will always be installed on the profile page of the Hyver and will also have a Canvas view in which a larger version of the gadget can be displayed
The content of each view can be the same (based on the smallest) but we suggest to use the difference in size for your benefit.
Width: max 380px
Height: max 500px
Width: max 950px
Height: max 1000px
The modulePrefs is the information about the rest of the gadget-XML. This declaration looks like this:
<ModulePrefs title='Hello world example' summary='' description='' author='' author_email='' thumbnail='' screenshot='' height='360'>
and consists of the following parameters:
- title (<256 characters)
- the summary (<256 characters)
- description (50-750 characters)
- author name
- author e-mail (needs to be the email address linked to your Hyves account)
- screenshot (PNG, GIF, JPG - Size: based on Profile-view - max 50kb)
- thumbnail(PNG, GIF, JPG - Size: 120x60px - max 15kb)
With an embedded Flash Movie (.swf) you need to specify a wmode of 'transparent' or 'opaque' because the Hyves main menu will have to overlap the Flash Movie. This does not work correctly when wmode is set to 'window'. This is because Flash is always placed on top.
