No photo gallery? Worth knowing about technology and program
If your operating system doesn’t build the photo gallery, but instead displays a warning that restricts the display of active content, allow the blocked risk. The navigation, the selection menus of the photo gallery as well as the control of the gallery pages are completely written in javascript, which triggers the browser to display this warning. Furthermore, since version 3.0 the entire screen is designed in container technology with a maximum of 5 areas, which are set visible or kept hidden depending on the screen width. Same width also determines how many shots can be shown in a row and automatically adjusts to it when you refresh the screen, similar to your Windows Explorer. Due to the variable structure of the gallery, unfortunately, no headings can be given any longer, which area will be displayed next. The photo gallery itself as one on the 5 subsections is displayed with dynpro subscreen technology, means in the screen encircled container 2 other containers are connected in the top left position. One of these sub-container shows as transparent background image the 03-1010 in Quittelsdorf; the other container contains the text. The wallpaper in the background is fixed with 100% x-axis and 100% y-axis and 4000 pixels, the text container calculates its depth itself. Depending to your screen configuration, one container is displayed deeper than the other, so there it at the bottom an overpowering beyond the edge of one of the containers. In normal cases the wallpaper should finish deeper than the text.
