ActionScript 2.0 :: Adding Thumbnails - Get The Width Of Each Thumbnail?

Aug 11, 2006

I have built a thumbnail gallery based on the tutorial on this site. It works great, but I'm having trouble with my thumbnails loading in order.I am calling images from an xml file, and placing them in a horizontal scrollbar. All of my thumbnails are different widths. Therefore, I need to be able to get the width of each thumbnail to position it in relation to the one before it and so on. Because of this, I'm using onLoadInit to position the images. Now, this creates a random horizontal order, based on how fast they load on the user's computer, not on their order in the xml file. I would use onLoadStart or onLoadComplete, as this would call them in that order, but the width is not available at this point in the loading, so they pile on top of each other.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Thumbnails Tutorial Adjustment For Thumb Width

Dec 18, 2007

I'm wondering if there is a way to tweak the tutorial for the thumbnails slider (link below) to allow for thumbnails of various widths: [URL] Currently the script creates the spacing between the thumbs by taking the width of the first thumbnail loaded and adding a value of 5 to it. However, in my instance the first thumb is the widest, so this creates odd spacing (This is for a product selector that runs from largest thumb to smallest).

ActionScript 2.0 :: Adding A Row To A Dynamic Thumbnail Grid

Jan 3, 2008

I'm trying to add a new row to dynamically created thumbnail grid. So far I've copied and edited a BrainGiants PhotoDrop menu script and managed to add an new row there with a nested for loop, but the thumbnails on the new row won't show right. There's just one thumb showing, I guess the rest of the thumbs are beneath the one showing..I'm messing up the for loop somehow, but can't get a hold of it.. I know all the thumbs load fine cus I've tried to load them to just one row and all of them showed up properly.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Kirupa'a Adding Thumbnails?

Jul 6, 2008

i have been able to customize this tutorial for my needs but i am still having one problem with the thumbnails. Unlike in the tutorial i have thumbnail that are two different sizes. most of them are 100 pixals wide but some are 75 and when they are different sizes like that it screws it up...they overlap or leave big gaps between thumbs.

below you can find the code i am using. the line of code that places the thumbs in there position is

target_mc._x = hit_left._x+(target_mc._width+5)*k;

i was able to stop the thumbs from over laping by replacing target_mc._width with 100 but that doesnt fix the big gaps between the images that are 75 wide.

function loadXML(loaded) {
if (loaded) {
xmlNode = this.firstChild;

IDE :: Adding Thumbnails - Moving The Scroller?

Mar 19, 2009

I am using the Kirupa gallery with thumbnail scroller - which is a FANTASTIC gallery system!

I want to move the scroller but when its moved further right...the scroller stops working. I can move it up and down on the stage, but once it goes a certain distance to the right the thumbnails do not load.

I also shortened the mask to about 160 px so it only shows 3 thumbnails of my pictures.

Here is a link to my FLA file: [URL]

How can I get this to work? Why wont the thumbnails load once the scroller moves a bit further to the right!

ActionScript 2.0 :: Adding Thumbnails Tutorial - Position The Thumbs?

Feb 11, 2006

There is this great tutorial here on kirupa where you add thumbnails to a XMLNow, everything works fine with horizontal pictures, but when i add vertical images the thumbs positions gets messed up. now, what i want to do is when it loads the thumbnails it should get the width of the previous thumbnail and position the next thumbnail right after it plus 5 pixels, then everything should work nicely. (I've already fixed how the big image gets positioned with horizontal/vertical images,If someone can point me in to right direction where the positioning of the thumbs are being made, then maybe i can fix it myself.

target_mc._x = hit_left._x+(eval("thumbnail_mc.t"+k)._width+5)*k;

ActionScript 2.0 :: XML Adding Thumbnails Tut - Limiting Scroll Boundaries?

Sep 14, 2006

I've been working on Kirupa's adding thumbnails to the XML photo gallery. I've managed to change the scroller to one that is vertical and reposition it to where I wanted it and everything works fine. urrently the code accounts for when the mouse moves (on the horizontal) to the left or right of the thumbnail container to stop scrolling. However when the mouse moves up and down to scroll (on the vertical) it continues to scroll even though the mouse has moved outside the container area. I'd like for it to only scroll when the mouse is within the 30 pixel - hit_left/right boudaries.

Here's the code, as you can see the changes have been very little from the original.

This seems like it should be part of the "Adding Thumbnails" - the large images are align to the left when they load. So when you have landscape and portrait orientation images, they should horizontally align to center, not to the left.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Adding Rollover Effects To Dynamically Created Thumbnails?

Aug 15, 2009

ive built it based off of an example we made in class last year that i had lying around..

as you can see here everything works fine.

The only problem is I want to add some roll over effects to the thumbnail but im not sure how to go about this as they are all dynamically added to the stage..

The way I tried was adding an event listener to each thumb via the function that adds the thumbs to the stage (see the "createThumbs()" function below). The event listener works fine and calls to the function i assigned to it ("thumbRoll") but im not sure what to put in this function to effect the thumb that is moused over as im unable to access "btn_thumb" from "thumbRoll".

ps. sorry if the code is a bit messy, bit of an experiment for me to get everything working..

ActionScript Code:
//imports go here
import flash.display.*;

ActionScript 2.0 :: Adding Border Around Thumbnails In Photo Slideshow Using XML And Flash

Nov 6, 2006

I have been using the tutorial on the Photo Slideshow Using XML and Flash, and think it is fantastic. It is really clear and easy to follow. However I have encoutered three things with it. Firstly I would love to be able to add a border around each thumbnail accross the bottom, that would change color when the user rolls over the thumbnail.I would also like to be able to highlight which thumbnail is currently being shown as the top image.The third issue I have had is when a user moves the mouse to the right of the first image, it scrolls about 5 pixels to the right even though there is no other image before it.
