ActionScript 2.0 :: "Adding Thumbnails" Kirupa Tutorial - Import Transparent Gifs Via Swfs

Jul 14, 2005

This tutorial found on: [URL] Is extension of: [URL] The problem manifests itself when I substitute .jpg thumbnail with .swf one. (I need this because i need transparent thumbs, so i needed to import transparent gifs via swfs - i used [URL] to convert gifs to swfs if someone is interested - It is released under the GPL. ) XML is parsed ok, and the thumbnail is visible with other .jpg thumbnails. The problem is that it is not "alive": Clicking on it doesn't change the main image, hovering doesn't change its alpha:

IDE :: Adapting Kirupa's "Adding Thumbnails" Tutorial (MX 2004) Into Just Plain Old MX?

Jan 11, 2009

continue the success with incorporating the scrolling thumbnails feature to my current galleries.I have done my best to incorporate the code from Kirupa's "Adding Thumbnails" tutorial to my site, but have a feeling the loader class is only MX 2004 and on, and I'm using plain old MX. I have absolutely no thumbnails showing up at all.

PS I also found two discrepancies in the tutorial:

1. Initial code to be pasted has a line such as this:

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

and later in the tutorial that same code is treated as this:

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

2. Initial code to be pasted has a line such as this:

Code:
}else if ((_root._xmouse<=40) && (thumbnail_mc.hitTest(hit_left))){

but later in the tutorial when it's broken down it's listed as this:

Code:
}else if ((_root._xmouse<=(hit_left._x+40)) && (thumbnail_mc.hitTest(hit_left))) {

It's very difficult to test all possible variations in this, but I think I have, as there were 4 possible combinations since 2 lines of code varied. But none of them worked. Either way, would be good to know which users should be using. A little help in identifying: "snowThumbMC" is the name of my empty movie clip instance on my stage, in which I should be loading all of the thumbnails.

1. Is "target_mc" the name of an actual movie clip I should have on the stage somewhere? Or is it simply an empty one created via code to hold info?? I'm trying to figure out what exactly "target_mc" refers to.

2. Is "pictureValue" an actual value of a variable named "picture"? If so, should I have this variable on stage somewhere? I'm just not sure by reading the code (since I can't properly read it) what exactly "picture" refers to.

Code:
function thumbNailScroller() {
// thumbnail code!
this.createEmptyMovieClip("tscroller", 1000);
scroll_speed = 10;

IDE :: Tutorial 'Adding Thumbnails' / Reload Other Thumbnails Again?

Jan 19, 2010

I used the tutorial "Adding Thumbnails" to build a fotoshow. Adding another xml-file I have the problem,that I cannot reload(?) the thumbnails correctly.[code]Then I do not see any thumbnails,if(!) the new thumbnail list contains fewer elements than the old one and if the old thumbnail list was scrolled over the hit_right field before.It is seemingly necessary to reset the internal state of the movieclip.

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;
image = [];

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.

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

modify this tutorial ([URL]) so that it does this: one of the external swf's has a button in it that loads another external swf in a different area of the stage, so now there would be 2 external swf's displayed on stage. Then, when one of the main buttons is clicked, the exit animation of the 2nd swf is played, then the exit animation of the 1st swf is played, then the new external swf is loaded in the same spot that the 1st one was.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Dynamic Scrolling Text Box Using Kirupa Tutorial

Dec 23, 2003

I've created a dynamic scrolling text box using the kirupa tutorial. It's the tutorial that uses self-made buttons to scroll up and down. In my movie I've got 7 buttons, when one is pressed I want to display different text in the text box. I have it working by loading text from .txt files but it is slow and does not allow me to format the text as I would like. What I'm thinking of doing is creating 7 keyframes on the timeline of the scrollable text. Then in each frame have the different text that I want displayed. When I click on a button it would go to one of those frames thus displaying the corresponding text. I can't get it to work. I've changed the text box to a static text box. I can't get it to move the playhead to the next frame in the text movie clip which the scrollable text box resides in.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Kirupa's Photo Slide Show With Thumbnails?

Jul 2, 2008

I am customizing the Photo slide show with thumbnails from this site. It is great. I was able to customize it so it would work with bigger pics (640 width X 480 height) basically wider pics then they are tall, but I also have pics that are taller then they are wide (480 height X 640 width).

1. in the thumbnail area the taller pics load over top of the pic before it and then there is a large gap after it.

2. the movie clip that loads the full size image aligns the pics to the upper left corner of the movie clip. I would like it to center the taller pic. I know I will have the same problem with the wider pics when I make the viewing area 640x640 they will look to high.

here is the code that is used:

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

ActionScript 2.0 :: Can't Get Kirupa Scrollbar To Scroll With The Generated Thumbnails + Dynamic Content

Feb 4, 2009

Mainly been making websites all these years, but in my last year at school i started to get interested in Flash Actionscript. I've been at home for over a year in 2008, unemployed. I got back to school in September 2008 but quit the education as it wasn't for me. Now I'm looking to get a job, but I need a showcase, so I'm building my portfolio at the moment.

I'm currently working on my portfolio which i wanted to make in Flash using XML generated content. I got as far as getting the content generated in my prototype. Now I'm trying to build the real thing. I currently got a scrollbar on the left which contains the thumbnails. I used the custom scrollbar from [URL] ([URL]). The content in it is generated with xml and actionscript though.
