Aug 3, 2011

My query is in respect to the tutorial posted on kirupa : [URL] Now :

1) If I want to add a line of caption ,the moviclip expands in a horizontal manner. So , if I write a big description , the caption movieclip occupies whole stage width. How can i make this movieclip exapand in a vertical fashion after a fixed no. of characters

2) Suppose a button which is inside a movieclip has been applied this function , the button action doesnt work !!!! only the hover caption appears. ( specifically the button on(release) action ) !! What is the possible solution.

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.

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:

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:

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

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

}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:

}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.

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