ActionScript 2.0 :: Loading Pictures From Folder?

Oct 22, 2009

I have created a php-file that sends the filenames of images from a folder on a server back to flash, where i populate a array with that info.

What i want to do now is to load the images on the server into a movieclip to make some sort of slideshow.

But im not sure how to make this work. Can i use the loadMovie method for this? How can i then get the array info into the loadMovie method? Im a newbie so please explain well.

Flash :: Swf - Add A Folder Of Pictures To App?

Jun 21, 2011

I have a flash app (deployed as Air or regular app for iOS) which displays pictures.

It has to work offline, so I need to bundle my pictures with the flash app. I wrote a script to download all pics from my server to a specific folder before deploying the flash app. Currently, I remove all existing pictures from the FLA and add the new ones, but I was wondering whether there is a way to define a system folder for flash and it will take whatever exists there during the deployment process?

So basically all I'll have to do will be to run my script (to update the folder with the new pics) and recompile the FLA.

Flash :: Loading Pictures Into AS3?

Jun 27, 2009

Scenario: Upload 2 images to a server. Download those images via AS3 and place them into different containers(movieclip or sprite), not overlapping one another. Well I can do it no problem, but they overlap one another and for some reason use the same "loader".

for (var i=1; i<2; i++){
var image:URLRequest = new URLRequest("" +jpgarray[i]+".jpg");
var myLoader:Loader = new Loader();[code]....

There are several different ways you can write the above code, but the outcome is still the same. It uses the same Loader or Movieclip, or uses the same container, simply overlapping the images.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Loading Pictures From Xml ?

Nov 4, 2009

I have an XML document that has 25 different subjects and in each subject, 4 different pictures:


I have 2 groups of different buttons. The first group is a set of 4 buttons, one for each image in a single subject. When the user clicks btn1 then image 1a needs to display. When the user presses btn2 then image 1b displays, and so on.The second group of buttons is a set of 2 btns: nextSubjectBtn and prevSubjectBtn. The names are pretty self explanatory but basically, when the user clicks nextSubjectBtn then I need the next subject from the xml to load and the 1 2 3 4 btns need to switch over to the images within the next subject. So when the user presses btn1 then image 2a shows up etc.

I have studied a ton of documents on XML but I have not been able to figure this out. Its probably something pretty simple involving one or more arrays and maybe a loop or two but I dont know what.I have have all of the buttons programmed or at least recognized and ready for when I figure out what they are supposed to do. Right now they just have a trace.Through help I have gotten from different documents and other programmers this is what I need to do but I need help on how:Assign each of a buttons a value that will reference the picture URLs from the XML doc. Then create a variable with a value that references each subject 1 through 25. so when I click next subject it goes to the next subject in the xml doc.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Flash 9 - XML Pictures Not Loading

Sep 15, 2008

I have a Flash 9 AS3 document where I have set up a random picture loader from an XML file.
Works fine on the desktop but when uploaded the random pictures will only load if the XML file and the jpg's are in the same folder as the swf. I have pointed the XML loader address to
the proper spot in the AS3 code as well as in the XML file. I also have code in another keyframe for loading and displaying an RSS feed which works fine. I wonder are the two URL Loaders conflicting somehow. Attached is the RSS and the AS3 code.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Loading Pictures In Background?

Oct 6, 2009

I'm creating an interactive flash graphic about the ISS. The user can rotate the ISS in a 360� angle. I rendered the sequence in 120 steps, each step a jpeg-image of its own. To reduce bandwith-usage I dynamically preload the next 5 pics in the rotation-sequence. What I want to do now, is to load all the pics of the sequence quietly in the background, so when all pictures are loaded the flash switches from preloading the future pics to just showing the pictures loaded while the application is up and running. The problem is, if I try this, the flashapp will only start if the loading in the background is done. Is there any way of getting rid of that. My code is given below.

ActionScript Code:
var loader_current_Minus1:Loader = new Loader();
var loader_current_Minus2:Loader = new Loader();

ActionScript 3.0 :: Loading Multiple Pictures Into Three MovieClips

Apr 3, 2010

I'm trying to load 3 pictures into 3 movieclips. The code below gives the result of only showing the 3rd image in mc3_mc. According to the traces I'm using, 3 files are being loaded but it seems that my Event.COMPLETE statement is not doing it's job? It seems that the first 2 times addChild is reached the file has not finished loading or the next one has already started to load so addChild doesn't add anything. Only the final iteration gets shown because there is no 'next file' to get in it's way.

Code follows:
var numofiles:int=2;
var counter:Number=0;
var movieIndex:int;
var fileName:String;
var horzLoader:Loader = new Loader();

ActionScript 2.0 :: Loading Different Pictures Based On Time Of Day?

Apr 17, 2004

I'm trying to load a different .gif file based upon the time of day. I figured what I wrote would work, but alas, I was wrong. Here's what I got:

files=["sunrise.gif", "morning.gif", "midday.gif",
"afternoon.gif", "twilight.gif", "night.gif"]
var currentHour:Number = myDate.getHours();


I know I can take out that first array, and I do believe I can take out the minutes and seconds, but I left the code as is, in case I screwed it all up. Oh and the pictures have no paths because I imported them into the actual .fla.
