ActionScript 2.0 :: Modifying A Kirupa Tutorial

Jun 21, 2006

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 3.0 :: Modifying Kirupa's Xml Photo Slideshow?

Jul 17, 2009

I'm trying to modify Kirupa's xml photo slideshow by adding an extra text field, which if I understand correctly gives each element 3 children (image+text1+text2) instead of 2 (image+text). Even though I've added the third child correctly in the xml, I can't seem to get it to work at all. Here is what I did with the actionscript:

delay = 10000;
function loadXML(loaded) {
if (loaded) {


I've highlighted the parts I've added to the code provided by kirupa's tutorial. sub_text is the instance name I give to the new text field in Flash.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Modifying The Cycling Text Tutorial?

Oct 12, 2009

I've been slowly expanding my Flash MX knowledge by going through some of the Kirupa tutorials. After completing the Random Letter Cycling tutorial I got an idea of how to modify it. The problem is I don't have a good grasp on writing my own Actionscript yet to try my idea.I can create a single instance of the movie clip (clip1.fla) but I am unsure of how to tie together multiple clips to create my desired idea (example.swf)Does anyone have the time to give me some pointers of how to achieve effect in the attached file? It's based on the tutorial above, but after it runs , it fades out and repeats itself a couple times. Ideally I would like each item to appear for about 2-3 seconds, fade out, and have the new one appear

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;

IDE :: Modifying UI Scrollbar?

Feb 19, 2009

I have created a dynamic text box and attached the default UIscroll bar from the components library in CS4.I have attached it to the text box and it works ok.When i drop it onto my page it appears white (my background is black). When I preview it does what it is supposed to. So far so good. NO! The default Scroll bar is hideous. I want to change it but I cannot figure out how to.

I have tried double clicking it but it cannot be edited. Is this an action Script thing? I have recreated it in another flash document with the text box and the scroll bar which I have attached called 'scroller with text'.I have double cliked the scroll bar and changed it to how I want it and it works, i know how to but its not in my main flash file i am working from. I have saved the one Ire-created one as a SWF and tried importing it but it has errors on it. see attached 'MAIN_Menupage'.I have been through all the tutorials on this website and cannot get this to work.

This is not about applying an external stylesheet to texts inside flash, but the opposite: modifying an external CSS.

I want to switch the visibility of id='wrap', from 'hidden' to 'visible', with the click of a button of my swf.
