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.

ActionScript 2.0 :: MichaelxxOA And Kirupa Content Scrollbar?

Aug 26, 2007

I have been reading through the Source/Experiments threads and trying to implement suggestions in the Content Scrollbar (Revised) [URL].. thread. I'm using Flash MX 2004, Actionscript 2.0 and throughout the course of this great thread the suggestions seem to shift and become geared for Flash 8. There are a few hints that MichaelxxOA kindly left for MX 2004 people loading content dynamically but I haven't been able to get to work. It's been a long work in progress but I feel like I am getting closer. At the moment I have been able to get the xml content to load into flash but I had to create a kind of dummy cell in the contentMain that is approximately the length of the combined images in the xml document. Is there a way to change the code so that it can read and load the content of the xml document so that when it varies flash loads into contentMain what ever combined height the xml includes? Here is the zip including .xml, .fla, .swf, .as and image with progress so far.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Scroll Box (w/scrollbar) Content Defined By XML?

Jan 23, 2010

I'm wanting to make a vertical scrollbox (say, 150 px wide by 500 px high with a scrollbar) and where the content is defined by an XML file. The catch... I'd like each name in the list to become a button (or otherwise clickable) that opens a swf (also specified in the XML file). I have succeeded in making a static list where each "name button" was created manually... but I'm realizing my list is going to be hundreds of names and I'm thinking there must be a way to achieve this with XML. Here is the current version:

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 :: ScrollPane With Dynamic Content: No Scroll Bar Showing

Mar 10, 2010

I'm loading text from an external txt file into a dynamic text field. This dynamic text field is inside a movie clip, which is loaded into the ScrollPane.

The text shows up in the ScrollPane, and when testing locally the scroll bar appears and works, but when I'm testing online the text still appears in the ScrollPane, but there is not scroll bar... it is cut off at the bottom of the ScrollPane with no scrolling ability. Why isn't the scroll bar showing when testing online? The MC being loaded into the scroll pane is called "newsContent" and the scroll pane is called "scrollPane".

//Dynamic News Section
_root.contentNews.scrollPane.contentPath = "newsContent";
var mcMain:MovieClip;

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 :: Modify The Kirupa Image Gallery To Use Numbers In Place Of Thumbnails?

I am trying to modify the Kirupa image gallery to use numbers in place of thumbnails.So far I have been able to place buttons on the stage using attachMovie()and I have been successful in getting them numbered properly.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Kirupa's Simple Custom Scrollbar - Revised?

Aug 13, 2006

I am trying to modify Kirupa's Simple Custom Scrollbar to function the same as [URL]..I have managed to reposition / resize the scrollbar based on the Stage/Browser width/height but need your help to include these functions.When the Stage/Browser is resized, the "scrollFace" adjusts its scrollFace._y position to maintain its proportional position based on the new scrollTrack._height.Eg: The "scrollFace" is moved 3/4 of the way down the "scrollTrack".. When the Stage/Browser is resized, the "scrollFace" is still 3/4 of the way down the "scrollTrack" proportionally.When the Stage/Browser is resized, the "contentMain" adjusts its contentMain._y position to maintain its proportional position based on the new scrollFace._y.Eg: The "contentMain" is moved 3/4 of the way down via the "scrollFace".. When the Stage/Browser is resized, the "contentMain" is still 3/4 of the way down proportionally to the "scrollFace".When the "Mousewheel" of your Mouse is moved, it scrolls the content accordingly.Also it is a wee bit juttery in the scrolling, I'm not sure if it is anything I have done or just because its a large file?

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;
