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 = [];

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;

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

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:

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;

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 :: 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.

IDE :: Adding Thumbnails - Moving The Scroller?

Mar 19, 2009

I am using the Kirupa gallery with thumbnail scroller - which is a FANTASTIC gallery system!

I want to move the scroller but when its moved further right...the scroller stops working. I can move it up and down on the stage, but once it goes a certain distance to the right the thumbnails do not load.

I also shortened the mask to about 160 px so it only shows 3 thumbnails of my pictures.

Here is a link to my FLA file: [URL]

How can I get this to work? Why wont the thumbnails load once the scroller moves a bit further to the right!

ActionScript 2.0 :: Adding Thumbnails - Get The Width Of Each Thumbnail?

Aug 11, 2006

I have built a thumbnail gallery based on the tutorial on this site. It works great, but I'm having trouble with my thumbnails loading in order.I am calling images from an xml file, and placing them in a horizontal scrollbar. All of my thumbnails are different widths. Therefore, I need to be able to get the width of each thumbnail to position it in relation to the one before it and so on. Because of this, I'm using onLoadInit to position the images. Now, this creates a random horizontal order, based on how fast they load on the user's computer, not on their order in the xml file. I would use onLoadStart or onLoadComplete, as this would call them in that order, but the width is not available at this point in the loading, so they pile on top of each other.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Adding Descriptions To Thumbnails In Xml Gallery?

I used this code, from "Creating Websites for Dummies" to create a video playlist. The only problem is that it (the book) doesnt show how to load descriptions for the video thumbnails (saying the title etc...of the video). I cant work out how to attach a dynamic text field to each thumbnail that reads its description from an xml file, can anyone give me some pointers or explain how this is done? I've been stuck on this for a few days now and i cant work it out..

in the code below 'main' refers to an attribute in teh xml file.

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.

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

ActionScript 2.0 :: XML Adding Thumbnails Tut - Limiting Scroll Boundaries?

Sep 14, 2006

I've been working on Kirupa's adding thumbnails to the XML photo gallery. I've managed to change the scroller to one that is vertical and reposition it to where I wanted it and everything works fine. urrently the code accounts for when the mouse moves (on the horizontal) to the left or right of the thumbnail container to stop scrolling. However when the mouse moves up and down to scroll (on the vertical) it continues to scroll even though the mouse has moved outside the container area. I'd like for it to only scroll when the mouse is within the 30 pixel - hit_left/right boudaries.

Here's the code, as you can see the changes have been very little from the original.

This seems like it should be part of the "Adding Thumbnails" - the large images are align to the left when they load. So when you have landscape and portrait orientation images, they should horizontally align to center, not to the left.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Adding Rollover Effects To Dynamically Created Thumbnails?

Aug 15, 2009

ive built it based off of an example we made in class last year that i had lying around..

as you can see here everything works fine.

The only problem is I want to add some roll over effects to the thumbnail but im not sure how to go about this as they are all dynamically added to the stage..

The way I tried was adding an event listener to each thumb via the function that adds the thumbs to the stage (see the "createThumbs()" function below). The event listener works fine and calls to the function i assigned to it ("thumbRoll") but im not sure what to put in this function to effect the thumb that is moused over as im unable to access "btn_thumb" from "thumbRoll".

ps. sorry if the code is a bit messy, bit of an experiment for me to get everything working..

ActionScript Code:
//imports go here
import flash.display.*;

ActionScript 2.0 :: Adding Border Around Thumbnails In Photo Slideshow Using XML And Flash

Nov 6, 2006

I have been using the tutorial on the Photo Slideshow Using XML and Flash, and think it is fantastic. It is really clear and easy to follow. However I have encoutered three things with it. Firstly I would love to be able to add a border around each thumbnail accross the bottom, that would change color when the user rolls over the thumbnail.I would also like to be able to highlight which thumbnail is currently being shown as the top image.The third issue I have had is when a user moves the mouse to the right of the first image, it scrolls about 5 pixels to the right even though there is no other image before it.
