ActionScript 3.0 :: Add A Preloader To A Thumbnails Gallery (XML)?

Apr 12, 2009

I've been trying to add a preloader to my thumbnails, but it has been quite difficult (really considering the idea of buying an AS3 book).

Well, this is what I have First the code to call the Thumbs from the XML file.

function callThumbs():void {
for (var i:Number = 0; i < my_total; i++) {
var thumb_url = my_videos[i].@THUMB;


What I really need to know is how to add a MovieClip to container_mc and when the Thumb is loaded, remove this MovieClip from it?

ActionScript 2.0 :: How To Construct Preloader For Thumbnails In XML Gallery

How to construct a preloader for the thumbnails in the xml gallery.

So far, I've got Code:
this.onEnterFrame = function() {
nfilesize = tscroller.getBytesTotal();
nloaded = tscroller.getBytesLoaded();
thumbpreload._visible = true;
if (nloaded != nfilesize) {
thumbpreload.thumbpreloadbar._xscale = 100*nloaded/nfilesize;
else {
thumbpreload._visible = false;

I'm having 2 problems (that I know of)... I'm not sure that "tscroller" is the movieclip I want to preload for the thumbnails, and I can't get my movieclip entitled "thumbpreload" (which is set _visible = true; here) to show up. This preload function seems to conflict with the main image preloader and cause it to stop working. The file I'm using can be found here: [URL]

ActionScript 2.0 :: Create Thumbnails For A Pic Gallery

Jan 24, 2003

This is question is a take off of my post in the Flash MX forum regarding creating thumbnails. I'm trying to create thumbnails for a pic gallery and would like to have an over-button state that will make my little thumbnail increase in size a little to indicate that this is the picture the viewer is going to view. I don't know how to go about making this button and I'm trying to figure out if there is a way through action script to do this. This way I don't have to make the over state a movie and increase the size manually...

ActionScript 2.0 :: Loading Thumbnails To Gallery?

Apr 8, 2007

I am having a little trouble with some code:

xmlData = new XML();
xmlData.ignoreWhite = true;
xmlData.onLoad = loadXML;


The problem I think is on the bolded part. If I replace ref["thumb"+i] for say thumb0, it loads the first thumbnail into the first movieclip. I have on the stage ten movieclips with instance names of thumb0. thumb1, thumb2, etc. What I would like to do is to load a thumbnail in each movieclip without having to write the bolded line ten times.

IDE :: Flash Photo Gallery With Thumbnails ?

May 7, 2009

I'm trying to use the flash gallery with thumbnails that was in one of the tutorials on this site. See here:

http:[url]....I wanted to make the flash player bigger, so I changed the doc size and then scaled the area mask that shows the image. I don't see why this would scale the image; it should just make the viewing window larger.But when I make an image the size I want it in photoshop, it is displaying the image far larger (blurry and cut off) than it is supposed to.Does it have to do with the action scripting, or the graphics in the document?

ActionScript 2.0 :: Distributing Thumbnails In Gallery?

Jun 4, 2009

I am using a slightly modified version of [URL]. The problem I am having is that my thumbs get arranged out of order because they aren't all the same width. The way the code from the tutorial works is it reads the width of the image onLoad, then multiplies it by the number image it is.

target_mc._x = 10 + (eval("thumbnail_mc.t" + k)._width + 5) * k;

This doesn't work, cuz some images are much thinner, so the thin images end up way too far left.

My method was to define a starting width (curWidth), then set the position of my thumb by using that value. once that is postioned, add the width of the image to curWidth plus a space. Reapeat for each image.

curWidth = 10;
function thumbnails_fn(k) {
thumbnail_mc.createEmptyMovieClip("t" + k, thumbnail_mc.getNextHighestDepth());
tlistener = new Object();


The problem with this is it puts the image out of order. In fact, it orders them based on the order they download. I understand why (cuz of onLoadInit) but I am not sure what to do about it.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Connect Gallery Buttons Rather Than Thumbnails?

Oct 24, 2009

This seems like it should be easy, but I cannot figure out how to do this in AS3. And after pouring through several books and lots of sample projects, no one quite seems to be using this method to create galleries.The goal: A gallery with circles for buttons that, when clicked, move already loaded images into view.

I have built a widget that creates the buttons and loads the images, but how do I make a connection between one dynamically created sprite(the button) and another (the corresponding image)?When adding children, is there a way to find its reference in the display object list? The buttons are named and will trace their names when clicked, but I don't see this when I'm listing the display objects.And I'm not sure how I can use these names or provide similar names for my loaded images. (My confusion is becoming evident here --or at least clouding my mind -- so I'll just leave it at that.)BTW, I have come across several tools/players that do something similar to what I want, but I'd prefer not to use someone else's controller. (It seems like the time to code this should be less than the time to skin/understand/customize someone else's FLA/SWF.)

ActionScript 3.0 :: XML Gallery - ButtonMode When Hovering Over The Thumbnails

Jul 5, 2011

I've built a simple little XML gallery. Features I need to add.

1) ButtonMode when hovering over the the thumbnails. I get "1119: Access of possibly undefined property buttonMode through a reference with static type flash.display:Loader." when I add it in.

2) One of the images loaded in is actually a SWF with a video that auto plays when the thumbnail is clicked. It play fine but when you click on a different thumbnail, you can still hear the video playing in the background. How to I property unload it. You can also see the last image behind the video player so unloading those would be great too.

3) As you can see in my code below, when you roll over or out of the thumbnails their alpha property changes. I want to make it so that when you click on a thumbnail it's alpha will remain 1 until another thumbnail is clicked and then it's alpha will change to 1.

4) Now this is the tricky part. I need to put an invisible "next" button over the large image that when clicked will load the next image or swf. It will also need to change the alpha property of the corresponding thumbnail to 1 so its matches.

ActionScript 3.0 :: MovieClip - XML Image Gallery With Thumbnails

Sep 4, 2011

I'm just beginning to learn AS3 and I'm trying to build a website in Flash. This is a photography website so it will have various image galleries. I'm able to have the images display. But I'm stuck when I try to add thumbnails to the movieclip. I've been using a for loop to loop through the total number of photo URLs in the XML, and add them to a thumbnail container. But either this will display, or only the image gallery will display. They will not display at the same time. Ideally, the thumbnail container will appear on top of the large image, so I guess I will also need to z-sort them.

Here's the code:
import fl.transitions.Tween;
import fl.transitions.easing.*;
import fl.transitions.TweenEvent;
import flash.display.Sprite;
var my_speed:Number;
