I followed a tutorial to build a click-thru photo gallery that is linked to an XML file. The tutorial set up the navigation as being controlled by clicking the images, but I wanted to add some more obvious navigation prompts for viewers on my website. The "next" button was easy to do as I just copied the actions for clicking the images on the main section of the stage, but when it came to building the "previous" button, the code was not working. I want the button to take the audience to the image before the image they are on when clicked.
I've pasted what I have below and highlighted the sections that I have altered. If you could please tell me what I'm doing wrong, that would be great.
I am not a programmer, but have managed to combine the slideshow, image gallery and hover features of the provided scripts to create a slideshow that you can control with the previous and next buttons. I have also been able to connect it to an access database so you can control the images / info through Content Management console. once this has been sorted I will post the code here, if its any use to anyone. Here is the script!
I started my First XML Slideshow/Gallery. Through perseverance and with a little help I have manages to get my thumbnails perfect the problem I am now faced with is adding my main images. I have managed to add the image to my stage but I want the relevant image to only appear when an onClick function is called by the thumbnail. Here is my problem, I dont know how to call the specific image in the onClick function only all of them (it would appear)?
Code: import com.greensock.*; import com.greensock.easing.*; var urlRequest:URLRequest = new URLRequest("slideshow.xml");
I have a news rotator that is populated from an RSS feed. The rotator has a timer that cycles through the news items, displaying a link and image and title for each item. I have the put in three buttons for the user to control the item that is displaying. A pause, forward and backward button.
My issue is that I'm not sure how to implement the button without messing up my timer that is already running. I was able to do the Pause button, which was simply to stop the timer. The forward and backward buttons are a bit more tricky. This is what I have so far. Note that I have much of the code duplicated because I needed to initialize the objects for the first timer index. After the first item, the code runs from the timerHandler() function.
PHP Code: var xmlLoader:URLLoader = new URLLoader(); var xmlData:XML = new XML(); import fl.transitions.Tween; import fl.transitions.easing.*; import fl.transitions.TweenEvent; [Code] .....
I attempting to make a slideshow like the one on this page: [URL] But i was wondering if it is possible to change the code so that if you click on the main image, another image could come up next to it? (I'm making a portfolio site, and i want people to click on one of the main images to then see a detail image next to it).
How would someone go about getting the actionscript to look for another field in the xml file that had a Url link to a webpage for each image that would be activated by clicking on that particular image.
I downloaded the trial of flash cs4 and have created a simnple flash.I am creating a simple slideshow, each of the slides should be clickable and redirect the browser.I created images then imported them and they were automatically converted to symbols.I combined the symbols using some motion tweens.I then created an actions layer and created clasic tween wher I want the user to be able to click.My problem is I cant get it working. I think I am not referencing the right objects.[code]I have tried setting the object reference to the motion tween instance name, the classic tween name on the actions layer and the symbol name none seem to work
I have created a pie preloader(preloader.zip) which is working fine. Same preloader I am trying to incorporate in a xml based slideshow(slideshow.zip) to show image loading process but some how I got stuck. I am new to flash. Suggestions are welcome.
1. How to solve the problem of preloader2. Is it possible to integrate everything in a movie clip (including AS). I mean no AS on main time line but inside the movie clip. It would be much easier then to to create multiple slideshows by duplicating mc and changing the xml file.
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.
first off, i'm pretty new with actionscript so the answer to this question may be obvious. however, i cannot for the life of me figure out what i'm doing wrong or how to fix it. so, i went through the tutorial for the auto slideshow with xml [URL] everything is working great for the auto slideshow; however, my issue is with the "previous" and "next" buttons. the "previous" seems to work in that it will back up to the previous slide, no problem, but if my slides are times for 3 seconds each and i hit previous at 2.5 seconds into the current slide, i only have .5 seconds to view the previous slide and not the full 3 seconds.
OK next issue is with the "next" button -- i have 4 slides/photos it works fine from slide 1 to slide 2, but if i hit next to go from 2 to 3 the slideshow starts an endless loop from 1 to 3 to 1 to 3 to 1 and it never jumps out of that loop. the same thing happens from 3 to 4 -- the loop is 2 to 4 to 2 to 4 to 2. again, it doesn't break the loop and go back into the regular sequence. here's the actionscript as it appears in my flash file:
I am trying to create a "slideshow" in flash CS4 and I have set it to fade out one image is it fades in another (using alpha) for about 10 - 15 images.However, I want to add a "border" to my slideshow, that stays there throughout the entire process without it fading in and out along with the pictures.
I am trying to figure out how to create a flash slideshow including buttons that interact with the slides. A perfect example of what I am trying to create is the flash slideshow on the Frito Lay's website[url]....I am sure there is some action code for the button that can do this, but being to to Flash code.
I have a nice as3 swf that reads and xml file, and loads images with transitionsfor a slide show on an html banner page.This works fine. There are some users that see white space (the stage) before thefirst image loads. Depending on the clients connection, etc this can take aslong as 2 or 3 sec.
I was thinking about placing a jpeg in the fla, and adding it to the stageas a symbol or graphic, so instead of white space (or a color other than white)the user sees an image on the page, and when the xml loader places the first image on the page, the user sees the image, and the slideshow, etc.
I'm looking for a way to extend the functionality of the HTMLEditor control that the Ajax Control Toolkit supplies for ASP.net. I would like to add video and flash functionality to the editor (buttons, allowed tags, etc).
To my knowledge, this is rather easy: plop in an embed tag with the correct parameters and it just works; I have videos running in the preview window of the editor.
Unfortunately, the tag is stripped away when saving the HTML-code and updating it in the database.
Hence, I would like to ask if there is any way of adding this functionality apart from manually adding the changes in the source control repository of the Ajax Control Toolkit and recompiling it.
I'm working with a flash image slideshow and I'm having trouble getting it to read from my xml file for the captions, the same thing with the images. I've changed the paths on the as well as is there anything I'm missing, any other path I am supposed to change to read off of the correct XML file and image directory? Here's the link - [URL]
Hello All, I have made a photo slideshow following exactly the following page:[URL]..It works very fine in my local computer. But, after I uploaded the files (SWF, XML, JPGs) to server it does not work well. Some photos are loaded, some not. There is no problem in path settings in XML. All images are in the same folder. Moreover, the photos are not same which loads sometimes, sometimes not. For example, I can see that photo no. 1, 3, 5, 9 are loaded and rest are not loaded. Again, if I visit the page/slideshow after some times, photo no. 1, 4, 6, 8 are loaded, rest not.
Is there any way to force the SWF to load all the images one by one and not to skip an image.
Even, if I visit the tutorial page [URL].._slideshow.htm I can see that the example SWF file given at the starting of the tutorial is doing the same behavior as that of mine. For example, right now I can see that the slideshow in this page is stopped at the image "Boston" (image no. 8/10) and it skipped the image "Dome" (image no. 6/10). Sometimes, it will stop at another image and may be, skip another image.
I am trying to make a image slideshow for my companies new website. I used the Flash Image Viewer plugin from Dreamweaver, but it doesn't contain the transitional effect desired.
Every tutorial I find talks about advancing the images through an interactive control, I just want the images to change by themselves and do a fade transitional effect between images. Can anyone please point me to a tutorial that has this w/o the intractive buttons? I have been looking on the internet for hours and can only find tutorials / example w/ the intractve controls.
I'm fairly new to ActionScript 3.0 so forgive me if this question is easy, but I'm having issues with my portfolio slideshow. I have a few thumbnails and when you click on one the image slides in from the right. That part is fine. What I really want is for the user to click on a different random thumbnail and have the current image slide out as the new image slides in. My code so far:
I'm writing a WIndows application that embeds Flash which I would like to control through the Windows buttons - for example start, stop... What tools do I need to do this and where can I get the info on how to make it happen? This is not a web app.
