I've created a data list that contains a photo with text. I'd like to be able to right click the horizontal list instead of a scrolling bar. Could you please direct me on this?
I'd also like to select each individual box from the scrolling data list and click to their website or to a menu... not sure on how to do that either??
I've attached an ai file of what i'm trying to achieve.
Funny, I was in the middle of writing an article on how to do this. The simple answer is you create a standard scrollbar with all four parts: track, thumb, increment button, and decrement button. Attach it to your data list, then make the opacity of the track and thumb = 0.
To make each item in your data list do something different, use the interactions panel and add a On Click interaction. You should notice there is an option toward the bottom of that panel to change from "When any item is selected" to "When a specific item is selected". Remember, programmers like to start counting from 0, so your first item in your data list i 0.
Note: In the attached example on the first two items are selectable.
Hope this helps,
Here is the article I wrote on creating a component like this: http://chrisgriffith.wordpress.com/2010/08/14/building-a-scrolling-thu mbnail-component/
Hope this helps!
Solely within Flash Catalyst, I don't think so. You could take the project into Flash Builder and add the ActionScript code to create that effect. My recommendations would be either to use a "web"-based solution like jQuery & some plugins or Flash Professional to recreate this. I suspect that there is a jQuery plugin that will do this will little effort.
