New to cs3 and flash and I'm struggeling to get the grip on
how to work with it.
I'm trying to achieve 4 seperate background images with text
that fade in and out on each image. The images should load
sequentialy, creating a slideshow.
I thought that the way to do this was to create a "slide
presentation" with 4 slides where the timeline per slide could be
set up seperately. How ever I can't figure out how to make one
slide load the next? I tried to do this by adding a gototNextSlide
behaviour on "complete" event. This didn't work, nothing happens!
The first slide just runs a never ending loop?! I tried adding the
same behaviour for mouseDown, which works fine...
I'm I compleatly off course? Should I have a totally
different approch? I don't understand the action script in general,
how do I achieve debug mode? I've tried adding breakpoints and run
as "Debug->Debug Movie" but I don't seem to hit the breakpoints
event with the mouseDown event which obvoiusly work?!
yeah, it would be much easier to use movieclips and Tweens on
a timeline in a 'normal' fla file, than to use the Slide class.
this way you could do it all on the timeline sequentially. Place
the background 'images' on a layer, and use Tweens to fade from one
to another, same with the text, but place it on another layer, and
then you can control all of the timings by the placement of your
You could do this dynamically with scripting, but it should
be easy enough using the timeline.
