I'm developing a web site that utilizes text loaded in from
external text file. I have borrowed scrolling AS from various
tutorials and this works for the most part...here's the situation
Situation (Site Design)
master.swf - sets stage, clip loaders, shared library,
variable loaders, etc.
mainNav.swf - loads the main and sub-navigation buttons
(loaded level 20).
aboutUs.swf - a graphic and dynamic text field that's
scrollable (loaded level5).
aboutUs.swf - there are three different text files loaded
into the dynamic text field depending on the selection of the
sub-navigation menu. Two of the text fields load and scroll
correctly, but one is quite problematic...the text loads correctly,
and the images load, but the scroll bar doesn't work correctly any
big Question If I strip out the img tags from the text file, it works
fine, but I would like to include the images. Is this possible?
Put your text and your images on to a movie clip. Put a mask
over the clip. Build your own scroller that just moves the clip up
and down behind the the mask. You will only see the part covered by
the mask. For some reason it's possible to have a movie clip that
is much larger than the actual stage. You can see an example that I
modified from a book on flash at
Thanks for the info...and I could build that, but what I'm
trying to do is create a flash site that I can update (or someon
else if need be) easily by changing the text file...not the flash
or action script.
Again, the scrollers work perfect with HTML/CSS formatted
text, but I would like to add images as necessary...and need to
know if that's possible (when I strip out the
img tags from the text - it works perfectly).
