What I want to do is display a rating for each article but
using multiple pictures instead of a number. The articles are
loaded in from sql and disaplyed using a browse or search, user
ratings are sent with the article and displayed as a number.
I want the rating to display from 0 to 5 as pictures, so a
rating of 2.5 would display as 5 little icons with 2 and a half of
them normal and the other 2.5 with 30% opacity.
Just want to see how people would go about doing it, what
kind of code would you write for it and would you load in movie
clips for each half of an image and adjust the alpha with code or
make movieclips that have all of the images already in them with
the alpha pre set on them.
i'd make one icon movieclip that consisted of 2 child
movieclips each comprising 1/2 the icon's appearance. then i'd
create another movieclip that contained 5 icon movieclips, give it
a linkage id and your set.
