My code loads random movie clips from the same folder of the
files "17_1.swf", "17_2.swf" and so on to "17_50.swf". If I have
files that don't start with "17_" but I would like to load them
anyway without having to change all of these file names, is there a
better way for me to write this code?
In other words, how can I simply have it load all of the
movie clips in its folder rather than just the ones named
I forgot also to ask how I can "go back" as in, load the same
random movie clip I just saw if I've already clicked away from it?
I have a series of clips and the user scrolls through them, but if
he wants to view the previous one shown, how can I do that?
The first problem u describe I suspect is alot more tricky
than when u know the file name structure. I'm guessing u will have
to store all the swf file names in a file that ur flash can access,
or if possible let the web server return a directory content list
which u could parse for *.swf files. Just see to it that u dont
load the swf that u are loading from, which could in worst case
lead to a loop.
For ur second problem, you will need to keep track of the
last loaded movie with a variable, like lastLoaded (which u update
just before loading a new swf with lastLoaded = currentlyLoaded),
or keep them in an array (if u want the possibility of multiple
