What i want to do is be able to control my flash menu from an
admin page of my website. I want to be able to create headings and
sublinks and have the flash menu read an access database and then
work out what to do from that.
Most of it is easy to do, the only problem I am having is the
flash part, say i read in 3 headings and each one has 3
subheadings, what do I do from here?. What is going to happen is
when an heading is clicked it moves to the top and the rest
disapear. The sublinks then appear. and can be clicked.
Is there a way that I can auto generate a button or
something, like new heading("TITLE",x,y) etc
then after that I assume that the sub headings will need
generating. dont know if any 1 will understand that, but hey its
all fun, any ideas will be apriaciated. Thanks.
There are a number of ways you could go about this, but it
sounds like the
best approach for you would be to create two movieclips - one
and one for subheadings and place them in the Library with
All you need to do to create a menu is use the attachMovie();
place a new instance of the Library item on the screen. Look
attachMovie(). That will explain a great deal.
Also, in the book "Using Flash MX to Create eLearning", there
is an example
that sounds 99% on mark to fit your needs.
