Started a new project and fell over before I even got out of
the gate !
If you have two minutes (literally) do what I did and let me
know where I went wrong.
New movie - rectangle tool - make a vertical bar at the left
hand side - convert to MC. instance name "sidebar".
Make an external .txt file which reads "sidebar=0xff0000"
call the file "settings.txt".
Back in Flash make a new MC called "palette".
Frame one actions read "loadVariables("settings.txt",
Frame 3 actions read:
myColor = new Color(_root.sidebar);
So far so good - if you test your movie the sidebar will turn
Then I tried to animate the sidebar as a timeline simple
motion tween - no joy.
Tried lots of things to no avail. It seems that once the
colour has been set the MC "sidebar" goes deaf...
Any ideas ?
There's something confused or missing about your story. Where
does _root.pallet.sidebarcolor come from (with palette mispelled as
well)... From what I was able to decipher of the story, if I
comment that line out sidebar moves along.
