I have few questions and hope any of you flash master can
help me on it. I have a 3D carousel spinning gallery loaded with
XML in my content frame (this frame contains different content
pages such as about us, service n etc).
I would like to know how can I make it like when I click on
the carousel thumbnail, it'll bring me to the particular gallery
page for that category. I have the gallery page coded in the
content frame together. Now when I click on the carousel thumbnail,
it'll load another page with the getURL command. (the URL is read
from the XML file)
Is there any way I can make it to load the gallery page
inside my swf instead of loading another html page?
p/s: Hope you can understand what I'm talking about, I know
my description is not clear enough 'coz I don't really know how to
explain it.. =$
One problem that you might face is that Flash can load and
render external SWFs but not (complete) HTML pages.
If the contents of the HTML page is simply an SWF, then you
can modify your code to allow Flash to load the SWF instead of
opening a new window. That is, change the XML code to reflect the
location of the SWF, not the HTML file. Then, in Flash, make use of
the loadMovieNum, loadClip, or loadMovie methods to either load the
SWF to a _level or a MovieClip.
Otherwise, you may have to rethink your set-up.
I imagine that this gallery page is mainly comprised of
images? If so, it might be better to represent the gallery page as
another XML page with the URLs of images specific to that gallery.
And then just as your 3D carousel loads in XML, you could load in
the XML for a particular gallery and then load in each image using
the loadMovie or loadClip methods.
