    Lis flash component, iconField property


      Hi, me again. Concerning the list component again ...


      So, I have another tricky question, how do we correctly use the iconField property?


      Here is my example:


      function initList()


        var s = channel("list").sprite;

        var a = new Array();


        a.push(propList("id", "1", "displayName", "1. Scan for new songs", "markerOnSelect", "SCREEN_SCAN_NEW_SONGS", "icon", "icoLibrary"));

        a.push(propList("id", "2", "displayName", "2. Settings", "markerOnSelect", "SCREEN_SETTINGS", "icon", "icoLibrary"));

        a.push(propList("id", "3", "displayName", "3. Debug", "markerOnSelect", "SCREEN_DEBUG", "icon", "icoLibrary"));

        s.iconField = "icon";

        var i;

        for (i in a)


          s.addItem(a[i].displayName, a[i]);






      In this case I expect each row to have an icon (somewhere) which here would always be the cast member "icoLibrary". But it doesn't work.


      Can someone please help me or give me a working example?

          AFAIK you can't, since the SWF expects the icon to be in its own library (and can't access Director's cast library).


          You could embed the List component in a Flash file with the icons you need and publish this to a SWF that you can then manipulate from within Director. At least, I expect this is possible since the Flash stuff is more self-contained, but I haven't tested it to verify my claim - nor am I going to!
