So, I've developed a 3d carousel using this tutorial and the XML, and customized the XML in Dreamweaver.
Now, I've got the carousel set up exactly the way I would like, but the only trouble, is how do I add numeric values as the text for the xml file???
Here's an example to the working carousel and where text is loaded for each item on it. (put your sound on mute if you don't want to hear the video)
For example, in my XML, if I would like the text to be "3d images", when I export the FLA, only "d images" comes through because the numeric values can't be added as the text for the tooltip.
Does anyone have any ideas?
Here is an example of how the XML is loaded into the .swf - the text loads great, but just not the numeric characters.
The same story can be said for special characters, I would like to know how to add a "&" sign too.
<icon image="images/Subsalt_E_P_Partnerships.png" tooltip="3D Images" content="Text Copy.">
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Numbers are valid text in XML, so this sounds like a Flash problem. Maybe try the Flash users forum.
Here's a longshot: What if you changed the tooltip to "D3 Images", does that work? If it's only problem with leading digits, then try putting a space character before it.
Thanks a lot for the reply. Your post got me thinking that it's actually a flash problem, as the actual descriptor text shows 123,etc and "&".
The trouble is that the icons are dynamically loaded from the XML to movie clips on the flash file. I've asked the flash forum to see if they could take a look.
