I'm a bit stumped with a problem to do with flash catalyst and whether its possible to have things occur without the viewer doing anything.
For example would it be possible for a webpage to open and have images load from an XML file, then every few seconds automatically fade from one to the other in a loop (without the webpage viewer doing anything)?
If so, would someone be kind enough to point me in the right direction on how I would do it?
The simple answer is "sort of". Take a look at this thread.
However, you also mention that you wish to load the images via XML. Flash Catalyst does not directly support this. You will need to take your Flash Catalyst project into Flash Builder to add the Actionscript to load the XML. Since you have to do this, I would not recommend the suggestion of using a flv as a timer, but control the timing via code.
Hope this helps,
Ah thats great, thanks for passing that on Chris.
