I am making a calendar where I have a button for each month and a state for each month. I have it all set up for the buttons to take you to the right month, but I want the months to cycle by laterally as you click the buttons. For example, say I am on January, and I click March, I want Februrary to slide on, then slide off while march slides on. I don't want it to just jump right to march. Is there an easy way to do this without having to animate everysingle state to another state. I'd like to just animate January to December and have everything in the middle automatically calulate. Even if you can't do that, what would be the easiest way to do what I want?
Off the top of my head, I don't think there is a clean way of doing this solely with Flash Catalyst. This can be done with a small amount of ActionScript in Flash Builder. Let me see if I can the time to cook up a sample.
I agree with Newbury - very often you'd simply like to advance through several stages instead of animating the transitions from each state to every other. Such a feature would be very helpful in the future. Thanks!
