Hi, I'm new to flash/actionscript and searching google and the forums have not helped (perhaps I'm using the wrong terms).
I'd like to call up a scene when an image is pressed. I understand, I think, where the image is located on xml and the fla/actionscript. Here are the corresponding parts.
<image imageUrl="_pic16.png" link="asfunction:link"/>
imageProperties = _root.getCurrentImageName(16);
loadMovie(_root.url + imageProperties.name, this.cont.pic);
loadMovie(_root.url + imageProperties.name, this.cont.pic1);
url = imageProperties.linkToOpen;
targetWindow = imageProperties.target;
I was thinking I could edit the xml part to:
<image imageUrl="_pic16.png" link="asfunction:_root.more_click_func,0"/>
However, it does nothing.
What am I missing here? I appreciate your time and effort for helping.
1. you shouldnt' attach code to objects. attach to a frame if you're coding on a timeline.
2. you need to load your xml: use the xml class.
3. parse the xml in an onLoad or onData method and load your image into a target movieclip
4. after loading of your image is complete (use preloader code), apply your onPress method to the target movieclip
