Actionscript 3 XML Gallery
Learn to Progam an Actionscript 3 XML Gallery Compatible with Flash CS3
This 2 hour Quicktime tutorial for Flash will teach you the Actionscript 3 Code to load an XML File, which will bring thumbnails into a scrollable pane. Thumbnails then link to corresponding images or swfs which load into the main area of the Flash file.
In the XML file you can easily change thumbnail paths, pictures paths, picture titles and descriptions using XML.
You can also swap thumbnail layouts. The example above uses a single vertical column and single horizontal row of thumbnails to free up more screen real estate for the main images. You can also create thumbnail areas of any number of rows / columns.
Add links to open other XML files which can load up alternate galleries.
