Gallery Preparation

Posted 07 July 2012 - 03:50 AM

Hello, D.I.C.

I'm making a flash website, and the customer would like a gallery. This is all good, the website is beautiful and such, but how would I prepare for any amount of images? It's not as if I can have a HTML container and the area for the images would have a CSS element of overflow: auto.

I know that it IS possible, I just don't know how I would go about it.

This website is written in AS2.0.

Thanks in advance, any help appreciated.

You need to use masking.

A big movieclip that acts as mask to a row of images.

This stuff might help.

Thanks for the reply, but I don't think I explained myself clear. I don't want a viewer - so to speak, I want an image selector, but to be prepared for say, 5 images and then also be prepared for say 25 images. Because I want to be able to select any one of those images, I can't just place a certain amount of movieclips and hope that they only upload that amount of images.

Do you understand what I mean? I'm not sure if I'm wording it right.

Thanks again

Well, this looks good, but I don't know how they prepare for any amount of images. It's all confusing.

Thanks for your reply

Are you going to have the image information stored in an XML file or similar database?

I will be using MySQL and PHP.PHP will create the XML document to populate the images.

I would go with the tilelist component for this, it's the perfect fit

Thanks, that does look really helpful, but I was hoping to do my gallery in AS2.0 and the provided information is for AS3.0.

I'll try and work up some script and see if I can shed some more light on my intentions and seek help on how I could better my methods -- if it all.

Watch this space.

Thanks

Would AS2 be bad then? I'm not very well educated in AS3, but I suppose a starting point is inevitable.
