Scrolling navigation needs to unload sections and load up the "ma

Posted 15 October 2007 - 12:04 PM


Hi,

I've got a scrolling menu on the left side of my swf. It gets loaded from the a swf underneath.

On the top banner I have 4 buttons.
The first is just a link, but the other three navigate into the main.swf that loads on the second level.

For some reason when I'm going through the site from the top menu and I want themain swf to come back I click on the scrolling nav to go back to the main start.

But the weird thing is that you have to jump through the 3 sections in the timeline in order to get back to the start.
I attached the following so that you could look at what I'm talking about.

I need to be able to navigate from one of the 4 section to be able to go back to the Nav main mc.

Link to files

In need of help...

Thanks

I finally got it working well enough to see what you were talking about. I'd be happy to hunt down the problem for you, but for time's sake, please tell me where those thumbnails' navigation is occurring (file, clip, frame, layer).

So far though, nice work on that. It looks great!

Hey Thanks Alot for your trouble.

The thumbnail that you are looking for are in the audiotins.fla inside mainTarget, scrollingPane, TwoScrollingMovies and there all just two layers so the action script happens on the layers that are farthest to the top.

I guess you can see how it mess' up if you click on merchants and try to go back to the scrolling thumbnails, it jumps to the next frame label instead and then all the way until it hits contact.

See I need it to just simply gotoAndPlay the labels that it is supposed 2.
Any ways it'd be a big help.

Thanks,
Brandon

I also added this code on the TwoScrollingMovies mc:
on (release) {
	if (_root.main._currentframe==21) {
		_root.main.gotoAndPlay(22);
	} else {
		_root.main.play("audioTins");
		trace(testing);
	}
}



But it won't load up the sections. Is there something I could do to get it loading?

My apologies for the delayed response; things have been hectic around here ...

The error is in the populateTitles function. In particular, this portion:

if (_root.main._currentframe==21){
	_root.main.gotoAndPlay(22);
}else{
	_root.main.play();
}

With that code, those scroll buttons will only work from frame 21. Is there a reason for that if statement? Perhaps you could lose that entire statement, and leave only this portion:

_root.main.gotoAndPlay(22);
