Post 3+ Months Ago

here's my before-xmas wishlist...
i'm making a site right now and this is what i want it to do...
i want the flash document to:
randomly pick images from one of several folders
resize those images to thumbnail size in such a way that i can order them in a movieclip
and, when clicked, i want those thumbnails to go to the named keyframe that is the same name as the folder they're in...

not sure if it's possible. if not, i can just make the thumbnails and determine what keyframe they go to by a line in an xml doc or something...

but, hey, if anyone's got ideas... on any of these things...
even just how to resize dynamically loaded images with flash...

Hmmm. I'm sure someone else will give you better 'specifics', but I'm thinking...

    generate random number

    select case function to establish a folder/frame name

    load image into MC

    adjust height, width, x and y of MC

    attach onPress, or onRelease function to MC

    timeline gotoAndStop("name")

eh? :D
