View Full Version : resizing slideshows

Sep 20th, 2007, 03:48 AM
Hello Everyone:

Not sure if this belongs in Javascript or Flash forum so I sent it both places. Please forgive me as I am confused.

I've been struggling with this for weeks now. I'm trying to resize photos within a slideshow using Flash. Sometimes the photos line up where they are supposed to be (centered), other times they don't. You can see what I mean at the following page. http://www.caffreytree.com/slideshow.html

All photos and flash are in the same folder. I don't understand it! Can anyone help??? The following code is used within flash...

spacing = 10;
containerMC._alpha = 0;

MovieClip.prototype.loadPic = function(pic){
_root.containerMC._alpha = 0;
_root.onEnterFrame = function(){
var t = containerMC.getBytesTotal(), l = containerMC.getBytesLoaded();
if (t != 0 && Math.round(l/t) == 1){
var w = containerMC._width + spacing, h = containerMC._height + spacing;
border.resizeMe(w, h);
delete _root.onEnterFrame;
MovieClip.prototype.resizeMe = function(w, h){
var speed = 3;
this.onEnterFrame = function(){
this._width += (w - this._width)/speed;
this._height += (h - this._height)/speed;
if( Math.abs(this._width-w)<1){
this._width = w;
this._height = h;
_root.containerMC._x = this._x - this._width/2 + spacing/2;
_root.containerMC._y = this._y - this._height/2 + spacing/2;
_root.containerMC._alpha = 100;
delete this.onEnterFrame;

The following is what is used on the thumbnail to click and call the photos...


Can anyone help?? Also, would Javascript be better for something like this instead of using Flash at all and how can I do it?

Thanks so much.
