Dynamic Scrolling Text
Posted on 2002-05-06
I am designing a section for a site, and I what to know what is the best solution for the following:
I want a horizontal scrolling nav bar that uses variables to display the items in the menu.
- a selection of about twenty names will be inserted into a variable/variables, and displayed between two arrows that scroll them from left to right, or right to left
- I want to use a solution that can be maintained very easily, by being able to update a variable, or external text file on the server.
- After you scroll the nav bar and find what you are looking for, you would click on the menu item, and the appropriate information would be displayed directly below...
I am looking to change the content using only ActionScript and not by clicking on a button to launch a MC.
The most important thing about this .swf is that I can easily update the menu information and the description that will appear below...
a detailed responce is welcomed...
P.S. no need to hold anything back do to lack of experience
