How to place a runtime created movie into a scrollpane

Hi,

I have created a new movie clip using             
     mc=createEmptyMovieClip("mc1", 10);      
     mc.loadmovie("xxxxx");

then i want this movie to be loaded in a scrollpane

    scrollPane.contentPath = "mc1" ;

but i get an error that mc1 is not found in the c: drive directory.

Any 1 can help ?

Hi keoktay,

I tried this procedure and it works for me. It will work for you too. Follow these simple procedures :

1) Create a movieclip named mc1 on the main timeline of the stage (say a rectagular shaped one).

2) Double click this Movieclip and go into the timeline of this movieclip, now select the rectangle shape graphic , press F8 and create a movieclip and give it an instance name of my_mc.

3) In the current timeline write the action :

my_mc.loadMovie("1stpartofcode.jpg");

- Replace the jpg file with the name of the file you want to load.

4) Now goto the main timeline and delete the mc1 movieclip from the stage.

5) Press Ctrl+L and in the library right click on the mc1 movieclip and select "Linkage..."

6) Click the "Export for Actionscript" checkbox and specify mc1 as the identifier.

7) Now come to the main timleine and place this action :

my_scroll.setScrollContent("mc1");

This will load your file into the scroll pane as you would like to do.

Hope this helps !

Thanks,
KP

Hi ,

Have tried this
    scrollPane.contentPath = "_level10.mc1" ;


However, the picture is loaded not inside the scrollPane , but side by side with the scrollPane.

I read the documentation that scrollPane.contentPath="" set to a file or url or the indentifier of the movieclip . How can i dynamically set the linkage indentifier for the created movieclip ?

If there is a special reason behind your decision to load external image into empty dynamically created movieclip?

you can load image directly into ScrollPane component:

scrollPane.contentPath = "myImage.jpg";

You have also events 'ScrollPane.complete'  and 'ScrollPane.progress' to control the progress of loading external media.
