Flash Scrolling Images loop with link

Posted on 2004-10-05

I want to be able to say scroll three images.  But always be able to add another as many times as i like to the loop, so i could end up with 50 say.

When the mouse goes over it, the scrolling will pause. When the mouse goes to the right the images will scroll right and vica versa to the left.  Clicking the image of choice will go to the attached link, which i obviously need to be linked within the array.

I have seen this effect on many people's sites and really need to know how to do it!

Here is another Way to do the same thing but I just though that two options where better than one.  

http:theyac.org/experts/slider4.fla
http:theyac.org/experts/slider5.fla

I have more variations of these if you want.
But theses are the closest to what you asked for.

Thanks

Here's another option:
http://www.intensewd.com/resources/flash/scrollingimages.aspx

This one lets you have groups of images so if you get to a really high amount you can divide them up into smaller blocks.

the last link is good ben, but as i am not that used to flash yet i would not have the skills to change this into a vertical scroller which is what i need.  If you have any advice or links for a vertical scroller, it would be much appreciated.

yeah He is right.  Sorry I didn't get your other replys.  Download the files again I think you should be able to open the slider4 now.  That is the one I think you really want.  it automatically scrolls when your mouse isn't over it.  and then scrolls depending on postition when mouse is over it.

Thanks
