how do i externally load images into a container--with auto load , into my flash movie?
Posted on 2008-10-25
i have a flash gallery, It consists of 16 images which i want to load automatically into their own containers.
Right now i am using a loader component, but it seems that since i have 16 instances of loader components on the stage it is not correctly working. (only in firefox is works.)
---I have the loader parameters set to auto load 'on' (that is fine) ---> the scaleContent in the parameters is set to 'true' ---this basically resizes the image to the size of the loader on the stage.. (this works fine BUT only in firefox) when i use test on IE the scaleContent does not work,, --->> the images load as the true size which is bigger than the loader component size.
And i cannot resize the thumbs for other reasons,. That is why i need the scaleContent to work so that the image being loaded will resize to the Loader component size.
Thus, this is why i would like to try a movie clip container as an alternative, thinking that it will not have the same problem as the 16 instances of the Loader Component.
so, my question is how do i create these containers so that they are
1. auto load the image
2. scaleContent like the Loader Component.
