I'm not an actionscripter but an artist with limited actionscript knowledge. For over two weeks now I've been trying to get a piece of code together but keep running into endless brick walls. I would have thought this would be easy but there hasn't been anyone out there capable of showing me the final solution so far. I'm looking for a result similar to this tutorial http://www.republicofcode.com/tutorials/flash/xmlimagegallery/ but with a few specific changes. I haven't uploaded my attempts at the code because it probably will complicate things. The source files are located at the bottom of this link: http://www.republicofcode.com/tutorials/flash/xmlimagegallery/7.php What I am trying to acheive is the above gallery but which specifically does the following when a thumbnail is pressed: - Show the preloader (whilst keeping the current image on screen). - When the preloader has finished then fade the current image to alpha=0 - Slight Pause - After the pause fade the next image in to alpha=100. - In addition I've been trying to get the thumbnails alpha to be 50%. Then on onRollover and onRelease to set the alpha to 100%. Similar to this: http://www.republicofcode.com/tutorials/flash/imagegallery/ If anyone can actually do this then please post. But don't post unless you have tested and confirmed it.
