Ok, kind of a 3-in-1 bit, here. I was originally laying out an image loader/viewer clip that I could easily plop into a Flash document. And I did, and it’s in here. Stand-alone, xml-loaded image viewer clip.
On the way, however, I wound up with a bare-bones panel that seemed like just such an excellent place to start when creating anything where an unspecified number of images has to be displayed, that I couldn’t help including it here. The bare-bones panel successively loads images specified in an xml file, scales and lays them out based on some conveniently placed variables in the fla file like thumbHeight, thumbWidth, etc., and automatically adds a scrollbar when needed.
The bare-bones panel seemed like such an easy place to start from, I whipped up a panel that just loads images specified in an xml file to be used as links, along with captions and URLs, and threw that in here, too.
Not for the totally Flash squeamish, but seemed like something some other Flash Denners might appreciate.
