MenuFour is XML driven Flash menu/slideshow crossover component. For each menu button you can define different background image or MovieClip that will be displayed when mouse is over button, plus additional background that will be shown when none of buttons is selected. Backgrounds can be external images (jpg, gif, png) and .swf files, or library items (Bitmaps or MovieClip’s), and you can combine any variations in one menu. For MovieClip’s or .swf files you can also define actions to be executed on MouseOver, MouseOut, Selected and Deselected state. Actions could be standard timeline actions (play, stop…), or any other custom function. You can pass parameter to actions too, so you can use gotoAndPlay method for example.
MenuFour is developed in pure ActionScript3 (FP9), with no graphics assets, which makes it very configureble.You can set over 30 different parameters in XML file, including MovieClip actions and parameters. Also, most button parameters (like text color or blend mode) can be defined separately for each button.
Button clicks can be caught by event listener. You can read all properties of selected button and any button node attribute in XML file, including your own, custom attributes. For simple link buttons, you can set URL and target window directly in XML file.
