The easiest thing is if you look at my swf: http://www.joesmalley.com/photography.swf
Ive built a dynamic photo gallery which works from an XML database. The database contains the various gallery titles, the photo image paths and their captions.
The first page of the gallery is a thumbnail index page (lots of small preview images of the photos). The thumbnails load up one by one, they are only 1kb each but there are hundreds so takes some time. If a user clicks on one, the thumbnail movieclip is hidden with (._visible) and the photo page is shown, also with (._visible).
The problem is, the thumbnails are still being loaded in the background, so the chosen photo is not downloaded+shown until all the thumbnails have loaded.
What kind of code do I need to place on the thumbnail’s “onRelease” function to cancel the parent “make thumbnails” function ive made?
I know this is complicated but please help this is driving me insane!!
