Pls help with dynamic photo gallery

Hey everyone,

I really need help making a photo gallery in my website. I want the gallery section to brings up a bunch thumbnails dynamically for users to choose from and when they click on the thumb it will load the actual image.

So far, I can only get the thumbnails to load.

_root.xSpacing = 270;
_root.numOfPics = 3;

pathToImages = “images/image”

for (i=0; i<_root.numOfPics; i++) {
holder_mc = this.createEmptyMovieClip (“emptyClip”+i, i);
holder_mc.loadMovie(pathToImages+ i + “.jpg”);
holder_mc._x = (_root.xSpacing*i)

Any ideas?

I thought this might help you

Thanks for the quick reply. I did check out that tutorial many times but I still can’t figure out how I can click on one of the thumbnail and it load the correspondent real size image (ie. if I click on thumb0.jpg, it will load image0.jpg).

Maybe I’m in way over my head, what I’m trying to accomplish is something similar to

Thanks plonker! for pointing me in the right direction. Hopefully, after going through the tutorial I can get my photo gallery to work. It’s going to be the first time writing/using xml for me in flash.


Enjoy, glad to help!
