Creating a flash gallery for swf files

is there a template out there for a flash gallery to display other swf files?
Like an image gallery, but instead of images, they are swf files (some could be interactive as well).
Thanks !

You may have to do your own searching for such a template, but you should be able to convert an image version into an swf version without too much modification.  If you are loading the files dynamically the same commands would be used.  You may just need to mask the area for displaying the swf's since their stages will not define their boundariies when they are loaded into another swf.

  • How to create an xml to load swf files in sequence?

    hello everyone
    I'm new in web design... I know how to animate in flash, using timeline, frames, layers, twins and so on... But I want to move forward so I want to create a xml to load swf files in sequence and in loop. Each swf file has 8 seconds.You can see the example here in
    I'm not a programmer but I understand how actionscript works... I hope you can help me

    you can use the urlloader class to load your xml file.  use the loader's complete event and the loader's data property to retrieve the data in your xml file.

    What I've managed so far is to copy the url of your first window, then open clipconverter, paste it in and start. I don't know how to make it check when clipconverter is ready though. I'll try working on it a bit more, but I don't think I can do the rest (I'm very inexperienced by the way, so I'm not saying it isn't possible)

  • Creating a Swipable Gallery for Tablets

    I would like to create a photo gallery that will be seen in a publication on tablets using ActionScript 3in flash CS5.5.  I have little to no ActionScript experience.   I have created one that works before but it has less images.  When I try to create this new one there are too many images to convert it into a movie clip (which is how I've done previous ones).  All the tutorials I have found say to create a movie first but with this many images it's not working.  I have also seen some that us an xml file but that's not an option as I can only upload a .swf file with the publication and it does not allow me to upload an xml file.  The other solution would be to upload the xml to a local sever and point my .swf file there but I don't know how that will work if a person is trying to view the content offline. 
    I am wondering if there is a way to use the swipe gesture to swipe to different points in the timeline.  That way I could put each of my images on the timeline and swipe to them.  I would use a tap or other gesture but I have already created the same photo gallery using jquery that is swipable and we want the same experience for people whether they are using the iPad or other device.  Or is this just above me and maybe we should look to hire someone to do this for us?
    If you have code or know of a source where there is code that I can use to get this working I would really appreciate any help!

    for an installed app, using html5 and jquery makes no sense and using flash makes sense.
    and yes, you can mimic the native swipe functionality of idevices using the following code.  there's no need to use the timeline.  that would just add an extra complication.
    private function listTouchBeginF(e:TouchEvent):void{
                        this.listP.cacheAsBitmap = true;

  • Flash .exe or swf files will not play on Vista

    I decided to learn how to create captions for flash video,
    using CS3. I tested this project and it worked fine. I could just
    double-click on the app or the swf and the captioned video played
    fine on my Mac. I only had Flash (CS3) on my Mac, so I created the
    files there.
    I then published an exe to move over to my Vista machine.
    When I double-clicked on the file, it brought up Flash Media Player
    version 9, but only showed a blank white box. Very frustrating.
    After some research, I read that Windows Vista was not
    compatible with Flash Media Player 9. Only 10.02xxx or later (I
    forget the exact version - it was long) was supposed to work with
    Vista. Since CS3 uses version 9 to pack into the executable (PC) or
    app (Mac) projector files, I thought maybe this was the problem.
    So I downloaded the demo of Flash CS4, thinking this version
    would pack version 10 into the projector and this would solve my
    While the CS3 version of my saved flash video project would
    open in Flash CS4, it would not play when I tested the movie inside
    Flash CS4. It would just show a skin at the bottom of the video
    player only (with a play/pause button), and it had moving blue bars
    on the skin like it couldn't really load either.
    I then decided to create the whole flash video with captions
    from scratch under Flash CS4. This time when I tested the movie in
    Vista, it worked fine. When I published either the projector exe or
    the html/swf combination, it worked fine. So proudly (and finally!)
    I sent the exe over to my boss. But..... you guessed it. The Flash
    Media Player 10 that started up when the file was double-clicked
    just showed a blank white screen again!
    So then I moved the exe over to another partition to test to
    see if there was some dependent directory pathway saved as part of
    the flash video file. The exe wouldn't play on the other partition!
    So I thought I was onto something. I then tried moving files that I
    thought the exe might be dependent on (although isn't the point of
    a projector to be stand alone?) to the same directory on this
    partition as the flash exe projector file.
    I ended up moving the captions.xml file, the swf files (flash
    video player skins included), and the html file that the swf file
    is supposed to be embedded in. NOTHING worked.
    I even read that someone with this problem saved his Flash
    CS4 file as a Flash CS3 file before he published it, and that
    worked for him. So I tried that too, but with no joy.
    So I am totally stumped. Does anyone out there have advice or
    even a solution?
    Much Thanks,

  • White square for .swf file in dreamweaver site

    Apologies if this is a very basic question.
    I have built a dreamweaver site and embedded a .swf file (a
    slideshow of photos created in flash) into the page.
    When I view the page online, the .swf file takes a few
    seconds to load, and while it is loading I get a white square where
    the slideshow should be (the dreamweaver and flash documents have a
    black background).
    Question - how do I either
    a) get the white square to be black
    b) get a loading bar to show that the flash video is loading
    Many thanks

    Thanks so much Tom - I now have a black background!
    The only problem is that my .swf is taking ages (8-10sec) to
    load and now its all the same it looks like nothing is happening!
    I have looked at the preloader threads and customised a
    preloader, but I can work out from the search results/threads what
    to do with it.
    How do i link the preloader into my .swf file. Do I need to
    know actionscript (I dont!) to do this? (I have Studio 8)
    The other gist I picked up from the threads is its better to
    avoid the preloader all together. I'm creating a photography
    website - hence big .swf - but do you have any hints for optimising
    the .swf - the flash publish compression is all I've used so far
    Many thanks

  • Trying to create a flash gallery

    trying to create a simple clickable slideshow.
    my problem i think is in the math. but i clickable picture buttons on right and left. the center clickable too.
    i wanna know how can i increment decrement a variable depending on direction.
    currently it seems to go in one direction which is to the right.
    also can i make an array of functions: ex- function animate[count](e:event):void
    or do functions handle arrays differently.
    sorry if i sound stupid but its been awhile doing flash.
    heres little code:
    var picture:Array = new Array();
    picture[1] = new pic1();
    picture[1].x =50;
    picture[1].y =384;
    picture[2] = new pic2();
    picture[2].x =512;
    picture[2].y =384;
    picture[2].scaleX =10;
    picture[2].scaleY =10;
    picture[3] = new pic3();
    picture[3].x =974;
    picture[3].y =384;
    var counter = 1;
        picture[1].addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, animate1)
        function animate1(e:MouseEvent):void
            picture[counter+1].x =50;
            picture[counter+1].y =384;

    Sorry I think I misread your code before when I responded. Well I think I have a working version of what you are trying to do. You can view what I made at . I created this all in straight AS3 but it should give you an idea of what I did and give you some direction to achieve what you want.

  • How do i use a flash gallery with xml file

    Hi there....
    I am trying to include a flash banner template i have downloaded into my webpage using dreamweaver CS5.
    the template comes with an XML file with it in which you can reference your own images etc..
    I understand how to inclued the Flash object into my webpage by insert-swf- and then navigating to the .swf file...
    what i am having trouble with is understanding how this refereces the XML file in the download pack as i cant find any references to it in the code??
    I am just getting the grey flash box with no images appearing when i hit play etc..
    sorry if this is a really silly question!!

    If you are using DW to insert the Flash, that could be the problem.  It is not reliable resource in that respect (my opinion, but a shared one). I normally only use Flash to create the code and copy/paste it into my html page.  Did you get an fla file with the set, and do you have Flash?
    What you should do is test the swf file by itself to make sure it works.   Normally you can link directly to the swf file to check that out.  Just type in the url to the swf file and see if it plays.  There may be some other setup required that maybe an accompanying set of instructions might explain.
    Also, if you have a link to the html file you uploaded, providing it here may help in getting things resolved.

  • How to load external photo gallery in swf file

    i've been using flash catalyst beta to create a simple 100% flash portfolio site. you can view the test here:
    my problem is that i want to link a button from the portfolio page to an external swf file (or html, both are ok) and i cannot do that in flash catalyst (probably because it's in beta).
    how can i achieve that? can it be done so the external swf opens in the portfolio page?
    please help.

    I believe you can embed the .swf file using flex code in flex builder. I just did a quick google search and came up with a few articles. I don't think there is a way to do this in Catalyst yet, but please correct me if I am wrong.
    I am also building my portfolio in Catalyst as a little project and although there are some bugs I am really enjoying the Beta
    Hope this helps!

  • How to make the stage transparent for SWF file being used in Dreamweaver

    I have a SWF file in my Dreamweaver site, that plays correctly. The problem is that the stage is white and we would like it to be transparent. Searching the archives the following advice was given:

    Yes, change this to "transparent" in ALL the places where wmode is shown
    <param name="wmode" value="opaque" />
    Second, be sure that there is in fact nothing covering the entire stage, like a big white rectangle.
    Also, what is directly behind the .swf once it's on the Web page? If the background color of that page or the <div> that the .swf is in is white..... well then then .swf can have a transparent background but then the white from the Web page just shows thru.... so there's still a white background.
    Be sure there is a non-white background on the Web page...
    Window Mode (wmode) - What's It For?
    There are three window modes.
    By default, the Flash Player gets its own hWnd in Windows. This means that the Flash movie actually exists in a display instance within Windows that lives above the core browser display window. So though it appears to be in the browser window, technically, it isn't. It is most efficient for Flash to draw this way and this is the fastest, most efficient rendering mode. However, it is drawing independently of the browser's HTML rendering surface. This is why this default mode (which is equivalent to wmode="window") doesn't allow proper compositing with DHTML layers. This is why your JavaScripted drop-down menus will drop behind your Flash movie.
    In windowless modes (like opaque), Flash Player doesn't have a hWnd. This means that the browser tells the Flash Player when and where to draw onto the browser's own rendering surface. The Flash movie is no longer being rendered on a higher level if you will. It's right there in the page with the rest of the page elements. The Flash buffer is simply drawn into whatever rectangle the browser says, with any Flash stage space not occupied by objects receiving the movie's background color.

  • Previous/next navigation for .swf files in dreamweaver

    Hello.  I would like have a previous/next navigation that allows the user to cycle trough a series of sequential .swf files (as in computer based training).  will th e image veiwer suffice (even though im not fond of the default navigation bar)?  Or better still how do i get the button to advance to the next .swf file?  Many thanks:)

    Prettyphoto uses the jquery framework for lightboxes, galleries etc.,  It also allows you play flash movies with a forward and back arrows... take a look at this samples here - it could be what you're after:
