Hello and thanx for reading.

Im currently in a project where i intend to achieve the same results as this page you all might be familiar by now: http://brook-pifer.com/

Since im a pseudo-newbie, i cannot work it out.

You guys|gals know if theres a tutorial or component with this or similar results? Fullscreen image (loaded via xml i presume) and with the elements (menu, etc) auto adjusting to the screen size as you scale it?.

Any advice or tip will help a lot.
Thanx!

well, you would just make a normal site out, and then set the size to be 100% x 100%.

thats what i did to the site im working on,

Thanx for the tip. I was aware of that way of making things work. But like it happens on the site youre working on, images take forever to download. If you import them via xml its more dynamic and loads content on demmand....but i cant figure out how to program that like in brook-pifer.com

Thanx again mate.

well the way i set mine up is to load all at the beginning, where as theirs is set to load each invidivually when its brought to screen. i guess its just preference :)

if your wanting to use xml to load them and dont know where to start, check out this tutorial (http://www.actionscript.org/resources/articles/571/1/How-to-Load-Data-and-Use-it-From-XML/Page1.html)

Excelent way to get started...i actually learned how to import via XML. Thanx!

Now i just need the AS code so the image scales up or down to fit the screen resolution, and how to set a preloader (not for slideshows or galeries...just simple xml one image preloader.
Gonna browse the forums | tutorials...any shortcut is welcome.
Thanx again!
