View Full Version : HELP!!! XML menu using Duplicate MC - scrolling issue

09-03-2004, 04:45 PM
Please help:

I did not create this file on my own, so I won't take credit for it, but I'm really trying to learn from it and modify it.

I found a nice source file online for an XML controlled menu that uses the "duplicate" to create the menu based on the xml nodes. I really like the way this works OTHER than one major flaw:

The scroll bar only works if the MC is placed at the TOP of the flash movie. This is also true if you try to load the menu into a targetMC within another .swf file. The scrolling get all jacked up.

I'm hoping someone can help modify this file so the scrolling isn't tied to the _y position of the movie OR someone can get this to scroll using a scrollpane or scroll bar component of some kind.

I've included the source files, including a test of when loading the menu into a targetMC of another .swf, how the menu gets messed up.

Any help would definitely be appreciated.

There has got to be some Actionscript pro out there who could offer some help...

Anyone, anyone?

Ok, This is WAY into this post but i dl'd it yesterday while looking for myself and fixed it so that you can reposition it and load it into an mc.

on the instance of dragSlider there is a line of code:
bounds = _parent.bound_box.getBounds (_root);

change the to:
bounds = _parent.bound_box.getBounds();

Removing the _root seems to work beautifully. Hope it's helped someone.
