This example shows that it is possible to add graphical elements to create custom buttons and other skinning elements. This example utilizes a Slideshow component (500x30 pixels) with custom buttons and a dynamic text field that indicates the percentage of download. The caption feature is also used in this example and FlashVars are used to dynamically enter the path for the XML playlist.
- Using your Flash 8/CS3/CS4 authoring software, open an existing FLA that includes the Slideshow component, or install the MXP and open a new document, then add the Slideshow component to the stage.
- You can import graphics to the stage, or you can use the various tools within Flash to create custom graphical elements like the buttons in the example below.
- You should change the color of the background and resize it to fit all of the objects on the stage.
- Once you are finished modifying the FLA you should save your project, publish or export a network ready SWF, and embed it in your webpge.
