    Gallery Problems

    Hello everybody,

    I am trying to create a gallery where I have 3 buttons for separate sections in my gallery and each section has 15 images. What I am having trouble doing is firstly creating the 15 buttons to call up different images depending on the first(of the three) buttons clicked. I want to click button A and the 15 buttons to call up those 15 images, button B to call up a different 15 images and so on.

    I have just loaded 15 different buttons for each section but I am sure there must be a neater way using variables...

    Now I use the loadMovie action to call up my images but I dont know how to move the position... they always load at 0,0 in relation to the main time line?? Any ideas on how to shift them?

    Thanks in advance.

    hi ...
    .. it comes to be that u r in deep **** .. lol .. dont worry ... follow this ..

    u got yer 3 buttons at the first frame ..

    .. place 15 Empty Movie Clips (be them just rectangles) .. have them named like m1, m2, m3, .... , m15 ... insdie the first button have this:

    on(release){
    click = "A";
    }

    in the 2nd one:

    on(release){
    click = "B";
    }

    on(release){
    click = "C";
    }

    ...... ok .. now have a swich statement in the frame Script:

    switch(click){
    case "A":
    m1.loadMovie("URL to your jpeg");
    m2.loadMovie("URL to your jpeg");
    m3.loadMovie("URL to your jpeg");
    .
    .
    .
    m5.loadMovie("URL to your jpeg");
    break;
    case "B":
    m1.loadMovie("URL to your jpeg");
    m2.loadMovie("URL to your jpeg");
    m3.loadMovie("URL to your jpeg");
    .
    .
    .
    m5.loadMovie("URL to your jpeg");
    break;
    case "C":
    m1.loadMovie("URL to your jpeg");
    m2.loadMovie("URL to your jpeg");
    m3.loadMovie("URL to your jpeg");
    .
    .
    .
    m5.loadMovie("URL to your jpeg");
    break;
    }

    .. thess about it .. the above code can be compressed very much, but i have just given u the complete algo.

    Thanks alot I will try it out and see how it goes.

    How can I compress the code?

    And now all that leaves is how to move the loaded jpeg from 0,0??

    Cheers
