    loading images from a database

    How do I load images from a database?

    Or actually from a folder.

    I have created a Flash nav that shows images. See: http://www.robertbrunogallery/robertbrunogallery5

    I want to be able to load these images dynamically.

    thanks

    Link did not work for me.

    However, make a movieclip, give it a instance name of container.

    Load a jpg from the folder with...

    container.loadMovie("folder/myImage.jpg");


    ...and it will load into the movieclip. As a movieclip can only hold one jpg or swf at the time, loading a new one will replace the current image.

    thanks pellepiano but . . .

    here's the link: http://robertbrunogallery.com/robertbrunogallery5/

    I have an mc with 12 frames, with a stop command on each frame, and an image on each frame.

    So if I can't load an image into keyframes on an mc, what would you suggest as a work around?

    thanks again

    Why do you need 12 keyframes. Why cant each button load its image into a empty movieclip?

    But if what you are after to load ALL images at once, you can have your movieclip with an additional 12 movieclips inside that you load the images into. Then just make the individual movieclips visible or invisible when you mouse over the buttons.


    The reason why you can not use several frames is that you can only load into movieclips that are present in the timeline.
