    Loading images at random from library

    Hi there, I started to use flash again! I created my project of loading in images at random using an external folder. I used this:

    var myRand = Math.floor(Math.random(42)*10+1);

    PlaceHolder.loadMovie("Slide"+myRand+".jpg");

    It works great . . .but then I wanted to put the swf on my site and realised I don't have the folder of images so I tried to sort this and put them into the library, used some attachMovie aclls and couldn't get it to do the same thing.

    what am I missing here?
    How do I load all of my images into my library and call them to the place holder?

    thanks!

    Hi,

    You can load it lke so, you must give the images an AS Linkage name which can be found in the library itself

    PHP Code:
    import flash.display.BitmapData;

    var 
    myRand:Number Math.floor(Math.random(42) * 10 1);
    trace("Slide" myRand);

    var 
    imageBitData:BitmapData BitmapData.loadBitmap("Slide" String(myRand));

    PlaceHolder.attachBitmap(imageBitData,this.getNextHighestDepth());

    or you could alternatively use your original code if you create the folder you need put it online and put the images there too
