Dynamic Flash Vertical Scrolling Link List with XML

As seen at activeden. I’ve fixed it up a lot and made it much easier to incorporate into your own files.

A link list. Vertically scrolling list of links or just words. Scrolls and wraps automatically and interactively. Reads an external XML file containing just titles and paths and creates an interactive click-able link list!

  1. I’m interested in seeing how the .fla file is put together for the dynamic vertical scrolling list with XML. However, I can’t open the linklist.fla file with Flash 8. What am I doing wrong. Thanks!

  2. Hello evereyone!
    How I can do to this flash not be a circular??
    i.e. If I have 1 or 5 items in the xml, how I can stop the movement of the list when the last item is showed?
    Bye! Thanks!

  3. Instead of having text, can I have thumbnails instead? So that when clicked the user will be redirected to another site. At the same time when the user mouseover, a short description of the image will be provided? Thanks for answering my query.

  4. it’s cool. but im not sure if this works on my site.. can i promote this in my two blog sites for a certain period then get one for free? šŸ˜€

  5. i am new to web design… so I may ask dumb questions…

    can i change the colors of this?

    also, is there a way to incorporate this on an html page?

    thanks for your time!

  6. would you be willing to walk me through it? It’s been hell trying to figure it out on my own.

    1. @kristina – I’m happy to answer any questions.
      Open the file in flash and select the movie clip on the stage and double click it to edit it’s contents. Then select the item you’d like to change the color of and edit the color in the properties window. Then search embedding flash in html and you will find plenty of examples. I prefer swfobject. This post I wrote about flashvars will even explain the basics of embed codes https://52.25.247.172.xip.io/circlecube/2008/05/tutorial/flashvar-tutorial/, Thanks for reading
