  • ALBUMART of the specified item

    Hi all
    I'm trying to make my own flash skin but I have a problem with making the list...
    The problem is I can't get the ALBUMART of the specified item! ALBUMART shows only the image of the playing item but not the specified...
    I can get the path to it with TRACKPATHXXX but I don't think it's possible to get the name of the image with Action Scripts...

    The basic idea - when you scroll the list, album cover changes at the same time(like with non-flash skins)

    Can anyone help with it?

      I mean playlist in audio skin
      I use Macromedia Flash. I've tryied to use JSFL to access to the file system but I don't know how to send global variable to the jsfl and back to the flash and how to run run jsfl from the flash.
      simple example - tracing 'some text' by using JS - MMExecute("fl.trace('some text')") doesn't work

      Yes, I see - you've done it in your sonique evolution skin, but how did you do that? I mean what the logic of getting album path for each track?

        Ok, I got it - it's not possible to get the access to the file system by using flash... it needs to develop external script - it's too bad for me

          i'm not using an external script, but i'm not using flash either i'm using swishmax because its lightyears easier than flash when creating skins. The data i used to determine the art path is the LISTPOSTRACKPATHXXX label i created. the currenly playing track is list position 1 and every list entry after that gets a number, so if you wanted to get the album art for list position 2 it would be available in LISTPOSTRACKPATH2 etc etc. The only issue with doing this is its not very speed friendly (at least in my implementations). I'm considering removing it from my skin in fact.

            hmm... ok, I can get path to specific position like "c:\music\artist1\album1\"(this folder contains jpg cover) but how can I get the name of the image to display?
