  • slider problem

    Is there a possibilety to have more then the standart 21 slider graphics for the sliders, especialy the SONGPOS, VIDEOPOS and VOLUME slider... my problem is my slider is 560px lang so it makes steps of 28px and that looks ****y! would like to have it some more "fluently"....

    thanx

    Not sure if this will intrest you, but you can do really "fluent" things in flash. (At least with volume) However, I don't think you can do it with sliders because they don't send out variables.

      You can use the TRACKTIME and CURRENTTRACKTIME variables in flash to calculate the position of song/video ... for the volume there's also a variable.. there's currently no variables for most of the other sliders, but it would be easy to add them...

      Regarding the steps, I just made them the same as in MediaCar (compatibility).. but I could easily add a parameter into the slider style definition to set the number of steps to use with the slider (allowing you to use any number of images)... I still have to improve on the drawing of the background to (hopefully) get rid of flickering -- I have done a lot of research for this but VB sucks ...

        Would be great if you'd add the ability to set the number of steps of a slider!

            Both Dinasty and CDR have done this in their flash skins, You can probably ask a little help from them.

                  It's probably best if you see it for yourself. I will through something together for you tonight and post it here to show you how it works and also the code to set the position of the song ect..

                    EDIT: also, is there a way to make a swf go over (instead of under) a playlist? or can i actually embed the playlist in the swf and just layer it underneath?

                      Well I'm not able to get to my home pc tonight so i will post it tomorrow for ya.

                      As for the placing the flash over the playlist... unfortunantlly there is no way to do it that i'm aware of. The only thing to do is to port the playlist over to flash which can be tedious to say the least.

                      If you are really interested in that I can add it to the flash FAQ thread that i started a while back.

                      EDIT: Now that i think about it if all you need is the playlist in flash, it shouldn't be that hard. It's the directory list that are a pain, especially if you want sliders and stuff like that.
