this is a great effort for making flash more used in skins, thank you...
we should make a post or something, where we can have all these "snippets" collected
I've seen a lot of requests for this lately so i took the time (all day today in fact) to put together an example playlist for the flash scripter. Script comes complete with preschool like graphics! I know its ugly but it gives you pretty much everything you need to get a playlist started in flash. Includes...
-"clickable" list entries
-UP, DOWN, PAGE DOWN, and PAGE UP command buttons
-BACK LIST button( returns you to the currently playing song)
-SCROLLER! Huge deal for me because i had never figured out how to make one prior
I hope this helps someone out cause i know there have been lots of questions about how to make this work!
to use this BACK UP your current audio_player.skin then throw all the files into a road runner skin. Source is included in swishmax format.
personally i didnt notice any speed issues implenting this i a sample skin,
but i think it depends on your hardware, if thecode is optimized and graphic use...
There wasent any difference running this in my sample skin, prior to running a complete
flash based skin
-when you press a button
-when there's a change in the CUSTOMPL label (meaning the song changed or you loaded a new playlist, etc)
Flash only really gets speed intensive when you're splitting data or making mathematical equations AND using heavy graphics effects.
