[SOLVED] Set scaleMode based on image aspect

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to get my slideshow to automatically set the scaleMode for an imageloaders content based on the aspect ratio of the image but it's proving difficult.


For example if the image is a portrait I'd like it to scale proportionalInside and if it's landscape I'd like it to be proportionalOutside.


Trouble is, I don't think the loader is aware of the image's dimensions until after the content has been loaded at which point the scaleMode needs to have already been set. Is this correct? If that's the case is it even possible to do what I'm trying to do?

Scratch this. Not sure why I assumed that the scaleMode has to be set prior to load but this is apparently not the case. By doing the aspect check after the load is complete I can attain the result I need. Here's a code snippet for anyone trying to do the same thing:


public function ssLoadComplete(evt:Event):void{
		var cntnt:Array = LoaderMax.getContent(evt.target.name);
		for (var i:int = 0; i < cntnt.length; i++) {
			if (cntnt[i] is ContentDisplay) {
				if (cntnt[i].width > cntnt[i].height){
					cntnt[i].scaleMode = "proportionalOutside";
                                               cntnt[i].crop = true;
					cntnt[i].scaleMode = "proportionalInside";
				var content:ContentDisplay = cntnt[i];
				cntnt[i].fitWidth = 1024;
				cntnt[i].fitHeight = 576;



XML just looks like this:
