iPhone Swipe Menu

Recommended Posts

Need help creating an iPhone style menu, similar to Angry Birds or Cut the Rope.

It needs to use either Adobe Gesture Events or Greensock ThrowProps.


I tried using the ThrowProps example, but I need it to stop on each menu item.


The code below uses swipe left/right Gesture Events and TweenLite, but I need help adding an overshoot to the first and last menu item.


Maybe by adding an 'if else' statement.


import com.greensock.*;
import com.greensock.easing.*

var offsetX:Number = 440;

// Swipe Gesture
Multitouch.inputMode = MultitouchInputMode.GESTURE;

stage.addEventListener (TransformGestureEvent.GESTURE_SWIPE, swipeHandler);

function swipeHandler(event:TransformGestureEvent):void {


// swipe left
case -1: {
TweenLite.to(mc, 1, {x:mc.x - offsetX, ease:Expo.easeOut});

// swipe right
case 1: {
TweenLite.to(mc, 1, {x:mc.x + offsetX, ease:Expo.easeOut});

stage.addEventListener(Event.ENTER_FRAME, traceXPosition);

function traceXPosition(evt:Event) {
trace("movieClip Position: " + mc.x);

Just wondering, did you see the Panel-based scrolling demo that is shown in FAQ # 8 here:

http://www.greensock.com/throwprops/ ?


You can download the source and it doesn't require ThrowProps.

It will allow you to swipe between panels and if you try to flick beyond the last or first panel, it will bounce back.

yes I saw that, but I need it to be used with a movie clip menu instead of loading in using XML.

I was just in the middle of working it out, so thank you for posting this.
