  1. It works but not for a "Number" Value for my JSON Object...


    trace(objManufactur[0].key); (WORKS!)

    { "A": { "key": "Brother", "value": "40" }

    trace(objSeries[0].key); (FAILS, TypeError: Error #1010:)

    { "A": { "key": "A", "value": "40" }



  2. Hello,


    i am new to LoaderMax and would like to use it to load JSON Data with different URL Parameters (representing 3 different dataProviders) to use in

    my Project (3 Comboboxes, that should get filled with the specific JSON Data comming from a webservice).


    Could someone teach me howto do so. Maybe provide any valid Snippet for this kind of purpose?


    thanks in advance.

  3. right, thanks. So, how would i show preloaders for every content element (image) in my XML instead of having an overall preloader ?

    I would like to make the preloading progress for every single asset visible to the user.


    For the thumbnails: If containers are moved into place adding preloaders (simple progress bar) to them visualizing the loading

    progress for each thumbnail image.


    For the full images. Actually the same as for my thumbnails. If some thumbnail is selected, the container

    for holding it is moving into place and a progress bar preloader is added to the container showing

    the entire preloading progress of the full image.

  4. Hello again,


    i´ve mastered the TweenMax.allFrom to transitionIn my thumbnails.


    I have another question. I would like to setup a "container" clip for my thumbnails

    and showing that first instead of the actual thumbnail image. The thumbnails

    should be tweened in (alpha from 0 to 1) if transitionIn for the containers

    completed and sure the load is completed.


    Like building the grid of pre-created shapes for every thumbnail

    and adding the content/making it visible to it later.


    Same would be for my full images.


    Could you help?


    Thanks again!

  5. Nice! I will look at it within the next days and try to customize some things on my own and publish my results.


    There are a few more questions for me now that are not really a LoaderMax thing and are more

    general AS3 but it would be really nice if we could work it out together.


    As is descriped my goals would be to come up with some portfolio page, using LoaderMax for handling

    preloading relevated content (project thumbnails, full images, relevated text information).

    But thats just one part of it for sure. I would need some further suggestions

    on howto achieve the following (basicly thats all tweening/animating stuff i guess)


    Now as we have the thumbs to an array, we could add transition to them seperated one by one

    with help of TweenMax.allFrom for e.g to "transitionIn" when thumbs are loaded and ready

    to get onto the stage.


    something like:


    TweenMax.allFrom(thumbArray, 1, {alpha:0, x:"-10"}, .1);


    is this the correct way of how to do this?


    Further i would love to have my full images get into place ONLY when a thumbnail is clicked.

    So the first thing the visitor would see is the grid of thumbs tweening into place and secondly

    if he clicks, the relevated full image is getting loaded "preloading progress bar on the thumb"

    like in your "interactive demo 1".


    This step would be to go away from actually having a slideshow to letting the user choose

    what he will see. (slideshow would be a great "optional" thing, as the result of a button

    event or so where you can turn on/off slideshow).


    Its really great that you allready added (previous/next) button functionality cause

    that would be my next question :-)

  6. Wow, that looks completely different to what i´ve found before. That covers alot, thanks so far.

    Just now i am trying to add text to the thumbnails and full images. I would like to

    have one line of text information above the thumbnail showing the "project date"

    and another one underneath the thumbnail showing a relevated "project description".


    How would i best do so? i guess i would add a attribute to the XML node like:



    And now? Do i have to create a new array holding my descriptions and link them with my thumbnails array?


    thanks again for your help so far. Maybe we can work throughout the progress of creating some sweet

    reuseable gallery example for LoaderMax, i think it´s a popular topic some people interested in

    and i even didn´t find any good example on it, especially not regarding LoaderMax.

  7. Thanks for your really nice and detailed answer. I will look another time to the slideshow example you mentioned, i think

    it´s a different slideshow to what i have looked into so far. I will ask for help if i have more detailed questions again i think :)


    The Problem with "url" in the XML i allready noticed :)

  8. Thanks, i allready read about the Slideshow...yes. I think the "gallery" i need is quite more complex and

    i allready have problems with howto structure it down logicaly.


    Basicly i would like to make use of LoaderMax for creating my portfolio where i would need to load thumbnails and corresponding full images through XML.

    So i think XMLLoader of LoaderMax is the way to go. But i am struggling with how to manage everything logicaly like the xml it self.


    i would like to have my XML for the Portfolio Gallery structured in something like that:






    • Getting LoaderMax to load data.xml, loading thumbnails, loading full images
      Creating a Thumbnail Grid from these loaded thumbnails (pushing thumbnails and full images into seperated arrays)
      Adding Event Handlers to my thumbnails (onClick showing relevated full image)
      Having custom transitionIn/Out tweenings for the grid and full image


    I would like to come up with something similar to the Portfolio Section like on this website:
