Here’s an AS3 version, use anyway you like :)

Drag the “EasyLoader” MovieClip to the stage and position and size it any way you like.

Repeat for each “holder”.

Cut any “holders” from the stage you don’t want.

Give your “holder” the proper instance name

That’s it, no xml…

As you can see it’s pretty different than AS2 . Treat the loader variable like the empty movieclip you’d normally create.

edit: MB’s way is good too

What about my multiple personalities? I consider them different people. Can they each make an entry?

Actually the main reason we pushed this out though is that we’re working on some new ways to market files > namely by marketing the previewed sites :-) I’ve got this plan to put some of the best stuff onto Creattica. Not sure if it’ll work, but you know, always trying to think of new ways to promote files!

Would it be possible to only add the header if the page is loaded outside of the file’s main page?

I like the idea of dragging additional holders onto the stage, but I honestly don’t know what that would take.

I’d probably set it up with 3 holders on the stage that were all instances of the same MovieClip stored in the library. Then you just drag the MovieClip from the library to the stage to add more and resize and place as you please. And you could cut them from the stage as well. You’d probably have to give each holder a generic instance name as well (“holder1, “holder2”, etc.).

then “holder1” would load in xml node 1, etc.

if they insist on doing this why not have one of those stupid annoying little msn style js popups in the bottom right which pops up without otherwise distorting the way the file displays (except for being there obviously)

Or just put the banner in a div instead of an iframe and float it over the other div.

Colin Moock’s books are awesome. Great for learning and reference!

The thing I don’t like about some books is how they don’t use real world stuff. For example, I’m never going to build a zoo, how about building a full flash small business website instead and showing me how to do it?

I also think things are not explained as well as they could be in most books. I used to train others in management and the most important thing I always kept in mind was this:

Always assume the person you’re training has no clue what you’re talking about. This and only this philosophy can put yourself in the shoes of a noob.
