Hide Old and Reveal New Script

[kml_flashembed movie=”/labs/swf/reveal.swf” height=”150″ width=”450″ /]

I was talking the other day with a friend about a small challenge, having 2 images on stage with 2 ideas. 1- have the experience being user driven (in this case the mouse reveals one image while hiding the other) 2- Use XML for easy update. So we fired flash and the above is the visual and the code below…

[as]var xmlLoader:XML = new XML();
var firstItem:String;
var secondItem:String;

xmlLoader.ignoreWhite = true;
xmlLoader.onLoad = function ( success )

{

var base = xmlLoader.firstChild;
firstItem = base.firstChild.firstChild.firstChild
secondItem = base.firstChild.firstChild.nextSibling.firstChild
firstItem = “images/” + firstItem.toString();
secondItem = “images/” + secondItem.toString();
setImages();

}

xmlLoader.load(“xml/revealer.xml”);

Mouse.addListener(this);

onMouseMove = function()

{

mask1_mc._x = _root._xmouse;

}

function setImages()

{

var mcl1:MovieClipLoader = new MovieClipLoader();
mcl1.addListener(this);
mcl1.loadClip(firstItem, image1_mc);

var mcl2:MovieClipLoader = new MovieClipLoader();
mcl2.addListener(this);
mcl2.loadClip(secondItem, image2_mc);

}

mask1_mc._x = 212;[/as]
