Hello Flash forum,
This is my first post here, as mostly have posted on FCP forum.
On this homepage SWF that I built [ http://www.storevault.com/ ]
The client wants the header [ The Perfect Fit... ] to change each time the page refreshes.
So, first view of the page would be "The perfect fit...", then on reload, it would be, "New storage solutions..."
I am not very good with actionscripts, and am having trouble trying to find an easy solution for this. I have investigated Arrays, and even was given some code from Dynamic Drive forum which was this:
The basic principle is you load all of the text/items into and array. Then use the Math.random() function to randomly choose an index for the item.
If you want to hardcode the values, you could do something like this:
var slogans = array("Text 1", "Text 2", "Text 3");
var randomNumber = Math.ceil(Math.random()*3);
text_field.text = slogans[randomNumber]
I don't even know where to put this code, would it go at the end where the actions tell the movie to stop?
Is there a reload function that will direct the movie to play the alternate text?
There has to be an easy way to do this, and good karma to whomever can enlighten me!
