Image Scroller Basic

Published on May. 14th 2009
You need to have Adobe Flash Player installed in order to view the component. You can download it from here:


Highly customizable image menu scroller, XML customizable images & urls & text, editable settings through the FLA file.

You can customize the following variables:

- scrollerWidth and scrollerHeight
- imageWidth and imageHeight
- imageSpacing
- minScrollSpeed & maxScrollSpeed
- scrollEaseIn & scrollEaseOut
- inColor & outColor & coloringSpeed
- preloaderSize

- loadSmoothed
- showDescription
- useMirror

- set the menu horizontal or vertical

All the code is in the first frame of the first Layer of "image scroller container" movieclip.

You can specify the images and target urls through the XML file. Put images at any dimensions, they are automatically resized. All images should have the same sizes.
Set the target URLs to point to different sections of your website, or add your own code for clicking on each image instead of getURL method.

Installation instructions for:

The Image Scroller Basic FX component is available for Flash CS4, CS5, CS5.5 and requires Flash Player 10 or later. To use this product in Flash you need the MXP file that is available only in the paid package.

You can see an example of how to install a component in Flash Professional here.

In this video you will see:
- how to create an instance of the component on the stage: from the Components panel (Ctrl+F7) drag & drop the component on the stage
- how to give a name to an instance for further use in ActionScript: click on the component instance on the stage and from the Properties panel (Ctrl+F3) enter a name in the text input
- how to access the properties of the component (read or modify) during different moments of your Flash application

Any property of the component could be accessed that way. The names of the properties are identical with the ones from the settings.xml file. The properties of the component can be any of these three types: Number, String, Boolean. We assume it’s intuitive of which type each property is.

Warning! Setting the parameters of the component in the Component Inspector window (Shift+F7) and in the same time having a settings.xml file populated with different values for each property, the properties from the settings.xml file will have priority (meaning that a parameter set in the Component Inspector will be ignored if that parameter is also defined in the XML file).

For now, this component does not dispatch events, but stay tuned for an update.

FlashXML Support


Open the Actions Panel (F9) and use the AS3 code below:

import flash.display.Loader;

var _newSWFfile:Loader = new Loader();
_newSWFfile.contentLoaderInfo.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE , stopAfterLoad);
_newSWFfile.load(new URLRequest(“image scroller xml.swf”));

function stopAfterLoad(e:Event):void
{ addChild(_newSWFfile); //adds the content of the loader to the stage

The component was implemented without settings.xml. However, you must know that we no longer offer support for the basic components, and we would rather recommend you to use one of our FX components instead, which is very similar to this one, namely Image Scroller FX. You can find it on this page.

These are some awsome products you have and I really interested in using them. I want to know if it’s possible to make the image scroller auto scroll?


FlashXML Support


Thank you for showing interest in our products. Sorry, but we no longer offer support for our basic components. However, you could use another component of ours that is very similar to this one and that has this functionality and many others implemented, such as Image Scroller FX.
