Hi,

I have a simple video gallery set up connected to an xml file to load my assets (video path, title, description).  Rather than using small thumbnails to change the videos and corresponding info, I have two arrow buttons that should change the videos in order back and forth.  (so 0 > 1 > 2 > 0 etc, and backwards with the left arrow)

My assets are connected and I know this is simple and I have learned it but I am having trouble with my assets changing to my button click events.  I was thinking of using if statements (which work on the first 2 assets but then fail after that).

protected function button1_clickHandler(event:MouseEvent):void
            {
                if (myVideo.source == "assets/media/" + myData[0].path;
                myLabel1.text == myData[0].desc;
                titleLabel1.text == myData[0].title;)
                {
                myVideo.source = "assets/media/" + myData[1].path;
                myLabel1.text = myData[1].desc;
                titleLabel1.text = myData[1].title;
                }

in my head i was thinking of then using "else if" myData[1] then it changes to [2] like this:

else if (myVideo.source = "assets/media/" + myData[1].path;
                myLabel1.text = myData[1].desc;
                titleLabel1.text = myData[1].title;)
            { myVideo.source = "assets/media/" + myData[2].path;
                myLabel1.text = myData[2].desc;
                titleLabel1.text = myData[2].title; }

but i seem to be doing something wrong.

can anyone help me with the code to loop them all together?

thanks!

sounds a little hardcoded number wise !

why not use variables, knowing how many are loaded (store that in a variable) and increment up to the count and decrement back toward 0 or 1

this way your source code does not need to change if you go from 3 videos to say 30

$10.   I bought it a few years ago since it was AS3. His stuff comes with SWC's so you should be able to plop it into Flex / FB

the main point is that for chump change you can learn a lot about loading from XML and displaying different media types (movies, pictures, swfs)

Thanks for the help, and in any other situation I would probably not be doing it this way, but it's for a school project so I don't want to buy or use other scripts like that.

Therefore the hardcoding also isn't an issue for now because I have a set number of videos which won't be changing for the time being.  I really just wanted to know if I was using the if statements correctly?? At the moment I'm getting errors at every line that has "else if" written on it.... here is the full function as I have it now:

protected function button1_clickHandler(event:MouseEvent):void
            {
                if (myVideo.source == "assets/media/" + myData[0].path;
                myLabel1.text == myData[0].desc;
                titleLabel1.text == myData[0].title;)
                {
                myVideo.source = "assets/media/" + myData[1].path;
                myLabel1.text = myData[1].desc;
                titleLabel1.text = myData[1].title;
                }
           
                else if (myVideo.source = "assets/media/" + myData[1].path;
                myLabel1.text = myData[1].desc;
                titleLabel1.text = myData[1].title;)
            { myVideo.source = "assets/media/" + myData[2].path;
                myLabel1.text = myData[2].desc;
                titleLabel1.text = myData[2].title; }
           
            else if (myVideo.source = "assets/media/" + myData[2].path;
                myLabel1.text = myData[2].desc;
                titleLabel1.text = myData[2].title;)
            { myVideo.source = "assets/media/" + myData[0].path;
                myLabel1.text = myData[0].desc;
                titleLabel1.text = myData[0].title; }
            }

I know I'm doing something wrong but can't figure it out??
