Actions for the buttons

This is the code on the first title button (you will need to adjust code on other buttons):

	var user = story1;
	var userheadline = h1;

Here we tell the movie to goto the next section and store the users actions in the variables user and user headline. The reason for this will become apparent in the next part.

Actions on frame 11

loadVariablesNum ("http://localhost/pub_news.cfm?mode=fullstory&id="add user", 1)

OK hopefully this part will help understand some of the other code we just wrote. Like the code on frame 1 we load data returned by the coldfusion page. However this time the url is different, it makes the coldfusion page return the fullstory depending what the user has selected(the story ID). If you remember we stored the ID of the story in the user variable so here we add the id to the end of the url.The data is loaded in to level 1.

Actions on frame 12

if (_level1.go2 == "1") {
	gotoAndStop ("loaded2");
} else {
	gotoAndPlay ("story");

Here like before we check if the data is loaded but this time go2 is the last variable passed by the coldfusion page.

Actions on frame 13

Story = _level1.N_story

Here we simply put the story into the dynamic text box called story.The headline is passed by the button.

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
