The SWF File

This tutorial will cover how to generate a menu-style list at run time, much like Generator. This is very handy when you need an easy-to-update menu list of varying length.

The first step is to decide what you want the appearance of each menu item to be. In a very simple list, there will only be one appearance for each menu item. For example a string that acts as a button. There is no limit on how many possible styles each menu item can have, so your menu can be as complex and diverse as you choose. Some suggestions are: indented lines, lines with specific graphics, lines with different sounds, etc. In the example, each menu item has two possible states: A text string button or a dividing line.

» 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.
