The ComboBox component

The ComboBox component is used to provide a standard list from which a user can select a value. The component is found in the Flash UI Components and has a number of properties that can be changed through the property inspector. There are also a number of methods that can be accessed through actionscript.

The component is similar to the HTML select element. It has a label - the text that a user sees in the drop down box - as well as data - information that can be accessed programatically.

In this this tutorial we'll create a ComboBox populated with site URLs as shown below. In our example, the site name will be the label for the ComboBox. The data will be the URL of the web site. When a user selects the site, they'll be taken to that URL.

» 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.
