The Stage of the Search Movie

I will deal with the preloader later. First I will introduce the main movie. The stage is just an ordinary stage with a listbox, several textfields, radiobuttons and a checkbox. There is also an empty movieclip for pictures or movies, which can be selected from links in the textfield. The background for the main movie is a colored box.

Note: It is important to make the background a movieclip. Otherwise it will be transparent and the background will be the base movie.

For the radiobuttons we have to fill up the form in the property inspector as shown in the picture. Even we have scripts for the buttons to set labels, we have to do that because I found it is important when the movie is a level1 movie within a base movie. The same is also true for the checkboxes.

We now group the radiobuttons. Normally they are by default grouped in one group. Since we have different options we regroup them, for example group1 is differentiating the age of the models and group2 the haircolor. We set one of the properties of each group true. Checkboxes cannot be grouped and are used to modify the search and make it even narrower. They will always be used in addition to radiobuttons here.

» 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.
