Frame 2 VI'm' counts from the leftmost character in the link text all the way to the right... MINUS the length of the search string...
text='Microsoft's Online Web Site'
Searches from 'M' through to the 'b' on the word 'Web'.
After that point, there's no way the search string could match so we save ourselves precious calculations by stopping searching that link text at that point.
Set Variable: "m" = 0& Loop While (m<=(Length(text)-Length(findit))) Set Variable: "m" = m+1 If (Substring (text,m,Length(findit)) eq findit)However, as soon as we have a match we stop checking that link. (In the case of the above sample, that would happen after only 13 comparisons...) Since we have a match, we can now add this link to the new list. (We cleared the list to prepare for the new list already... that happens in the next frame, where we check for user input... so we can now start duplicating new buttons again... exactly the same code as the previous frame...)
Set Variable: "p" = p+1 Set Variable: "dup" = "button"&p Duplicate Movie Clip ("button", dup, p) Set Property (dup, Y Position) = p*/:button_spacing Set Property (dup, X Position) = /:indent Set Variable: dup&":linkname" = Eval("/:text"&n) Set Variable: dup&":link" = Eval("/:link"&n) Set Property (dup&"/over", Visibility) = false End IfOnce all the loop checking is done, we update the amount of found links. Since the variable 'p' was ONLY increased if we foud a match, 'p' is the amount of links found in the list matching the user's input.
Set Variable: "../../../:active_links" = p&" link(s) in list." Set Variable: "/:active_links" = p If (p
