Frame 1 IIIThere is a text box on each button called linkname. Initially it is blank. Here I fill it with the text from the variable definitions on frame 1 of the main timeline. That is where all the buttons names and URL links live. Since the variable lives on the main timeline I can refer to it with a '/:'
Set Variable: dup&":linkname" = Eval("/:text"&q) Set Variable: dup&":link" = Eval("/:link"&q)Because there is no way in Flash 4 to set the color of text, and I wanted two colors of text (one for mouseover and one for regular display) I created two movie clips with different colored text boxes in them. They contain exactly the same text. Just one has a different color. For the 'mouse Over' text I called the movie clip 'over'.
Set Property ("button"&q&"/over", Visibility) = false End LoopThe scrollbar is only visible of there are enough links to require scrolling. But, in case we ever need to reset the list, and the scrollbar was set to 'not visible' we reset it here.
Set Property ("../../../scrollbar", Visibility) = trueThe variable text box ':activelinks' is just a display so the user can see how many links are in the current list (after filtering). Since we haven't filtered yet, and we want the list to have an initial value, we set it here.
Set Variable: "../../../:active_links" = /:total&" link(s) in list." Set Variable: "/:active_links" = /:total
