Creating the code (Cont.)

The next section contains all the brains. This section of code will execute every time the mouse is moved. First, we will set up a few variables. We need to know where the cursor is and how far away it is from each of the icon origin points.


onClipEvent (mouseMove) {
	// Get cursor x and y coordinates
	y = getProperty("_root.drag", _y);
	x = getProperty("_root.drag", _x);
	// Find cursor offset for each icon based on icon's starting location
	HomeOffset = x-200;
	NewsEventsOffset = x-250;
	ScheduleOffset = x-300;
	ManualOffset = x-350;
	DirectionsOffset = x-400;
	LessonOffset = x-450;
	ContactUsOffset = x-500;
	MP3CollectionOffset = x-550;
	BookmarkOffset = x-600;
	LinksOffset = x-650;

I'm a freelance web developer and designer. Although I specialize in networking (you know, Cisco routers, servers, etc), I also dabble with programming and right-brained creativity.

» 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.
