View Full Version : Tab Content Script (v 2.2) W\ Flash Navigation?

1) Script Title:
Tab Content Script (v 2.2)

2) Script URL (on DD):

3) Describe problem:
I have a flash navigation movie I created. Here is the action script for one of the invisiblebutton layers:
on (rollOver) {
_root.mouse_over_cube1 = true;

on (rollOut) {
_root.mouse_over_cube1 = fstartlse;

on (release){
Now rather than going to a new page (about.html) I was wondering if I could instead, expand to an arbitrary DIV on the page enabled as seen in Demo #2 of this script. Is this possible or is there an easier way I am not aware of to do this using flash and actionscript? Below is the code of the Tab Content Script.
<h3>Demo #2- Different Tab Style, expanding of arbitrary DIVs on the page enabled</h3>

<div id="flowernote" style="display:none; position:absolute; right: 30px; width:150px; height:150px; background-color:red; color:white">
Arbitrary DIV 1

<div id="flowernote2" style="display:none; position:absolute; right: 200px; width:80px; height:80px; background-color:black; color:white">
Arbitrary DIV 2

<div id="flowernote3" style="display:none; position:absolute; right: 30px; width:140px; height:140px; background-color:navy; color:white">
Arbitrary DIV 3

<div style="border:1px solid gray; width:350px; height: 250px; background-color: #EAEAEA; padding: 5px">

<div id="tcontent1" class="tabcontent">
Tab content 1 here<br />Tab content 1 here<br />

<div id="tcontent2" class="tabcontent">
Tab content 2 here<br />Tab content 2 here<br />

<div id="tcontent3" class="tabcontent">
Tab content 3 here<br />Tab content 3 here<br />

<div id="tcontent4" class="tabcontent">
Tab content 4 here<br />Tab content 4 here<br />


<div id="flowertabs" class="modernbricksmenu2">
<li><a href="#" rel="tcontent1" class="selected">Tab 1</a></li>
<li><a href="#" rel="tcontent2" rev="flowernote,flowernote2">Tab 2</a></li>
<li><a href="#" rel="tcontent3">Tab 3</a></li>
<li><a href="#" rel="tcontent4" rev="flowernote3">Tab 4</a></li>
<li><a href="http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex17/tabcontent.htm">Tab Content</a></li>
<br style="clear: left" />

<script type="text/javascript">

var myflowers=new ddtabcontent("flowertabs")
myflowers.setselectedClassTarget("link") //"link" or "linkparent"


<p><b><a href="javascript: myflowers.expandit(2)">Click here to select 3rd tab</a></b></p>
<p><b><a href="current.htm?flowertabs=1">Reload page and select 2nd tab using URL parameter</a></b></p>

<hr />
I tried replacing "about.html" in the actionscript with "#" rel="tcontent1" but got compiler errors so obviously it's not as easy as that. Any help would be much appreciated.

Please try and format any code in your post using the CODE tags. It just makes it easier to read.

Are you basically just asking how to select a particular tab dynamically? If so, the expand() function does that already. For example:

<p><b><a href="javascript: myflowers.expandit(2)">Click here to select 3rd tab</a></b></p>

No, I'm actually asking if content can be displayed dynamically via a flash navigation movie. I know that using flash you can pull dynamic content and display it within the movie using actionscript and xml but what I wish to do is display content on the active page inside a div or div layer via a button press of the flash navigation. I thought it might be possible to do by integrating this script somehow into the flash navigation. Or there might be an easier way that I am unaware of.

Hmm I'm not familiar with Flash unfortunately, so can't really help much with anything directly Flash related.
