    Hi medyman,

    if i understand wrongly, i gt 2 lines of codes which is like this

    // increase loadedImages by .5 and not 1 because the images are being loaded twice otherwise, it will double.
    loadedImages += 0.5;
    if (loadedImages == totalImages)
    {
    replaceMCs();
    }



    // decrease totalimages by .5 and not 1 because the images are being loaded twice otherwise, it will double.
    totalImages -= 0.5;

    if (loadedImages == totalImages)
    {
    replaceMCs();
    }


    Do u mean this 2 statements influence the the number i asked u abt??

    No, the number of images in the marquee don't necessarily make a difference to the width of the marquee.

    If you have ten images that are 10px wide or one image that's 100px wide, it's the same thing to Flash.

    The numbers you asked about are in direct result of the width of the logo_mc and it's position relative to the left edge of the stage.

    If it helps at all... Maybe your just going for the multiple effects flash can put on a marquee... But HTML has a simple marquee code and it works nicely. its really simple tag too... You would nevr guess the name of it... Its called
    Code:
    <marquee>Text images and other junk</marquee>
    You can edit the speed and stuff... Theres a whole reference page here on it:
    http://www.htmlcodetutorial.com/_MARQUEE.htmlhttp://It a couple pages but they are down to the point, give you the code and make everything make sense...
    Hopes it helps even though your looking for a way to do it in flash which I don't know how todo...

    An option, if you're not a stickler for usability or compliance. For your <marquee> tag users though, I think there are some plans to add marquee tags into CSS 2 specifications.

    Plus, I think the OP is using images...by marquee I'm assuming he/she means a scrolling panel.

    Bring it on! I don't mind at all. I'm glad to help. This forum (read Blizzard) helped me get my start in Flash, so I'm just returning the favor.

    If I minded helping people out, I wouldn't visit these forums, lol.

    Are you resizing the image within some type of animation? If not, then you should probably resize the images before you bring them into Flash.

    Resizing an image in Flash will:
    1) Bloat your file size
    2) Not have the best results -- distorted/pixelated

    If you are going to resize, you should use a high quality .png to achieve the best possible results.

    Look into McTween for AS 2.0 and Tweener for AS 3.0 to create the animation.

    Let me know if you need any help with this.

    hi medyman , the logos dimensions are all 150 by 126, i suppose there should be no problems. But when i put it in the marquee the the logos with juz the words will be short in height, i suppose my task nw is to make the words to be as tall as the other logos with images. I try using websites with resizing softwares, but without any success.

    attached are 2 images juz for reference, in case u not too sure wat i toking abt
