Flash Component ? is a standard extension for Adobe Flash MX, MX2004, Flash 8 and Flash CS3. You simply install the MXP file and then you just drag & drop the extension from the Components panel onto the scene of your movie.
The component can be used in a movie with any structure. You can control the component to create contents, navigation panels, page print or enlargement using ActionScrpt.
The component can operate with XML files.
The page flipping component provides for software page caching. This allows caching control and provides maximum comfort for the users. No more annoying blinks while another page is being loaded from the browser cache.
Where necessary, you may perform all the component settings from an external XML file that supports all the setting capacities of the development environment, for example, change page order or any other parameter ? just edit the XML file.
This is the world's only flash development that provides such a great page flipping animation control opportunity. You may define page flipping and return speed and the speed of the gotoPage function. You may set the autoflip to respond to mouse pointer located near a page edge. Or, you may disable any response to mouse clicks leaving only the autoflip working, and create any user interface on the page. Users will not be distracted from the page at every mouse click anymore.
The page flip is known to have high CPU resources requirements, therefore our component was initially designed to save CPU resources. On average, this component works 30% more efficiently than its known counterparts.
If you want to make a nice looking book with front and rear cover pages, you no longer need to create transparent pages: all you need is to control the Always Opened parameter.
