Reviewing the "artistic" Flash site

In the Exercise Files folder, there's a BonusSites folder and in there is also an Artistic site. I'm going to just double- click on this index.fla. So, if you'll notice one this screen here, look at all these UILoader components. Well, if you could imagine, different images are being loaded into every single one of these. And again, all those images are external. There is another little interesting thing that's going on in here. If I select that first frame, go to Window, down to Actions, I can open up this code. All right. It might seem like a lot, but let's take a look at this loadContent function, because not only is it adjusting the Position for each the X and Y, but it's also going to scale the context, its X and Y Scale, and that's being used right in here.

So, I'm going to close that and let's take a look at what this looks like. I'm going to go Control>Test Movie, content loads in, I'll click on Video, scales up and then the videos load and I can play them. Now I can even jump to the About section, just by clicking there. It'll shift to the About and you can see that content and then even Portfolio. So, look at how this content has scaled down, allowing for a lot of room for all of these images.

So, just some other options that you can do with the same code that I've covered, just using it in a different way and modifying different properties.
