Tutorials | Flash Navigation with Actionscript and XML

In a Flash Website, if you just need two or three “alone” buttons for your site navigation you  can simple design them and place it in the stage. Or, to be more elegant, you can make an array in as3 and place them in the stage too. However, if you are creating a dynamic Flash site you will need to create a dynamic navigation to it. One of the chance to achieve this goal is by using a XML file. The following tutorials shows you how to do it.

This tutorial covers how to create a dynamic Flash XML navigation menu using Actionscript 3.0 and XML. Each button has a roll over and roll out animation. Control the click throughs, button titles and the total number of buttons with the external XML file. Once the Flash file is created you can update the menu just by editing the XML file.
