I’ve been working on improvements for this thumbnail/slideshow component. The way the continuous scroll flows is very nice. It provides a very fluid feel. I have it reading XML from SlideShowPro director. SSPD simply gives a structure of albums and images, so the component should work from essentially any XML source as long as it follows the same schema:
1 2 3 4 5 6
<gallery> <album id="0" description="DESCRIPTION" title="TITLE" tn="PATH" lgpath="PATH" tnpath="PATH"> <img src="FILENAME" /> ... </album> </gallery>
There is still a good bit of work to do. Right now the slideshow is coupled with the thumbnail container. I think that should be seperated, because I can see various uses for thumbnails outside of a slideshow. It needs style and event metadata so that it will function as a proper Flex component. I am also going to roll it into mediated PureMVC components for inclusion in VE:Session.
