Project Description

I'm looking for an existing solution to the following or a professional Flash designer to develop a simple image viewer using Flash 5/MX and ActionScript. The image viewer will basically work as a scrollable dynamic gallery. The image viewer should work as explained below:

## Deliverables

1. Read a text file in the local directory (at the same level as the SWF) and load the content on each line as initialization variables. The proposed structure for the INI is specified at the end. If the INI file is not found then the Flash movie should stop with a blank screen. 2. Load all the images with the specified extensions (comma seperated) as defined in the INI from a directory on the server as defined in the INI file (see step #1). Until all the images are loaded a simple pre-loader (with the text "Loading :: x%" should be displayed with changing progress percentage. The whole process should be very fast. 3. Generate a horizontally scrollable area with the loaded images. The base area's width, height, background color and the outline color should be picked & set from the INI (see step #1). The images should be vertically centered on the base. Images should be separated by x pixles as defined & set from the INI. The display of the images should be reverse sorted by the numerical prefix (underscore seperated) on each image (eg: [url removed, login to view], [url removed, login to view] ... [url removed, login to view], [url removed, login to view]). 4. The scrolling will be controlled by 2 graphic buttons at the center/bottom of the area, whose source image is picked and set from the INI. Moving-over or clicking on the buttons should control the movement of the scrolling area thereby moving the images in the appropriate direction. 5. The scrolling should be smooth and the scrolling smoothness delay value (in miliseconds) should be picked from the INI file (see step #1). Its important the INI file is read only once (at the start of the movie) and then variables are used throughout. Proposed structure for the INI: [Extensions] [Directory] [BaseWidth] [BaseHeight] [BaseColorInHex] [OutlineColorInHex] [ImageGap] [ButtonImage] [ButtonHoverImage] [ButtonClickImage] [SmoothScrollDelay] Example INI File: gif,jpg,jpeg /gallery 400 300 #FFFFFF #000000 10 /images/[url removed, login to view] /images/[url removed, login to view] /images/[url removed, login to view] 100 Something similar to what I need above but in DHTML/JavaScript can be seen at [url removed, login to view] . This is just to give you an idea of what I'm talking about. Please place your bid with the cost and time estimates. I need "quality" work and I need it quick. I'll also need the FLA source file along with the complied SWF. Please don't hesitate to ask if something is not clear or if you have a suggestion. --- 1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done. 2) Installation package that will install the software (in ready-to-run condition) on the platform(s) specified in this bid request. 3) Complete ownership and distribution copyrights to all work purchased.
