Topic: Control the Soundslide timing externally?

This is a question for Joe or anybody else.

Has anyone figured out a way to control the Soundslide timing externally?

What I had in mind was, have an external button(s) that controlled the position of the scrubber to jump to certain parts in the timeline.

Is this possible? Any ideas?

Re: Control the Soundslide timing externally?

That is possible in Flash if you're using the component. Assuming the component had an instance name of "soundslides", these four commands would work.

soundslides.ss_gotoAndPlayImage(imgNumber);
//plays from a specific image
 
soundslides.ss_gotoAndStopImage(imgNumber);
//advances the timeline to a specific image
 
soundslides.ss_gotoAndPlaySec(second);
//plays from from an audio position
 
soundslides.ss_gotoAndStopSec(second);
//advances the timeline and stops

"imgNumber" is the image you'd like to jump to ...
"second" is the time point you'd like to jump to ...

Is that what you're looking for?

Yes!

This SHOULD work. Once I try it out and see if it does I'll let you know.
