Fading XML Image Scroller Gallery & Menu & Banner Rotator & Slideshow with scrollbar component, autoPlay, previous, next buttons and scrollable text description box.
Features: XML Image Gallery is for creating image slide shows. Same thing could be used as menu or banner rotator. It has a scrollbar component. It scroll the thumbnail of the slides included in the slide show. When a particular slide is being shown the corresponding thumbnail is highlighted. Each slide can have a text label area that can have detailed description and can be hyperlinked. The transition from one slide to the next is a fad in/out effect. On the top right corner you have the play controls. The play button and two other buttons that can help you go forward and backward in the show. Once the list of slides is exhausted it starts at the beginning again. The thumbnails in the bottom scroll bar gets adjusted accordingly.
All the components are controlled by a XML file for images, titles, descriptions and links. Scroll bar component support is available for text descriptions box and image menu. You can select items in the scroll bar to change the viewable slide too. Multiple big images and banners supported. You can use SWF or image files. View times are adjustable from the XML file. The split of display area and the scroll bar area can be adjusted from the XML file too. The autoplay, previous, next as well as the timer and adjustable focus are possible. Image titles, mirror and mouse roll over change of color are supported and can be set by the user. Text to be used is driven by HTML and CSS. The skins to be used can be customized. The package opens with Flash 8 and later.
Overall: Quite a handy tool. Some more transition effects would have been nice. Beware of version 1.0 release there could be problems.
