    If you do that, make sure that the client isn't planning on mailing them out in a standard-size business letter envelope. There are often practical size constraints on brochures. If you need more space,...

    It's really no different than selling any other kind of advertising. You contact the right people and convince them that they'll get more in return than what they spend on the ad. For example, track...

    You're right, guys.
    And I've already considered what you said, seamas.
    Thank you.
    Anyway, what do you think of this? Not the concept (for the obvious reasons you mentioned), just the...

    You can't do that.

    You do have options:

    Bring all of the colors in document A into your swatch palate.
    In document B import swatches from Document A (swatch library)...

    Title: Help: slowing-down a for loop???

    íHola!

    My script:

    [quote]
    //Createstatictextfield:
    this.createTextField('static_txt',3,50,0,50,20);
    this.static_txt.text='ism';
    //
    //Createarray:
    varisms=['Natural','Postmodern','Surreal','Dada','Formal',' Real','Symbol','Expression','Futur','Ambigu'];
    //
    //Createtextfieldtodisplayabovearrayelements:
    this.createTextField('ism_txt',2,0,0,50,20);
    ism_txt.selectable=false;
    ism_txt.type='dynamic';
    ism_txt.text='------';
    //
    //Createmovieclipbutton:
    this.createEmptyMovieClip('ism_btn',1);
    //Addtextfield:
    this.ism_btn.createTextField('submit_txt',1,100,50 ,50,20);
    this.ism_btn.submit_txt.text='Submit';
    //
    //Buttonhandler:
    this.ism_btn.onRelease=function(){
    //Createforlooptocyclethrougharrayanddisplaycontents/elementssequentially:
    for(vari=0;i<isms.length;i++){
    trace('Nowexaminingelement:'+isms[i]);
    ism_txt.text=isms[i];
    }//Endforloop.
    };//Endismbuttonfunction.
    </CODE>

    How do I decrease the speed of the above 'for loop' each time it iterates?

    I would like the array elements to display in the (ism_txt) text box, starting really fast, slow down, and finally stopping/displaying last element of array in text box.

    Is that possible?

    Should I us setInterval?

    Obviously, I am a novice actionscripter... If I am going about this the wrong way, please let me know... maybe I should not be trying to do this all via AS?

    Anyway, any help would be appreciated.

    Cheers!

    I don't know how to do it in as but if you're familiar at all with flash, you can easily change your looping speed there via the fps (frames per second) box.

      Or you could easily insert ANOTHER for loop and adjust it for the time. In Flash, is there a WAIT command? I'm not a Flash programmer at all, but the scripting language sounds a lot like C or other compiled languages...

        You could probably use a timer, but I don't know how to do that in ActionScript. Case would know, but he has been very busy lately.

          Set it up as a function and set a variable to control the interval.

          here's a tutorial on intervals and functions

          http://www.kirupa.com/developer/acti...etinterval.htm.

          alter the variable by whatever at the end of your original script either by adding, subtracting or dividing is a nice way to achieve a 'slowdown' effect

          let me know how you get on
