Create Vertical Menus in Dreamweaver using Creative DW Vertical Menu

In this tutorial we’re going to configure Creative DW Vertical Menu by configuring each tab step by step. We will go through:

- the General tab;
- the Layout tab;
- the Animation tab;
- the Text tab.

Finally, we’ll obtain an „.html” file which will contain our result – a vertical menu. I’m going to show you how the menu looks like after every step and as well a final version of it; like this, you’ll get a glimpse of the menu’s high customizability. In order to be able to do this tutorial, the first thing you have to do is install Creative DW Dropdown Menus extension on your computer; if you encounter any problems doing that, check out the “How to install an extension” tutorial. Another important thing you should consider is the creation of a website in Dreamweaver before you start the work; “How to create a website” can help you if any problems occur.

How to make a Flash preloader using Actionscript 3

Hi,

This is my first post on the Extend Studio blog as I didn’t have the chance to write until now. I will try to do this more often from now on. I plan to make all my posts helpful and fun. I will post tutorials, links to interesting websites and best practices as well as a more inside look of the Extend Studio company.

We created many tutorials for our products until now and we will continue to increase our tutorial library with new additions each week. But we don’t want to stop and create tutorials for our extensions. We want to be as helpful as we can and we will begin to post various how-to-make tutorials about issues that we noticed that our customers need help with. Also, we are open for tutorial ideas and requests. You can either post them here or our forum and we will take your request into consideration.

While building this tutorial I got the idea that an easy to use pre-build preloader might be helpful if you don’t want or don’t have time to build one yourself. I’ve created a little preloader class that can be used to load your swf’s with. There are some movieclips already built that you can just drag and drop on the stage and then insert the path to your swf and the preloader class will handle the rest. If you want more details about this preloader, download its package from here. You will find a usage manual inside the package. Now, back to the tutorial.

In this tutorial I will teach you how to make a Flash preloader using Actionscript 3. The idea is that we will create a very small swf that we will use to load your main swf file using the Actionscript 3 Loader class. Because the preloader will be a very small swf, you don’t have to worry that it will take much time until the preloader itself is downloaded. (more…)
