Quickie | Populating a ComboBox Component With Countries
A really simple Flash method for you, but one that will save you a lot of time when
designing form based flash applications...the country combobox. Sounds simple, it
is, but rather than painfully populating a combobox component with over a hundred
different countries, use the dataprovider and a simple array instead and you have
already saved yourself many minutes of typing in data (see below).
- Create a new flash document.
- Drag a combobox component from the Components Panel to the first frame of the default
layer. Name the instance 'countries'.
- Select the first frame of the default layer and add the following code within the
Actions Panel. Save your FLA and preview to view a super simple timesaving combobox!
