Alternative to TileList
Hello all, as you can see I'm new to forums. I've been using Flash for a little while and I'm being slowly trained up by my employers.
I've got a question for you gurus out there - I'm looking for a lightweight alternative to the TileList component. I'm currently designing and developing an MPU Ad Creative that references an XML doc and pulls in four FLVs and their appropriate meta data. These videos will then be playable in the merch window, and there will be some opt-in data capture going on as well.
I've got a prototype going at the moment that grabs the XML and populates a TileList, and then uses ListEvent Listeners to add functionality to each of the ImageCells. All working fine, except that the file size is already at 47k without any of the data capture form fields in there. This is already over the TZ polite-load limit, and I've only added maybe 60% of the functionality. When I remove the TileList class, the swf shrinks down to 3k (a much nicer size ), and even after adding the remaining 40% I can't see this going much above 15k.
So, anyone know of anything I could use to replace TileList? I thought about creating my own class that holds all the information for each Video I need, but I thought I should check first to see if there are any other alternatives.
Thanks in advance, and apologies if this question is a festering pile of noobishness.
