worldKit can be used as a "Component" in your Flash movies. It can be loaded into a movie from Actionscript, positioned and controlled, almost but not quite as a full component. This feature is Beta. We have received some reports of sluggish performance. Investigating.
worldKit will function as usual: requesting config.xml, images, and rss, and building a map, all within your Flash application. The only modification necessary to the config is to set <ascomponent>true</ascomponent>
. To include worldKit in your movie, create an empty movie clip then load worldkit.swf. For example..
Note you can pass in dynamic parameters
, in the same ways as for HTML.
You can then position worldKit, or set visibility, etc. But do not set the _width or _height, or _xscale or _yscale; these are still set in config.xml.
_root["wk"]._x = 100;
_root["wk"]._y = 100;
, by setting those variables directly in _root.
_root.JZoomComm = "50,0,250"; //zoom to lat=50, long=0, zoom=250;
