I know there used to be an issue with using movies set to transparent in that the cursor didn't change to a hand when rolling over buttons.
Is it still not fixed?
I am using AS2 (less code) but could convert to AS3 if I have to. I have about 15 buttons all with animations that activate on rollover (its a kids website). They float over a large background image set as a background that's centered and overlaps the actual html page content quite a lot (for large screens). Looks great but its hard to tell what is a button.
I have tried the code below for a button instance name button_1
button_1.buttonMode = true;
button_1.useHandCursor = true;
that doesn't work.
Is there a solution?
p.s. Does anyone know of a good vector based animation software package for html5. One that works in the way that Flash originally used to; simply, effectively with very little need for code.
adobe's createJS is over complicated and creates a mess.
for the movie involved:
Buttons are published as MovieClip symbols without interactivity.
Feature not supported: Color effects.
Layers with classic tweens must contain only a single symbol instance.
The html page produced doesn't actually work as is.
Sorting it out is not a big deal but is a hassle I don't need.
It takes far to long to get something relativly simple to work.
