I have been using Dreamweaver for a few years now, gradually
self teaching myself and have just ventured
into it's sister program 'Flash' with the aim of producing a
simple animated button that does the following;
= on up state - logo/text 'static'
= on over state - logo change / text 'static'
= on down state - logo rotates to 'rub out' text and stops,
then 'goes to url'
I have been working on this for three days and am surrounded
by books but have finally decided that there must
be something i'm missing!
When I compile the button, (excluding the final command to
'get url' - i've never got that far), the movie clip won't play
I test it in it's own window - perfect! - but when I try and
play it by 'clicking' on the button after it has switched to the
it just flashes on the screen for a split second and that's
I have even followed on-line tutorials, word for word but
still can't overcome this problem. Can anybody please advise
what it is i'm doing wrong?
p.s. If anyone could email me a similar working button of
their own so that I could see how it works that would help I think.
If you post your code that controls the button I may be able
to help , sometimes it is hard to see what is missing without
seeing the code, maybe you are not doing anythign wrong in the
sense that you dont get a compiler error but some things dont
generate errors and just dont work for toher reasons.
