    moveable symbol with embedded buttons

    tomnicholson
      hi
      i'm creating an activity based CAL (computer aided learning) program,
      some of the activities will require a calculator, which i have coded.

      what i want to do is somehow have the activities able to load the calculator, and drag it about,

      is the best way to do this by making a button on each activity screen that can use a calculator, making the calculator a movie clip symbol and toggling the visible property, then adding actionscript to it to make it draggable?

      if so, how would i make it so the calculators buttons still work?

      cheers

          Try not using absolute paths and only using relative paths.
