I am using Director 11.5.9 on my iMac. I have a demo program I created a few years back on MX and I need to change the background color of some push buttons on a screen in the demo. That used to be simple. Now I can't seem to discover the magic formula. I used to double click on a button on the screen, and the button would change into a mode that enabled me to select different colors from the palette. Now, when I double click on a button, whether on the screen, or in the cast window, or in the score, Director immediately crashes to the desktop.
Is this a known problem with Director? Is there a fix? Is there a workaround? Are there any ideas? Is there any other way to change a button color?
Thanks for whatever you can tell me on this.
Are your buttons Flash Components, or "Classic" buttons?
PUT member("Button").type -- #flashComponent
within the cast - double click over your 'push button' cast member
it should now appear in the text field editor window on the screen
over on the far left of the screen (or where ever your tools palette is located?) - near the bottom of the tools - you should see two little coloured squares - one is text colour, and the other is the back ground colour
if you click over the bottom one of the two squares you'll be able to change this background colour.
