This is my first time posting for assistance in a forum like
this so I will do my best to articulate the problem the best I can.
I am building a Flash website using AS 2. I have built a
couple drop down menus that animate in and out. In these menus I am
attempting to make buttons that can be clicked on and will animate
in another box of information. As I have it now, you can click on
them and the box will animate in. The new box will stay in its
location until you roll off of the drop down menu.
I figure this happens because the button is part of the menu
and the new animated box is buried in the button that is part of
the larger whole of the drop down menu.
I have assumed that the solution to get the box to stay there
even after the menu is gone is to use a container type feature.
My question would be,
1. Is this a correct solution?
2. If so, where can I learn to do this?
I am amateur at best when it comes to action-scripting so I
do not know what sort of coding information would be necessary to
make this sort of function work.
I'm not really sure how you have it all tied together, but it
sounds like the box is part of the submenu. If the box is the
content that the submenu selection will produce, then the box
should probably be separate from the submenu.
