I am a bit puzzled:
- You talk about a responsive project, but also 'that works when previewing as SWF'? But a responsive project cannot be viewed as SWF, has only HTML5 output. In normal projects you don't have fluid boxes.
- Why do you hide the object after having faded in? For a simple Fade in, Fade out, what is wrong with the normal Fade in/Fade out transitions from the Timing panel?
Thanks for the response.
To clarify, I tested/previewed the fade in/out in both a responsive project and a normal project (.SWF) to see the differences.
Your right, I didn't need to use the Hide action on the object after it faded in. Thanks for pointing that out.
Regarding your second bullet, I didn't think you could use the fade in/out settings in the Timing panel in conjunction with an advanced action triggered by a button click. But I tried it, and got it to work. It's much easier than using the Alpha effects. Thanks for pointing out an easier way to do it!
Fade in/Fade out is a legacy property of an object, but it can be very useful!
