I am rather inexperienced with Flash, i know how to make a
movie, do motion guides and shape tweens, and how to make something
a hyperlink. BUT i am trying to figure out now to make a menu bar
that looks like the one on this website "
" and am having some trouble.
i have read the discussion on/by Topic Title: How do I do
this? .Topic Summary: Flash neophyte needs help. Created On

but the code suggestions and what not, that are a part of the
discussion, are just beyond me. Is there a decent place to get
examples (.fla files that i could then play around with)?
I have the Flash MX 2004 "bible" by Reinhardt Dowd (even
though i am using Flash 9... ) but haven't been able to find
anything specifically helpful, and in trying to follow the book's
directions for making a menu bar, well it didn't go so well...
or is there a way to insert more frames when you are in the
middle of editing a button? for instance, between the UP OVER DOWN
HIT frames?? because when i have tried to insert more frames, they
simply go to the end of the list, beyond HIT....
To play animation in a button - you place a movie clip in it.
Each frame of
the button can have a different clip if you like.
However, while you can do it with a timeline, those buttons
would be pretty
simple using one of the tweening classes. I'd recommend
having a look at
Tweener - which is hosted on Google code.
