    Button scripting help

    texjgc Level 1

      There is a simple solution to my question, Im sure.

      I have created 2 different states of my button that I want to make. Each state is a movie clip with graphics inside (a picture with text on top of it).

      I want to, in actionscript, tell flash that when a user mouses over my button to display "this" state, and when the user clicks to show "this", and on and on.

      I basically want to change states of the button based on what my user is doing with it (mousing over, clicking on it, etc.) with actionscript.

      Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

          1. If you have a MovieClip named "myButton" and inside your two states e.g. "over" and "click", add a new layer and label each of the keyframes "over" and "click" respectively.
          2. then in actionscript you can use the myButton.gotoAndStop("over"); in your mouseOver() method, and myButton.gotoAndStop("click"); in your onClick() method.
          NOTE: Make sure you have a stop action over each of these keyframes.
