Hi, I am new to Flash. I have tried to pick it up several
times over the years but always seem to come up against problems.
It seems that Flash is more dependant on Actionscript now than it
ever was. I am not a programmer by any sense and feel like learning
AS will be too time consuming and a little beyond me. If anybody
has any advice on overcoming this I would be very interested to
hear from like minded individuals who have gone through the same.
An example of what I now find myself trying to do (and
hitting a brick wall) is create a sliding menu for a website.
Imagine a list of links with a triangle next to the home (top
link). I want to be able to click on one any link and have the
arrow move to the link I just clicked (and load the relevant page).
I didn't think this would be too hard but either it is or I'm just
You can learn actionscript basics and slowly increase the
difficulty. Just do a bunch of tutorials on topics that interest
you, and you'll slowly pick up all the code you need to do more and
more complex things.
