    Help with Convert to Symbol

    Wings110

      I'm trying to link a flash page to another flash page. I'm following the instructions given to me and it has worked up until now.

      I convert the text to symbol>select button, then I go to actions, type in the filename.swf and add the level in the script assist.

      The link is on a seperate layer, and I can't think of any reason why when I ctrl+enter to see it, the text hasn't changed to a button.

      Any ideas or tips for what I'm missing or not doing quite right would be appreciated. Thanks, and I'm using CS3.

          right click on your text, click convert to symbol, tick button (if that's the symbol type you want) and click ok.  test.  your text should respond to the mouse.

           

          to code for a mouse handler, click on your text button, in the properties panel give your text button and instance name, say textBtn and in the actions panel type:

           

          textBtn.onRelease=function(){

          loadMovieNum("theswfyouwanttoload.swf",1);

          }
