The buttons are animated with a movie clip inside each button
and the movie clip plays on rollover, however I need this same
movie clip inside the buttons to play reversed, when the cursor is
moved away from the button.
I know how to do this with an instance but I already made
each button and fooled around a thousand times with the animation
and I do not wish to start over again!
I have only experimented with this type of action script
before and I must say I am a little lost =(
Can anyone help me as to how I would go about doing this ?
Any coding would help.
I know there is a simple way of doing it with action script,
but I have no more time to fool around and I need your assistance
If you could supply the code it would help me out.
(I can modify it to work with my page and my buttons)
Just need something to work off of.
Maybe a code I can put on the button, or whatever you can
come up with.
Without knowing the details of what you have created, or the
code you have attempted to use, the best I can offer at the moment
is to say you need to have the reverse playing code of the
movieclip get triggered by the mouse out event and not stop
stepping back down the timeline until the _currentframe value
reaches 1. If another mouse over should occur, then it's your
decision as to whether it picks up from where it has stepped back
to or starts from frame 1.
Starting over again is often the better approach, since what
you may have created may not be able to facilitate directing things
to play in reverse.
Believe it or not, that helps.
I don't think I need to start over, I can just put the
reverse animation after the forward animation on the timeline and
use the mouse out function to play from the keyframe the reverse
animation starts on when the mouse is moved away.
Thanks for your help.
