I'm new to this and just learning so excuse my unsophisticated Flash lingo.
I'm trying to create a countdown timer for my website. I have written a code in ActionScript 2.0 that is working but I have a background that I created in Illustrator onto which I want to embed the timer. So, I have the image and on top of that image is where I would like the numbers to countdown, if that makes any sense?
I've posted the image I am talking about. The bottom half (the box at the bottom) is where I want to put the numbers counting down using Flash.
Is there a specific format that I need to have the imported image in since I have tried jpg, gif, bitmap and none of these allow me to put an action onto it?
Thanks so much, I really appreciate it!
you won't attach code to your background. just import your image to the stage and position it where you want.
then create a new layer above your background and create a textfield in the layer. position the textfield over your background where you want your numbers to appear. give the textfield an instance name.
finally add your code to a third layer and assign the countdown number to the text property of your textfield. test.
Thank you so much! This worked PERFECTLY! =)
