    Button image: bring to front?

    edsager-NDxnfr Level 1



      I have 3 images converted to buttons, each of which grows in size when hovering over each.  The larger-sized image is supposed to cover the other smaller-sized image buttons.  I can get up to 2 of the larger-sized image buttons to cover at least one of the smaller-sized image buttons, but that is it.


      Is there a way in FC to send to back and bring to front images when they are hovered over?


      Thank you,

          Hi Edgsager,


          Unfortunately, there's no way to do that directly in Catalyst. Here are two workarounds:


          1) Import the project into Flash Builder, then write some code to set the "depth" property on rollover. Higher depth = more in front of other things.


          2) Do a bait-and-switch. Create your 3 larger images on top of your 3 buttons, and hide the larger images. When the buttons are rolled over, play a state transition or action sequence to animate the larger images appearing over the buttons.


          Good luck!
