I'm still learning as I go in Director, and I've created a little menu which I would like another member of the cast (say an arrow) to poppup underneeth the menu item the mouse is on to show the user's where they're pointing. I've had the hardest time trying to figure this out, any sugestions?
I would create a sprite from the arrow cast member and keep it hidden off-stage until required, using Lingo to manage this. I'd then send it a message to appear at a particular location when another sprite (one of your menu items) is rolled over, and another message - to hide itself again - when the mouse rolls off. I've attached a little example file to demonstrate this idea.
That works just how I need it! Now I'm very new to Lingo code, how would I make the sprite appear lower than you have in your code? What would I need to change?
