Hello. I'm in an interesting predicament. I created a kind of
interactive seating chart for my company that allows one to look up
peoples names and extension numbers. Unfortunately I created it in
a way that severely limits updating new employees and positions.
Yes, each of those frames is one person and at the end are
additions. Quite a mess, ey? Unfortunately (for me at least) my
company hired on some new people AND people moved around. This
forced the list of people to grow which, after a long series of
cataclysmic realizations combined with my relative lack of Flash
experience primarily in actionscripting, has forced me to conclude
that I need a better system. Not only for my sake but for any other
graphic designer that takes my place in the future.
What I need is a much simpler way of doing this and having
flexibility of adding people and changing locations without having
to redo the whole thing. And I think actionscripting is the way to
An idea that I have now is that I need a movie clip that will
start faded out but will look 100% opacity when rolled over or
selected. Now all of this I know I can do with the basic button
frames easily. HOWEVER I don't know the actionscript that will
essentially reset that button back to it's default display of being
faded back when a user clicks any button that is not the said
button in question. Is there something like "if mouseclick=outside,
goto frame 1" or a script that is similar?
