I need help with two things related to Flash CS4.
First, I'm designing an entire webpage in Flash and used text for the navigation bar. I converted all four
links to Button symbols, but when I write Actionscript for the "home" link so it goes and plays "Page 1," I get an error that says Flash can't recognize a null object reference. How do I fix this so when I click on the link it takes me to the frame I desire?
Second, on one of my pages I want to put a couple drop down menus; one that when you select a certain choice on it, it displays said choice on the screen in text. The other drop down menu I'd like to display a certain image when you make a choice from the drop down menu. My question is not only how to do either of those actions, but how do I make a drop down menu in Flash CS4 in general? Thank you all for your help, God knows I need it bad!
for your first issue, click file/publish settings/flash and tick "permit debugging" and retest. the error message will pinpoint the line of code with the non-existant object. fix that.
for your dropdown issues, start by using google: flash <your actionscript version> dropdown menu tutorial
