I think you can't have an click state by using SimpleButton in flash. I suggest you use a movieclip
Cheers for the advise,
kind of a novice at flash but ill give your option a go because me trying to crack the click/hit state hasnt been working Lool!
i dont know if you know but i thought id ask as you've responded to my post, do you know why "_self" doesnt work?
ive tried to get my buttons to open a new link withing itself but it wont work, it will only work when i put "_blank".
Your input would be appreciated.
What are you trying to open by _self? A URL web, PDF, or exe file?
Thanks for getting back at me so quick
well im basically doing a website as a univeristy assignment. So all im basically tryna open a html page.
ATM all the files are in the same folder on desktop, and when i enter its directory into the code and state for it to be open with _self, it wont work. But when i do the same process but put _blank, it will open up the page i was asking it to open but with _self.
i dont understand why flash wont pick up the _self command.
btw the hit state on a simple button is just the area in which if you hover the mouse over will set it to the over position. So you never see the hit state, if the the hit frame has a bigger area than the button on over or up or down state then there is a bigger area for your mouse to HIT the area, activating the over state or if you press lmb it activates the down state.
