I am a complete newbie to actionscript and flash. I am using
Flash CS3 with Mac OSX.
I need to know how to add actionscript to a movie symbol?
I made a circle and coverted it into movie symbol. After
selecting it and opening Windows > Actions, it says that the
currect selection can not have actions applied to it.
I have also tried ticking the Export for actionscript option
and leaving the default options on, but still no use.
ticking Export for actionscript isnt doing anything for you,
thats to attach a movie from the library... click your movie clip
symbol, in the properties panel, click where it says 'Instance
Name', and give it a unique name, lets say, my_mc. then in an
actions layer, ON A KEYFRAME, add this
and so on, but that's how you reference the movie clip... by
its instance name
