One approach would be to make each list item and each computer a movieclip that has different frames for different interactions, namely a normal frame and a rollover frame. Then you need to add the mouse over and mouse out code to command the list item and its accompanying computer to go to the mouse over frame and back per the interactions.
If you name each list item similar to its computer's name then you can possibly share the same rollover/rollout functions for all the interactive pieces.
The code you use will depend on which version of actionscript you are going to use.
Thank you, for the guidance.
I am new to flash and never tried ActionScript. I have Flash CS4 professional. So, I guess I will be using ActionScript 3.0.
Now, I have two more questions:
1. Is this the simplest approach?
2. Where on the web can I find some detailed guidance/writeups regarding this approach?
or which book will you recommend to target this specific issue?
Thank you once again.
You are not likely to find anything that addresses your specific design due to it being both too specific and only requiring basic code elements for a solution - online tutorials typically address more complex matters. I've prepared an example for you which is available from the following link...
Thank you very much. That was exactly what I was looking for.
Thank you for putting in the time to make the file. It saves me time reading all books on flash.
Thanks once again.
You're welcome... be sure to study it to learn what it doeshow it works... as I said it's basic stuff, so you'll do yourself a favor to understand it thoroughly.
