For my Prototyping class I have to make an interactive fast food ordering system. I have majority of frames made I just need to add the interactive part to it. I am using AS2 in Flash CS3. I have the picture and the text grouped and are classified as a button. I want to make it so that when the picture or text is clicked it will make a black box appear around it, making it 'selected'. I've tried to add an Event Listener but couldn't figure out how to make the box appear on it. Any suggestions?
These pictures are basically what I'm trying to accomplish.
Keep in mind, I'm a Flash newbie, I have a probably 3 hours experience with Flash.
But I do have knowledge of basic Java commands, so I can understand code.
Onw way would be to create the buttons as movieclips so that when they are selected you move the movieclip's timeline to a rame that shows the rectangle around it. Another way would be to have the movieclips as separate objects that you make appears when its associated button is clicked. There are likelynumerous other possibilities.
