Buttons Beyond the Basics

Author Comments

My first submission. It's a tutorial on how to make buttons. It goes beyond basics, like teaching you invisible buttons, drop shadows, different button states, and just a few general rules of thumb. I did all the work by myself, the preloader is mine, same with all the grafics, and the movies. Sorry if it's slow, I did embed some actual movies that I recorded. I tried pollishing it off as best as I could before submiting, and hope you all enjoy it. Enjoy!

This was very useful

You know ?! When I first opened this , i thought it was gonna be one of newbie button tutorials with chicken scratch all over it ...! Boy , I was so wrong ! This thing is really good and It actually contained helpful tips that I am going to use on my flashes . You've clearly worked on this and the way you've explained things was very straight forward and through demonstrations ...which enhanced the overall quality of this tutorial and earned a fiffen from me !

Thank you very much for making this tutorial available for us , this was very good indeed.

Thanks for that comment! I also noticed that you added it to your favorites, I thank you for that as well! My main concern was to make it not look newbie from my point of view, and I'm glad it didn't appear so!


Really Good

This is really nice, I've been thinkin about making some flash and this will really help. Im putting it in my fave's

Sirusblk responds:

Thanks for that review. I really only wanted others to benifit from my experience, and decided to do so in this tutorial, hopefully it this takes off, I'll do more...


sorry man

i just hate all the tourials things theyre so annoying

Sirusblk responds:

I'm sorry to hear you feel that way. Hopefully once accepted it will be moved under the tutorial section, and you'll only see under your terms of learning.



very educational, i now know how to make a button..good job

Sirusblk responds:

Thanks for that feedback. I take comfort in hearing that my tutorial helped someone, as I picked up all this knowledge over the period of a long time. Thanks for the positive review.


Only one problem I saw.

There needs to be a mask around the outside of the loader. But that’s a minor thing and I don't mind. Once this is accepted I’m going to add it to my favorites.

Sirusblk responds:

Yes, thanks for noticing it. I would have done it but I was anctious to submit my first flash in and it would have thrown off my whole project. Thanks for the great review!
