This tutorial teaches how to make buttons using AS 2.0. If it doesn't work with AS 3.0 (Flash versions CS3 or above), that's probably why.

This is a tutorial for beginners on how to make buttons lead to other frames. Please leave reviews on how I can make this better if it isn't already decent! Thank you and good day.

And also, thanks again Tom for adding this to Flash Help.

Good but it doesnt work

the gotoandplay(4) doesnt work for me, it says its a script error, and would putting gotoandplay(1, 2); get me to have a replay button??? if not how can I make a replay button???

Ok... first of all, you're supposed to put what frame number you want your button to lead to in the parenthesis.
Do you want it to go to frame 4? Do you even have 4 frames?

To make a replay button, have the button lead to your first frame in your animation.

If you're still confused, PM me and we can discuss this matter even further.

Thanks for the review!

^^Good Points^^
I liked this tutorial quite a bit. You added a lot of humor into it to make it more interesting and I liked this. You did a lot of animating instead of just having the boring description of making buttons. The various secrets were funny and of course the information was accurate and easy to follow. Nice job on this tutorial!

^^Needs Improving^^
I notice that the volume slider doesn't turn the music off, but no big deal, it's a pleasant tune!
