How to make buttons!

Author Comments

Hi, I've just finished making this, it's a very detailed guide on how to make buttons in action script. I made this because when I was learning how to make buttons I couldn't find any tutorials online which had enough detail, and ended up having to be told step-by-step by my friend Toneo, I was lucky and I know that most people won't have any one to turn too to ask for. Well hopefully with my guide that should not be a problem, I've added lots of screenshots and stuff. This is made assuming your using Flash CS3 (although, most of it will work with other versions) and that you know the absolute basic of Flash CS3(like drawing a little button), if enough people don't know, or complain about not knowing things like that I will make a tutorial for the absolute basics :P Please report any bugs and yes please don't blam this if you don't understand it, it was hard for me to take this tutorial and would appreciate you not blamming it when you don't get something, as I said, I will be willing to help out people if they don't get something via PMing.

@zookyman2 - the reason why is that is cause, he said "You Open a New Document, And Make Sure, You Selected "ActionScript 2.0" instead of "Actionscript 3.0" while making a new document.

Just Press Ctrl+N or Click File > New. Now Make Sure ActionScript 3.0 is not selected and ActionScript 2.0 is selected. if not, Select ActionScript 2.0. If ActionScript 2.0 is already selected, leave it and click OK. Now Try adding actionscript to your button and it will work :)


It was good but My flash sez that I can't write action files to it it's weird! please help!
