View Full Version : Navigation Bar...can't link files...button problem...

05-06-2009, 01:20 AM
First time I've worked in Flash. Made a simple navigation bar and now I'm trying to add the code to each button to link it. However when I go to 'actions' its only doing the action for the 'frame'. I know that you want it for 'button'. Its not working tho.

I know I did something wrong along the way and maybe didn't convert something to a button/movie. Anyone know?

I uploaded the zip file here: http://grantw.netne.net/navbar.zip

*also for some reason the 'home' one doesn't work now. So don't pay attention to that*

Have you clicked on the button once and then looked at the actions panel? I'm unable to open the files from my location right now, no Flash installed.

ya i have

I think maybe I didn't make something a button somewhere. not really sure where tho.

whats the different between button and movie and when do you have to make symbols.

if you just have one base as a button..is that all you need?

Buttons handle actions differently from movieClips. MovieClips can be used as buttons, but the code is different.

Post your code, and exactly where it is placed, and I'll be able to help.
