In the following flash tutorial,you will (hopefully) learn how to make a simple button in flash ^_^!

1.Open a new "flash document".

2. to start we will draw a simple rectangle button.

3. select the rectangle tool.

4 choose your colours for the button (pencil colour=outline of button)
(pen tool=filler colour of button).

5 select the black mouse tool (the arrow in the tool bar that is black >_>).

6. highlight the button by dragging the mouse over the button.

7. right click on the highlighted button.

8. select from the drop down menu "convert to symbol"

9. you have 3 choices of which to convert it to: movie clip,button or graphic.
Also call it "button1"

10. obviously choose button.

11. click ok.

12. now you have the button...except it won't do anything ^_^!

13.now right click on the symbol and select "actions".

14. now you have to type in code.

15. luckily for you i have prepeared a very simple code for you to copy into the actions panel.


gotoAndPlay(*insert frame number here*);

17. that code above will goto the next frame in the timeline and start playing.

18. where it says "*insert frame number here*" delete that and enter the number of the frame you want it to go to.

19.now you have pretty much made your button ^_^.

20. all steps from here are optional .

21. double click your button1 symbol.

22. you will now be in edit mode.

23. in the timeline you will only see 4 frames.

24. you can edit these according to what you want to happen in: up,over,down and hit.

25. sound is also able to be put in a button like a normal frame.


27. post here for help.
