    I have recently purchased flash 5, it is a great program, but $300, f*** that, i got it at a discount place for $150.

    Ok, on to the question, I want to know how to make a link(or whatever it is called in flash) open up in the movie, like a box slides in with my writing and stuff in it, all i can figure out how to do is to open up info from another separate creation in a different window, please help?

    make a movie clip and give it an instance name. In the movieclip, make the box slinding in and out, insert a stop action on frame 1 and on the last frame of the sliding in. Now make a button on the flash main timeline and insert this code:

    on (release) {
    tellTarget ("InstanceName") {
    play ();
    }
    }

    When you click the button, the movieclip will play until it stops(with the box slid in) and when you click again, the movie clip will slide back out and stop. Make sure you enable looping for the mc.
