Thread: Setting Alpha With a Button

Hybrid View

  1. #1
    Ok, I have a button within a menu.

    When you rollOver the button I want to change the alpha amount on a movie clip that is on the root timeline

    I have the movie clip that I want to change the alpha on set with instance name AlphaChanger

    Here is the existing code for the button

    on (rollOver) {
    play();
    }
    on (rollOut) {
    gotoAndStop("Start");
    }
    on (release) {
    getURL("page2.html");
    }

    Can you help me fill in the blanks.

    Thanks
    Rick

    Code:
    on (rollOver) {
    setProperty("_root.alphachanger", _alpha, n)
    play(); 
    }
    Where 'n' is the percentage of the alpha setting.

    You may also need a rollOut button event - not sure how your site is constructed.

    Take it to the next level

    Hey just a thought, how might I have it fade to the alpha setting so for example it would slowly fade from 100% to 20%

    I know, never happy but I am learning!

    Thanks
    Rick

    Easiest way is to set the fading animation in the movie clip, but 'park' it using stop actions.

    Then, on the rollover code:
    Code:
    on (rollOver) {
    _root.alphachanger.gotoAndPlay(n);
    }
    where n is the next frame after the stop action.
