    Button fix in mx.

    I was wondering if in mx they have some way to make your buttons rollovers and rolloffs work smoothly in mx easily.

    I hate when you rollover a button then roll off really fast and make the button go to the rolloff frame before it has finished the rollover frame.

    Hi

    I haven't come across anything in MX to help with this.

    You can do it with code.
    You can use variables and if's (on the first/last frames of your mc's and your rollOver/rollOut) to check if the mc has finished.

    never really thought about that.
    Can you post a simple button with the code so i can understand it better.

    Hi Nionicle


    I've managed to do the button .. it was a little more complicated than I'd originally thought it would be, lol. Isn't it always!

    Anyway I've attached the .fla below.

    Hope you can adapt it so you can use it.


    (Just removed .fla Use the one below)

    Hi,

    I noticed that if you quickly rollover/out, sometimes you were left in the over state when you were outside the button! (not pretty) lol


    Heres the perfect version (I hope). It's quite a logic puzzle. I hope you can work out whats happening.

    I want an mc to move on roll over then move back on roll out.
    I know this isnt right but here is the code i put on the mc
    onClipEvent (load) {
    speed = 5;
    oldy = 0;
    }
    onClipEvent (enterFrame) {
    _y += (130-oldy)/speed;
    }
    I was wondering if i could do the rollover by doing a hittest?
    I dont know anything i am baffeled. I thought i had it but then i didnt.

    Hi,

    If a button/mc has an animated up & over state and you rollover and rollout quickly the button doesn't complete the animation.

    Check out the link I gave in my last post. The third button/mc finishes its up/over animations even if you move the mouse over/out really fast.

    I hope this is what Nionicle was asking,

    I hate when you rollover a button then roll off really fast and make the button go to the rolloff frame before it has finished the rollover frame.
    If not its been fun/educational anyway. lol.

    aye! ok, i think i understand lucky. hmmm, one has to wonder how user friendly or intuitive this method is? Lucky are you very familiar with the London area? Flying out in a couple weeks and we're looking for a reasonably priced b&b or hotel by Victoria Station. Sorry for piggy backing on your thread Nionicle .

    Hi Dunc

    It was a bit of a hack but it works. I think its what Nionicle was originally asking for??? I might use it at some point I quite like the buttons and I can easily change the animation (up/over mc's).

    I'm not familiar with the Victoria area, just the Bus Station and Rail stations. I would think there are plenty of hotels around there but I have no knowledge of prices/standards etc, sorry.

    Have a good trip.
