    Making a button dissapear and reappear in random places

    How would I go about doing this?

    That is something like...
    If I click a button, it reappears somewhere else.

    EDIT: I was just thinking... couldn't the code be something similar to... (the code setup will be wrong because I am very inexperenced with actionscript, been using it for like 2-3 days).

    on{release}
    button.visible=false
    duplicatemovieclip(I don't know this command yet) at random x and y coordinates

    Help please.

    Give your button an instance name (I used btn here) then in the frame that contains the button add the actionscript,

    code:

    btn.onPress = function() {
    this._x = Math.round(Math.random() * (500 - this._width));
    this._y = Math.round(Math.random() * (400 - this._height));
    };



    where 500 is the width of your stage and 400 is the height of your statge. This assumes that the button was created with its registration point at its top left corner (so positioning the button at the point (0, 0) would place the button with its top left corner exactly on at the top left corner of your movie)

    I notice from another thread you say you use flash 5. here's a flash 5 version.

    in this file the button is contained inside a movie clip. when the button is pressed it moves the clip around.
