    Please Please help me. Button styles

    Hey everyone, I am trying to get my buttons to have this type of effect, as shown in the following url:

    http://www.templatemonster.com/flash...tes/25611.html

    I have been trying for several days to figure out how to get this effect. Can someone help me or lead me in the direction to get this effect? Also I would like it if someone could give me the name of this type of effect.


    Thanks

    Linking problems/

    Thanks. i have ran into another problem. I am trying to assign a link to my buttons that will play a specific movie file that will act as a transition. Here is my code:

    stop();

    this.onEnterFrame = function(){
    if(rewind == true){
    prevFrame();
    }
    }

    this.onRollOver = function(){
    rewind = false; //
    play();
    }

    this.onRollOut = function(){
    rewind = true;
    }

    this.onRelease = function(){
    mc_AllButtons_Scen2.gotoAndPlay ();
    }

    I have tried so many different ways to get this to work. Any suggestions?

    .gotoAndPlay() takes parameters. For example :
    Actionscript Code:
    mc.gotoAndPlay(10) // mc will go to frame 10 and play
    mc.gotoAndPlay("someLabel") //mc will go to frame with label "someLabel" and play

    Ok,

    when i place this into my code I click my button and nothing happens. i want it to go to a specific movie clip that i have created within my flash document, but it does not. Correct me if i am wrong, but with each flash movie I make within my flash document i should be able to route them accordingly within my document. For example I should be able to go to from one movie to the next by linking buttons.

    It doesn't happen exactly like that. Read below:

    You have a timeline with keyframes. you have a playhead. You need to send that playhead, via button actions, on a keyframe of the timeline where you have the content you want to show.

    That keyframe of the timeline can be targeted either by its number or by its label.
