04-29-2001, 04:00 PM
I need help for creating a rollover menu. I have a starting image and what i want it to do is this: when the mouse goes over it, my animation menu scrolls down out of the image (created in flash, not imported) reveiling a number of links which can can scroll over and they, themselves are buttons. Like a button within a button within a movie.

I know it has something to do he Go To and Stop action....I think, but I really don't know. HELP,

Many ways to do this, hers one woithout too much AS

--This will tell your menu to drop
On press
tell target "menudrop"

--You need to have a stop action at the end of the drop movie clip sequence, after that froame make another keyframe and set up the clip for it to return to it orginal starting location.

"menudrop" will be a movieclip that contains buttons, and if you want "menudrop" clip to rise upon leaving these buttons use this

on release, roll out, drag out
tell target"menudrp"

--this will play the "menudrop" clip until it reaches a script that makes it go to and stop frame 1 of current movie clip

There are tutorials on Flashkit that show you how to do this step by step, hope this helps somehow.
