    Aha!

    Okay, I figured it out. Apparently, the UI scroller component is only active if it detects that the textfield has a maxscroll over 0. I traced my textfield and it was at 30. It still wasn't coming...

    MX UI component - scrollbar

    I've designed my own scRollers before but was trying to get the canned UI component to work for me. The Help file states I can drop it on my dynamic textfield and it should work, but I'm finding...

    agreed

    Pellepiano is right. If the text is already in the MC, you can either use the button to change the position of the text object when desired or change its _visible property.

  4. very good!

    It may be your first Flash inclusive site, but it's defintitely not the first web site you've designed. I thought it was very good. You've obviously spent a lot of time, and it shows.

    one thing to try

    If you've designed a MC to play when you cursor over your button, there's one thing you can do without starting over:

    1) Create a new button object
    2) In the button properties, access the library...

    false advertising

    This is not an extreme newbie question...give yourself a little more credit than that. What you want to do sounds pretty sophisticated to me. I do know Flash does not in of itself provide scripting...

    This is easy to accomplish with the GetUrl action. Attach some script that looks like this to your button:

    On (Release) {
    GetURL ("myPowerPoint.ppt");
    }

    Do keep in mind though that the end...

    answer

    If you're using something like the GetURL script for your menu buttons you'll notice there's a Window option. It provides choices like _blank, _parent, and _top. You don't have to use those...

    one way

    The easiest thing I've found to do to accomplish this is to load the dynamic text field's content from an outside .txt file using the loadVariables command. If you put a check in the HTML box on the...

    double check

    Make sure that your MC actually has the instance name "content" and is not just named that in your library. The previous scripting will only work if your instances are named correctly. Try using...

    try this

    Try this for the action script on your menu button:

    On (Release) {
    _root.content.GotoandPlay(x);
    }

    Where 'x' is the frame number or frame label within the content MC.

    Good luck!
  22. i think this works

    In the box for the GetURL command, there is a window field. Specify the name of the target frame here and the URL will load in that frame.

    Good luck.
  23. the reason

    The reason this happens in the first place, quite by accident, the window flag somehow has gotten tripped to _blank. This opens a new browser window in addition to starting up the email software...
