    [MX] click button, image appears/disappears

    It's been years since I last coded in Flash so even if I remember some stuff, the mundane things escaped me...

    so please bear with me...

    several buttons
    several images

    upon loading. one image is visible, rest is not.
    when one button is clicked, the visible image goes off and another image, then invisible should now be visible.

    now, I realize that the code for the button should be
    Code:
    Button1.onRelease=function(){
    	image1._visible=true;
    	image2._visible=false;
    }
    where button1 is the instance name I put via the properties at the bottom of the window
    image1 and image2 is the instance name for the images.

    now, how do I set the images to be _visible=false when the movie loads?
    I set it in a frame right? but what exactly is the code?

    also, for the button codes, should the above code be OK?

    I realize I'm going to look like a noob but can you give me an example code?

    thanks

    images to be _visible=false when the movie loads

    image1._visible = image2._visible = false;

    your button code is fine

    the code for the images works, but my button idea flopped.

    I get this message on output

    Scene=Scene 1, Layer=Layer 1, Frame=1: Line 1: Statement must appear within on handler
    btn1.onRelease=function(){
    i attached a sample thingy for you all to tinker...

    Scene=Scene 1, Layer=Layer 1, Frame=1: Line 1: Statement must appear within on handler
    btn1.onRelease=function(){


    select the button
    give it an instance name - btn1
    cut the code from the actionscript editor
    select the main timeline (same frame as button)
    paste the code to the main timeline frame
    test
