I tried posting this once before, I will now try once again.
I enjoy the challenge of creating all sorts of things entirely with actionscript (quizes, games, movies, etc). It is not particularily useful but it can be very difficult and fun. It’s very satisfying to show someone an fla file with one empty frame and only an action attatched.
I have only been able to create buttons with actionscript by creating a movie clip - this.createEmptyMovieClip (“InstanceName”, depth) - and then specifying the fill and stroke.
I’ve always wondered what the script is for creating the actual button itself, instead of using a movie clip like a button. For instance, something like - this.createNewButtonInstance(“InstanceName”, depth) - this doesn’t actually work, though.
I’ve looked around before, and I can continue using movie clips if necessary, I just thought I’d ask. If anyone knows and would like to post it here, I would be very grateful.
