Thanks for an excellent tute on hover captions. I would dearly like to incorporate these captions in explaining how to use the scrollbar component in a Flash movie (idiots guide stuff like “click here to scroll up” or “click and drag up or down etc”, but the movie is aimed at beginners)
Problem is that when inserting an “invisible” movie clip over the top of the scrollbar, it renders the parts of the scrollbar inoperable that the movie clip is covering. Put the movie clip “under” the scrollbar and it will not work (obvious logic, topmost layer object has right of way)
I have incorporated the “trigger” script into a component button, and that seems to work OK, so my guess is that the script needs to be incorporated into the Scrollbar Component. At this point I freeze. Looking at the make up of the component I immediately realise that it’s beyond me. It’s far too complicated for my humble (lack of…) abilities, so here goes for a call for help.
Where does script get inserted to trigger a hover cation to come up when the cursor is over the up arrow, down arrow, and slider?
Many thanks in anticipation of a saviour
