I am in a similar situation to csbryce - I too have five buttons that I am trying to link to separate tell targets, which are also scrolling text boxes. I notice csbryce has got no replies - is this because the question is just too darned easy and we are missing something really obvious - or because tell targets smell?
I have done the scrolling text box fine, (who needs MX?). I have created separate symbol movie clips with the boxes in and named them as per Kirupa’s tutorial. My problem is that I cannot seem to then drag them onto the stage from the library. Even if I did, I have a huge stage - where do I drag them? to different frames I assume?
Were I able to do this, would I simply link each button to the keyframe that they referred to. So that would be gotoandplay 300, 301, 302, etc?
At the moment I’m getting ‘target not found’.
Also, if I am flitting from frame to frame, how can I keep audio playing? At the moment it’s played with a simple gotoandplay command at frame x - presumably if the buttons are activating separate frames to get the text boxes changing, the music will die - Don Maclane would not be pleased.
Not so bothered about the audio - but if any of you flash gurus wouldn’t mind putting a clothes peg on your nose and helping us get these text boxes responding properly, it would be much appreciated.
