Re: Share code

Well, hopefully this will sneak in as a useful code-esque tip.

In Flash, if you find yourself creating buttons like mad with images in them that you imported or drew, there is an easier way. I found that it is easier to just make part of the movie clickable and to heck with swapping images out and about.

How to do it:
Create a button, on the up, over, and down keyframes, leave them blank. On the hit keyframe, draw a rectangle or square or what have you. When the time comes to put it in the movie, just drag it out and scale away.

This is great if you are doing multiple choice questions, like a quiz, or if you are doing system simulations with screen grabs.
