View Full Version : Bouncing Buttons - FLA needed

07-25-2003, 02:31 AM
Hi flashers :) ,

I'm looking for a tutorial describing the action script effect of bouncing boxes/buttons by mouseover.

I've already found one on actionscript.org:

http://www.actionscript.org/showMovie.php?id=765.The problem is that I couldn't open the fla enclosed to this movie. I need a fla for flash 5. Maybe someone can help me out.

Thanks a lot:D

I think this file (http://www.actionscript.org/showMovie.php?id=466) is in Flash5 format.

Thanks Mr Pixelwit (god of all action scripting).

Do you have one more, similar to the first tutorial. I need a fla describing how to achive the bouncing effet by roll over/mouse over, not by clicking. I'm not a codegeek, that's why I need it more detailed. I want to learn it. Sorry to ask you again.

God. HA! That's a good one.

Files rarely work exactly the way you want. Now's as good a time as any to learn how to tweak one up.

Open the FLA and make sure the actions panel is open. Click a button and where it says "on(release)" change it to "on(rollOver)". Repeat for all other buttons. Voila now everything works on a rollOver event.

Next you'll want the buttons to move instead of the PiXELWiT logo. That'll be a bit more complicated as you'll need to nest your buttons inside a Movieclip, take the code from the logo and put it on the new clips holding the buttons then change all the pathing to reflect the new code location.

Sounds fairly complicated but judging by some of your writing I don't think it's anything you can't handle with a bit of head scratching. Especially if you read the tutorial on this site about "pathing".

Think about it, play with it, try to make it work and then ask any specific questions you might have.
