Flash MX Common Libraries
Mr. Skocko Room 246 • 593-5446 • Mac LabValhalla Home

 

Navigate to Window > Common Libraries > and notice that you have three options...

    

We'll get to Learning Interactions later, for now just explore Buttons and Sounds

 

Double-click to open a folder in the Buttons Library and select any button

  

Clicking on the arrow gives you a preview of the button in action

You can drag any of these buttons onto your Stage to use them in your projects (but be careful to have the correct layer and keyframe selected before you do)

Once you've got an instance on your Stage, be sure to double-click it to see how it was built (in button edit mode)

 

Click on a sound to select it and the waveform appears

Click the arrow to hear the sound

You can drag any of these sounds onto your Stage to use them in your projects (once again, take care to select the correct layer and keyframe first)

 

Yes you can use these resources but I will also require you to be able to build your own buttons from scratch
