I have a movie clip with action script that makes it act like a button. I would like the text on the button to stretch from 0 to 6 A/V (over 3 or 4 frames) on rollOver.  How do I do that? To see what else is going on see this question: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Photos_Graphics/Web_Graphics/Macromedia_Flash/Q_22971568.html

Thanks!

Here's a link to the flash file: http://www.designamania.com/MichaelTekstra/textra_beta3f.fla
The effect I'm looking to get is for the text on the buttons to stretch out on mouse over.

Thanks,

John

Uhh... you mean letter spacing? If so, after taking a look at your fla; you're going to need Flash 8... If you do have Flash 8 you can safely modify the btn_1 MovieClip's code to this:

<code snippet>

-V
Frame 1:
 
stop();
myTextFormat = new TextFormat();
myTextFormat.bold = true;
myTextFormat.italic = true;
myTextFormat.color = 0x000000;
myTextFormat.letterSpacing = 0;
buttonText.setTextFormat(myTextFormat);
 
Frame 2:
 
stop();
myTextFormat = new TextFormat();
myTextFormat.bold = true;
myTextFormat.italic = true;
myTextFormat.color = 0xFFFFFF;
myTextFormat.letterSpacing = 2;
buttonText.setTextFormat(myTextFormat);
 
Frame 3:
 
stop();
myTextFormat = new TextFormat();
myTextFormat.bold = true;
myTextFormat.italic = true;
myTextFormat.color = 0x000000;
myTextFormat.letterSpacing = 0;
buttonText.setTextFormat(myTextFormat);
