I am building a flash website and will like to use this sliding style
Please take a look at the link below as this explains it
click on the welcome link and see how the welcome section slides out.
a. when you click on the welcome link the welcome page loads and the welcome section slides out
b. when you click on the > sign it slides back in
c. When you click on the < sign it slides back out
d. Notice that the sliding is smooth and not too fast
e. Notice that the welcome section does not slide over the links
f. Notice how this section(welcome section) is transparent and we can see what is in the background.
i started by drawing a rectangle and tried to drop a button on the rectange so that I can click on the button to do the slide in. When I run it, I get an error saying I dont have access to the button.
How can i do something like this please. A little step by step approach will be helpful. Just started using flash 3 weeks ago but have good programming knowledge.
I am using flash cs5 with actions script 3. I guess the challenge (starting point) is to get the button sit on the rectangle and group both and still be able to make the button clickable. This way the rectangle with the button on it can slide back and forth. Maybe am wrong with my thinking.
