Greetings.

How do I add a 'click' sound on mouseover that will apply to all buttons in my flex project? Looking forward to your responses.

Thanks

The above code is done in AS2 and it won't work in Flex environment.

You can do something like this.

CyanBlue
<fx:Script>
	<![CDATA[
	
		private function onRollOver(e:MouseEvent):void
		{
			var sound:Sound = new Sound(new URLRequest("path/to/sound.mp3"));
			sound.play();
		}
		
	]]>
</fx:Script>

<s:Button width="100" height="50" label="ROLL OVER ME" mouseOver="onRollOver(event)" />

Open in new window

CyanBlue I've tried your response but get the following error, maybe I'm implementing it incorrectly.

Error #2044: Unhandled IOErrorEvent:. text=Error #2032: Stream Error.
      at outreach/onRollOver()[C:\outreach\src\outreach.mxml:35]
      at outreach/___outreach_Button19_mouseOver()[C:\outreach\src\outreach.mxml:290]


This is the code for one of my many buttons in the interface

<s:Button includeIn="State1" width="158" height="170"
                    label="Learn the link"
                    color="#FFFFFF" fontSize="22" horizontalCenter="310" skinClass="skins.TransBtn2"
                    verticalCenter="-2"
                    click="currentState='interface1'"/>

Got it working. My path to the sound file was incorrect. Thank you for a really simple solution.
