Problems in learning Flash
October 31, 2004
I am in Brazil. I've been trying to learn programming using Flash. My main problem is to stablish differences between tools and resources. The main reason is I can't find definition of concepts. Another reason is Macromedia is modifying the layout that turn most existing literature obsolete. I couldn't find the difference between Movie Clip and Animated Graph

One good source for Flash information and tutorials is at www.flashkit.com
You can also try http://www.kirupa.com/ for information.
Certainly, do not give up on www.macromedia.com. They have much archived information.
Also check http://www.macromedia.com/cfusion/usergroups/index.cfm to find user groups in Brazil. They are a good source for information.
Movie keeps playing
September 1, 2004
Hi, whenever i create a document in flash whaether it be a presentaion or movie, i add my content & buttons. When I test the movie it plays all the scenes without letting me actually choose a button, although you can press the button when designing the application & they work. There is no help that i can find on this in flash. I can do the other things like moving graphics & effects & that sort, but i can't fix this play problem.

There are a few things to do, depending on your configuration.
One thing is to add "stop();" as an Action in a Keyfame in your movie. Click on a layer, and go to the Action panel to type in stop().
You might have to experiment on where to add stop().
You can also unclick Loop in your Publish Settings, but that probably won't affect your test.

You need to have the free Flash player installed on your computer for the movies to play. You can download that from www.macromedia.com.

Having trouble making a button
Topic: Interactive Buttons
February 5, 2004
hey!! was working with flash after a while...and got stuck with the "buttons". now the problem i am facing is.. after going to new symbol...and i write the name choose behaviour as button...so i get the up, over, down, hit stuff...now as soon as i get the button symbol from the library and place it in "up" and then when i go to "over" the button is ALREADY THERE. i first thought may be that's the way it should be..but coz of this reason when everything i have done and then when i say edit movie...it is not a button yet...
please explain this to me and tell me where am i going wrong.....thanx
You can use ready-made buttons from the Common Library. Just drag one onto your stage, and it is ready to use. Click on the button and add an Action to make it do something.
It sounds like you were able to make a button OK. Then you go back to Scene 1 and drag the button to the stage from the Library. When you test the movie (Ctrl-Enter) the button should work as designed.
How to do it
Topic: Simple Animations
January 11, 2004
I would like to create the simple Flash like the moving circle, but it not works.
I use stage, circle (tool), insert frame, time ( 20), ...
Please shows me the simple flash that i can follow to make the picture (circle) moving.
1. Draw the circle or other figure.
2. At some frame like 20, from the menu: insert > frame.
3. Then click on frame 20 and from the menu: insert > create motion tween.
4. Click on the pointer or arrow tool and then drag the circle to the new position.
5. Press Ctrl+Enter to see the animation.
Using quiz in Director
November 13, 2003
i'd like to know whether director mx can generate marks (overall) in a quiz.
e.g: there are 10 questions in a quiz. how would we know that how many questions that we answer correct? can we do it with director mx? how?
I'm sure you can do it. Macromedia may already have components to do that. Check http://www.macromedia.com/ and then go to Developers > Exchange. Also, you can check with the author of the article at firstname.lastname@example.org.
