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

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.

Try this:
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.

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 and then go to Developers > Exchange. Also, you can check with the author of the article at

Vector graphics

August 13, 2003


This site is very much useful for me to clear my doubts. But please tell me what is meant by vector and vector graphics.

Normal or bitmap graphics used in computers is a series of pixels or little colored squares. This make the image file size large and the squares show up when enlarged.

Vector graphics use lines that are defined by equations. Areas inbetween lines can be filled in with color. This allows the image size to be much smaller, which is good for using on the Internet. Also, on enlargement, the lines are still sharp.
