Hi, I have recently started using Flash CS3, after upgrading from Flash MX 2004. I am having a few problems trying to get buttons to work in CS3. I have created a hotspot button as part of a banner for one of my projects, which will link to an external website. In the past I would have clicked on this in Flash, then opened the actionscript window, added the relevant code and the button would function. However in CS3 it will not allow me to add code to the button in this same way. Any help with creating buttons with CS3 would be much appreciated!
I'm just learning Flash at the moment, so forgive me if this is obvious, but I think your best bet would be to convert your hot spot button symbol into a movie clip symbol instead. Then instead of applying actionscript directly to the button, have one master actionscript layer and refer to the button movie clip there.(you'll have to give the movie clip symbol and instance name and refer to it by that name.)
hope this helps.
