AS3 Submenu Buttons Not Working
on Sep 30, 2009 at 3:42:30 pm

Hello...
I am migrating from AS2 to AS3 and realize the button functionality is totally different. I have a website with buttons that have submenus. I have the first layer of buttons working. They have eventListeners attached that take them to a labeled frame on the timeline. When you get to that labeled frame there is a submenu of buttons there. I tried putting the code for those buttons in the same script on frame 1 but it messes up the movie.

I think it has something to do with the buttons not actually being there on frame 1 when the script is read. I cannot figure out where to put the script for the submenu buttons to make them work. I think I have to put a parent type script in there. Sorry I dont even know what to look up.

If anyone could please shed some light on this I would really appreciate. I am hoping this is not a difficult thing to do.

Here is the code on frame 1:
stop();



function goCollections(e:MouseEvent):void {
gotoAndStop("collections");
}
collections_btn.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, goCollections);

function goRaison(e:MouseEvent):void {
gotoAndStop("raison");
}
raison_btn.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, goRaison);

function goStores(e:MouseEvent):void {
gotoAndStop("stores");
}
stores_btn.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, goStores);



function goNews(e:MouseEvent):void {
gotoAndStop("news");
var link:URLRequest = new URLRequest("http://coclico.blogspot.com/");
navigateToURL(link);
}
news_btn.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, goNews);


function goShop(e:MouseEvent):void {
var link:URLRequest = new URLRequest("http://www.shopcoclico.com");
navigateToURL(link);
}
shop_btn.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, goShop);


function goContact(e:MouseEvent):void {
gotoAndStop("contact");
}
contact_btn.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, goContact);

function goSpring(e:MouseEvent):void {
gotoAndStop("spring");
}
spring_btn.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, goSpring);

function goEco(e:MouseEvent):void {
gotoAndStop("eco");
}
eco_btn.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, goEco);


Thanks to anyone who can shed some light on this or just give me a heads up if this is something really difficult and I may just go back to AS2.

Thanks! Sandra
