This option is the last option below the black line and should be treated differently to the previous two. It involves a little more actionscripting to get it to work, however the "Wait for User Action" option delivers more control over fading out the text effect. This option is located below the line and deals with how the fading out part of the text effect should be controlled. How your effect will fade in will depend on what option you select from above the black line.
The Actionscript commands used to implement the effect was a follows. The Load Movie action was placed on the first frame of the main timeline (or early on in the movie). The Set Property Actions are used to position the text effect, and as previously discussed the effect appears then the Tell Target action (below) is used to tell the .SWF file to fade out.
Load Movie ("option6.swf", 1) ... Set Property ("_level1", X Position) = 100 Set Property ("_level1", Y Position) = 18 ... On (Release) Begin Tell Target ("_level1") Go to and Play ("fadeout") End Tell Target End On
The tell target action does not necessarily have to be placed on a button, this has been done to highlight the fact that this option gives you total control over when your text effect plays. You can also replay you text effect when ever you want. Rather than using the Play action or frame numbers. Flashtyper has built-in labels that make it easy to code. You can use the label "start" to begin playing your text fx and the label "fadeout" to begin fading out your text fx.
