Actionscript for Flash 5 dummies: Creating radio buttons
Hello all and welcome to the third installment in the Actionscript for Flash 5 dummies series, Creating radio buttons. I know, I know, it's been a long time coming, but I think you'll find it was worth the wait.
If you're new to the series, I heartily recommend that you read the two first installments, Scrolling a text box I and II. While they're not necessary in order to finish this tutorial, it's still a good idea to read because this tutorial has in mind that you completed the first two tutorials.
As always, you can be reminded of further tutorials by sending a blank e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with "subscribe" in the subject line.
Without further ado, here's the movie we're going to make:
Now, I know what you're saying. Radio buttons, how, hum, boring. Why yes, in fact. However, they are some of the most basic and intuitive to use interactive elements. The important thing to remember is that almost anybody that will go to your site will know instinctively how to use them.
Not only is it easy for users to use radio buttons, but if you code your buttons right, they will also be extremely easy for you to use. That is, updating, or recreating such a thing will be as easy as editing a few lines of code, or copy and paste.
Okay, enough with the small talk, let's get it on already.
